The solution to all of Camden's ills is always more parking. Spend a bunch of money to "revitalize" the waterfront by building giant parking lots. Give a bunch of tax money to "lure" a company from a neighboring suburban municipality? Surround it with parking!
Anything which encourages drive-in/park/drive-out behavior does nothing for surrounding businesses or street life. Camden has its problems, but the solution isn't trying to turn into Cherry Hill.
