Urban blight is a process whereby a functioning city, or part of a city, falls into disrepair and decrepitude. Blight threatens public safety, lowers property values and degrades quality of life.
Here’s how you can help:
Don’t litter – Keep trash out of our neighborhoods
Know your disposal days – You can find out the collection days for your trash, recycling and yard waste
Report blight using Bridgeport 311 mobile application or by calling (203) 576-7765, e-mailing email@example.com.
Did you know that your grass should be no higher than 15 inches over most of your property? Please keep your yard maintained. Remember, knee high is too high. Use the Bridgeport 311 mobile application to report a property with overgrown grass higher than 15 inches.
Abandoned and unkempt homes, buildings and properties
Vacant and abandoned properties have negative spillover effects that impact neighboring properties and, when concentrated, entire communities and even cities. Research links foreclosed, vacant, and abandoned properties with reduced property values, increased crime, increased risk to public health and welfare, and increased costs for municipal governments.
