Save the Dam petition

Mon, 11/22/2021 - 2:15pm
On behalf of our Save the Dam Falls Committee, I would like to thank the hundreds of Camden voters who have already signed our petition “to protect, preserve, maintain, and repair” the Montgomery Dam near Harbor Park.  
Our goal is to prevent the needless destruction or removal of this historic dam and the beautiful waterfall that cascades over it and into Camden Harbor.  It’s heartening to discover that so many of our neighbors agree with us, that the dam and waterfall are part of Camden’s identity, that they should be preserved and cherished for future generations.  
Our plan is to keep collecting more signatures over the winter, to keep informing Camden residents about why the dam and waterfall should be preserved, and to make sure the voters of Camden get to decide what they want.
