Camden City Council approved a resolution Tuesday committing the city to providing a 10 percent match of $25,000 for a Municipal Association of South Carolina (MASC) Hometown Economic Development Grant. The money would be used, according to the resolution, to “engage a professional planning and design firm for the design of infill live/work space to revitalize the main thoroughfare of west Rutledge Street through the city.”
