Office of Planning & Economic Development

Welcome to the Office of Planning & Economic Development ("OPED"). Our mission -- per Mayor Ganim's direction, and consistent with our award-winning master plan, Plan Bridgeport -- is to develop the economic life of the city.

Who Are We?

We are The City of Bridgeport's Team focused on building economic life, planning the future, and creating safe & healthy environments.  When it comes to progress:

We Partner

If you want to open a business, develop a property, advance a great idea for your neighborhood, we’ll plug you into the resources you need to succeed. 

We Plan

Every day, we work with Bridgeporters to design a better future. Keep an eye out for new bike lanes, new neighborhood parks, food truck plazas, public art, wider sidewalks, more trees, brighter lights, community festivals and fun.  Have an idea?  Let us know.

We Push the Projects Forward.

We attract the funding and the partners to make the major changes happen: the conversion of the old ballpark into an entertainment center; the rebirth of downtown as a residential neighborhood; the clean-up of blighted properties. We tackle the big stuff where the City must play a role.
