Neighborhood Revitalization Plans
Bridgeport has organized Neighborhood Revitialization Zones in order to expand and improve business and housing in low-to-moderate income neighborhoods or areas within neighborhoods. With technical assistance from the City and outside consultants, neighborhood residents, non-profits, and faith-based organizations meet and form stakeholder groups. These groups identify the priorities and needs of the neighborhoods and can request City Council approval to become Neighborhood Revitalization Zones (NRZs). These NRZs then become eligible to borrow state money to purchase blighted properties or offer low-interest loans to qualifying businesses for facade improvements. The plans and draft plans for NRZs that have reached the later stages of planning are below.
