The Bridgeport Economic Development Corp.'s efforts to continue cleaning up of the city's brownfields got a boost after a $100,000 grant from the state Department of Economic and Community Development was approved by the state Bond Commission.

BEDCO is an affiliate of the Bridgeport Regional Business Council and the city.

"As a result of our working partnership with the city of Bridgeport in which the Business Council provides support to the mayor's (Mayor Bill Finch) `B-Green 2020' plan to make Bridgeport into a cleaner and greener place, we have been hard at work over the last three years in developing an Eco-Technology Park on the West End of the city," Paul Timpanelli, BRBC president and CEO, said in a statement.

The DECD funding comes after Finch led an Earth Day tour in April of the city's Eco-Technology Park, a development of reclaimed derelict industrial land that is being touted as the home to a growing number of businesses that focuses on sustainable industries such as recycling and renewable energy.
