ABOUT THE REGIONAL COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
The Greater Bridgeport Regional Council is developing a blueprint for the future – a new Regional Comprehensive Plan that will guide decision making and investment over the next 10 years!
What is a Regional Comprehensive Plan?
The Regional Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for future growth and development within the Greater Bridgeport Region. Based on a strong foundation of community input, the Plan guides the region’s governments as they make policy decisions on land use, housing, transportation, infrastructure, economic development, sustainability, and more. A collective vision increases cooperation and communication between governments and develops coordinated approaches to regional problems.
The State of Connecticut requires all regional planning organizations to develop a plan, formally referred to as a Regional Plan of Conservation and Development, every 10 years. The GBRC’s last plan was adopted in January 2008.
A plan is being created to improve travel options in the region, from bike and walking paths to buses and train connections. By strengthening the region’s transportation network through improvements to transit links between communities, neighborhoods will benefit. MORE INFO
