300 more homes in Camden by 2018?
Statistics also show not enough affordable housing in city

There is a chance that there could be up to 300 new homes in Camden by 2018, just five years away, if U.S. Census and other projections hold up. The statistic -- based on a projected 8 percent increase in housing stock from 2011 to 2018 -- is part of a draft revision of Camden’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan. While the state of South Carolina only requires such plan to completely updated every 10 years -- with the last update for Camden’s plan in 2007 -- local authorities are also required to revise sections of the plan at the five-year mark.
