Bridgeport Comprehensive Plan Update Evaluation

In 2013, the City of Bridgeport adopted a new comprehensive plan intended to guide future growth and decision-making in the community as required by state law. Since then, the city has been actively working to implement many of the plan recommendations, including the development of a recreational center. This year, the city is re-evaluating the plan to make sure it is still relevant to the community. The City of Bridgeport would greatly appreciate you taking four or five minutes of your time to take this brief survey. Thanks.
