Chamber Unveils Plans For Interior Renovations To Camden Visitor Center

The Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce announced plans for interior renovations to their Visitor Center on the Public Landing in Camden, a facility owned by the Town of Camden and leased to the Chamber.

The project will involve removal of interior walls to expand the main member display room from the current 360 square feet to over 600 square feet, eliminating two unused offices to the rear of the current member display area. New flooring, lighting fixtures, and display fixtures will be added, putting a fresh face on this facility that welcomes thousands of visitors to Camden and the region each year. Chamber leaders have collaborated with town officials and members of the Design Team from the Camden Downtown Network Board in recent weeks to gain support for these renovations.
