Join us this Thursday, March 24, for a public open house to learn about coastal resilience and planning efforts in Bridgeport, CT resulting from the Rebuild by Design competition.
The focus of the Open House will be to share research and design work underway, and to outline the process ahead and how it relates to the other waterfront planning efforts currently underway in Bridgeport. The design team will discuss upcoming community engagement opportunities for you and fellow Bridgeport residents in the months ahead.
There will be brief introductory remarks from 2:30, and opportunities to see and discuss work in progress throughout the afternoon. With light refreshments and open to the public. Please RSVP to Aron Chang at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (504) 524-5308 with any questions.
This site will be the primary workshop space for the Design Team which includes Waggonner & Ball, ARCADIS, and Yale Urban Design Workshop in the months ahead.
About Rebuild by Design Bridgeport
In 2014, the City of Bridgeport and its Design Team – led by Waggonner and Ball – were selected by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to work together on the development of a waterfront resilience plan through the Rebuild by Design Competition. The resulting award of $10 million will be used to develop a plan for reducing flood risk and improving resilience for the South End and Black Rock areas, and to build a pilot project in the South End that serves as a catalyst for full implementation of the broader flood protection and resilience strategies.The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the State of Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH) through the Community Development Block Grant- Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program.
