CWDI – Street Naming Survey Results and Next Steps
Press Release / July 25, 2023

On July 1, 2023, Cambridge Waterfront Development, Inc. (CWDI) closed the online survey seeking community input on naming a new street being added to Cambridge Harbor.

The survey, managed by BCT Design Group (BCT), solicited responses and suggestions to help CWDI focus street naming efforts by asking the public to rank the four possible naming themes, which were: 1) Rose Hill; 2)Roses; 3)Light / Sources of Light; 4) Maritime Heritage.

BCT analyzed the public’s input and reported the following results:

“We are pleased with the clarity the community provided,” says Matt Leonard, CWDI’s Executive Director. “Maritime Heritage is the theme they selected and on which we are now focused.”

CWDI is working with BCT to develop three final name choices based on the Maritime Heritage theme selected by the community, including evaluating some of the specific names suggested by those who completed the survey. The three naming options will be presented live to the public on the new road at Cambridge Harbor on August 8, 2023, beginning at 5:30PM (See Map Below).

This free event will include free ice cream, Cambridge Harbor merchandise giveaways, and most importantly the opportunity for the community to make the final naming decision and know the results in real time.

“This will be our first community event on the newly opened site,” says Leonard. “On a small scale, the community will experience the type of free activities we intend for them regularly as we build-out the public parks and amenity spaces throughout Cambridge Harbor.”

Cambridge Harbor is being planned as a highly activated waterfront district to include public spaces, amenities, and events focused on promoting the City of Cambridge and Dorchester County’s multi-faceted history, heritage, and culture while creating a unique destination for tourism.

CWDI is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit development corporation formed through a joint Agreement of the City of Cambridge, Maryland; Dorchester County, Maryland; and the State of Maryland. CWDI’s mission is to develop Cambridge Harbor in partnership with the community, to the benefit of the community, and to sustainably operate and maintain Cambridge Harbor as an inviting, accessible, active, and enjoyable place to live, work, play, and visit.
