The future of Eastern Shore communities relies on smart land use policies that protect our farmland and farming economy from poorly planned development, prepares coastlines for rising seas and marsh migration, and connects our communities through a dynamic park and trail system.
This synergistic mix of business, open green space, and well-thought out development enables our rural towns to thrive.none

Eastern Shore Land Conservancy is currently working on two town project initiatives in the Eastern Shore region, both located in Cambridge, Maryland. You can read about each of these below.
Cross Street Partners, in partnership with ESLC, will re-purpose the historic Phillips Packing Company, Factory F in Cambridge, Maryland. Building on the Eastern Shore’s deep tradition of agricultural and fishing assets, the $23,000,000, 60,000 square foot historic Phillips Packing House Building will be designed to support and grow regional economic opportunities connected to agriculture, aquaculture, environmental technologies, and tourism. The Packing House will house a synergistic mix of tech and creative entrepreneurs, food production and food related retail/eateries, as well as a two-story, light-filled open atrium space for continuous public programs and private events.
Adjacent to the Phillips Building is the future site of Cannery Park – a new, 7-acre ‘central park’ for the City of Cambridge that will incorporate active and passive spaces for recreation.
