Bridgeport’s Vision

Bridgeport is a regional center in eastern Fairfield County. As a regional center and transportation hub, Bridgeport provides the region with goods, services, jobs, higher education and healthcare. Bridgeport is a sustainable city with an environment, governance, and practices that support a livable city for generations into the future. As a livable city, Bridgeport has a diversity of housing options and educational opportunities in an environment that is safe, clean, and easy to travel within. The City’s residents are healthy and have access to healthy food, recreation opportunities, and health care. Bridgeport is an equitable community that is inclusive and celebrates its diversity. The City’s costs and resources are fairly distributed among residents, property owners, and other stakeholders and city policies are fair and uniformly enforced. Nature is present and accessible throughout the City – in parks, on streets, in neighborhoods, and along the City’s waterfront. It provides habitat, contributes to health and supports outdoor recreation. Bridgeport has a robust economy which provides jobs and opportunities for a broad spectrum of its residents.
