Former Hazelwood Cleaners building on work session agenda
Placeholder Image
529 East DeKalb St. has stood vacant for many years, since Hazelwood Cleaners moved out approximately a decade ago. Four years ago, the city of Camden’s building official and fire inspector determined the structure -- which was also once Camden’s first movie theater -- “an immediate hazard” due to the then-potential collapse of its 35-foot-plus walls because of a failing roof. Then, former City Manager Kevin Bronson informed Camden City Council the city notified the property’s owner and repeatedly asked the owner to fix the problem.
