We’re working to stop this dangerous project.
One Hundred Miles has been working since 2017 to prevent Spaceport Camden from launching rockets over our coast. We have built a network of thousands of concerned citizens and partnered with dozens of partner organizations to ensure robust civic discourse informs local, state, and federal decision-making regarding the project. In 2018, OHM staff was appointed by County Commissioners to sit on the Spaceport Camden Environmental Subcommittee. This body worked for the better part of a year to prepare comments for the project’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement.
Over the years, our work to understand the facts about how spaceports operate in and impact other US communities and to seek more specific information about Spaceport Camden has run into roadblocks in Camden County. In 2019, the Southern Environmental Law Center filed a lawsuit on our behalf against the county for withholding information about the spaceport. Today, we continue to engage the public on this issue. In addition to encouraging concerned citizens to send in comments on the Consistency Certification, we are helping the Taxpayers Against Camden Spaceport obtain signatures on a petition that we hope will trigger a referendum on Camden County’s decision to purchase the site where Spaceport Camden will be located.
