Eileen Carey - Economic Development Specialist
City of Bridgeport, Connecticut
The City of Bridgeport was the third city in the country to receive a
Brownfield Pilot. We used the $200,000 to create an inventory of our
brownfields, the result of which was about 205 sites which were
prioritized by a ranking system. I am happy to say there has been
progress on 4 of our 6 prioritized sites at this time.
We are in the process of working with the National Parks Service on a
new pilot called Groundwork Trust. We are also in the process of
applying for the EPA RLF, and trying become an EPA Showcase Community.
There is more to most of this, but I thought I would keep it short.
