Neighborhood Revitalization

Public Act 95-340, as amended by Public Act 99-35, established a process for the development of Neighborhood Revitalization Zones (NRZs). The objective of the NRZ process is to revitalize neighborhoods through the collaborative involvement of residents, businesses, and government to determine the vision and priorities of the individual neighborhoods. In Bridgeport, the impetus for this concept was the development of four major new school development projects and the projection, growth and anticipated developmental needs in those areas. The NRZ process provides a mechanism for local stakeholders in these neighborhoods, along with local municipal officials, to develop a strategic plan to revitalize their neighborhoods. Municipality participation in this process initiates with a resolution of their legislative body.
