Mayor Ganim Invites All to Kick Off Public Housing Exterior Improvement Project and Park City Pickin’ It Up

Mayor Ganim to Restore Tennis Courts and Playground at Trumbull Gardens

Bridgeport, CT Mayor Joseph Ganim will join the Bridgeport Police Department, Housing Commissioner Steve Nelson, Public Facilities, City Council members, residents, and volunteers to  kick off the Public Housing Exterior Improvement Project and continue Bridgeport’s anti-litter campaign ‘Park City Pickin’ It Up’. The city-wide cleanup taskforce will be Trumbull Gardens and Second Stone Ridge Co-Op, 169 Yaremich Drive, Bridgeport, CT on Saturday, June 17, 2017 from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. In addition to the clean-up, Trumbull Gardens will the first stop on the Public Housing Exterior Improvement Project. This initiative will enhance and restore the exterior of Bridgeport Housing Authority (BHA) public housing sites: Greene Homes, P.T. Barnum, Harborview Towers and Trumbull Gardens. For Trumbull Garden’s residents, these improvements include the restoration of their tennis courts and playground on site.

“These initiatives have the benefits of improving the appearance and vibrancy for our residents and visitors; it also brings a sense of pride in your home,” said Mayor Ganim. “It’s that feeling of welcoming and pride in your neighborhood and the overall positive quality of life that our residents deserve. We need everyone’s support in making Bridgeport the cleanest the city in the state.”

 

Housing Commissioner Steve Nelson said, “As a member of the housing commission and a long-time resident of this neighborhood, I am so happy that we are leading the way, being supported by Mayor Ganim and getting positive community participation to pick it up and clean it up in Trumbull Gardens. It is a great way to bring the community together and improve our neighborhood pride.”

 

These city-wide and community initiatives, in conjunction with the City’s “War on Blight,” focus on the beautification of the city and overall quality of life for our residents.
