After years of environmental remediation and planning for future use, the Town of Camden is in the process of evaluating proposals for the use of  the former Apollo Tannery site that will be put to residents for a vote. 

In partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency's Brownfields Clean Up Program, and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, a plan for final clean up activities will be developed and implemented to accommodate the plan chosen by voters for how this site will be used.

The following are proposals for the use of the Tannery: 
Northland-Dovetail Consulting
Cranesport, LLC
Midcoast Habitat for Humanity
Friends of Tannery Park 

An analysis and evaluation of these proposals by Camden's Community and Economic Development Committee (CEDAC) can be found here: CEDAC Report on Review of Tannery Proposals.

Information on the impact of each proposal on the Town's tax assessed value and likely property tax revenue can be found here:  Memo from Camden Assessor on Taxable Value Estimations and Analysis of Taxable Value by Proposal.

For more information on discussions around the evaluations of these proposals for the use of this site, please watch the following CEDAC Meetings:

You can view any historical documents or reports on the Tannery on our Surveys & Reports page.
