Bridgeport, August Update

Resilient Bridgeport has released new materials such as the first broadsheet-- an interactive document that includes public comments and highlights from the Resilient Bridgeport Atlas; historic building types and details; critical species of coastal Connecticut; and maps showing how the coastline of the city has changed over time.

The team has also been developing and costing project alternatives and refining the overall strategy through closer study of three focus areas — Black Rock/Cedar Creek, South End-West, and South End-East — and of regional transportation corridors and Seaside Park. They are developing strategies to enable the existing, often-historic building stock to adapt to flood risk and relate to new infrastructure in ways that collectively maintain neighborhood character.

Look out for public events taking place in September. Keep up with Resilient Bridgeport by following their new Facebook page and Twitter account.
