Cambridge Discusses Fate of Governor's Hall


Cambridge, Md.- At a series of meetings Monday night, Cambridge's Economic Development team unveiled a new feasibility study analyzing the Sailwinds Park property, and specifically the Governor's Hall building.

The study, part of the Sailwinds 2020 redevelopment project, discusses various options for the property, as well as staffing and management options, and comparisons to ten other towns across the United States with similar needs to Cambridge.

These were not closed doors meetings, both were open to the public, as the Economic Development department wanted input from the community to help in their selection of a direction.

Associate Director of the department Mary Calloway says the Governor's Hall building may not be around by the time 2020 rolls around.

"It was originally a warehouse, and it was designed as a warehouse, and it's been renovated and dolled up as you might guess to host various events, but the acoustics in there, the heating in there is not ideal for all events." said Calloway.

Victoria Sydnor has lived in Cambridge her whole life, working in her parent's restaurant Snappers.  She says the last time she went to Sailwinds was in 2007 for a concert, and loves the fact the park is being redeveloped.

"That's a huge area.  The concert venue brings in so much in itself, bringing people to Snappers and Cambridge in general that expansion would just be great for the town." said Sydnor.

Calloway says this is just one more step, albeit a big step, for the project, which is on track for the 2020 deadline.
