Cambridge city manager announces ongoing plans for the Pine Street revitalization project

CAMBRIDGE, Md. — The city of Cambridge is well into their revitalization efforts in a neighborhood that desperately needs it, despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

According to city manager, Patrick Comiskey, says the revitalization of Pine Street is moving forward. He says Pine Street has a number of homes that have fallen into disrepair, which is why these revitalization efforts are underway.

Comiskey says the city has had the benefit of working with the choptank chapter of the habitat for humanity on this. He says they are much more experienced when it comes to building homes and they’ve already completed building some homes some on high street.

We’re told people can expect to see the demolishing of some homes in the area soon now that the city council has given their approval. Comiskey says the city has quote, “acquired some properties with our partners on this project, the county government. They have been good about working with us to help us secure properties that need to be demolished or fit in to our hopeful revitalization plan.”

Comiskey also says the city has brought on a new housing specialist to work with city commissioners to help with the revitalization project.
