Spotlight on Main Street: Downtown Bridgeport

Presented By

Fueled by creatives, arts and entertainment, dining and nightlife, Downtown Bridgeport is evolving into an inclusive, affordable and multicultural Downtown.

Connected to highways, trains and buses, it can be easily accessed by car or foot. Once vacant daytime office buildings are being converted into residential units, encouraging even more dining and nightlife in the city center. Downtown Bridgeport’s historic amenities are being brought to life through adaptive reuse and mixed-use projects. Public art is bringing vibrancy and engaging creativity in public spaces.

Attendees will be able to learn from Bridgeport’s struggles and successes bringing projects to the finish line and learn more about the impact a true partnership between a DSSD and an economic development department can have.
