I drive past the Areana and Bluefish Stadium and see all the barren land near Stratford Ave. That has to cost the city of Bridgeports millions of dollars in lost taxes. Why not let people buy the property cheap and let the build something there. It will bring jobs in the construction and whatever is built will need workers. Instead of sitting there vacant for thirty years like it has been. Look what happened to Stamford. Their still growing. Why is everything so difficult to change in Bridgeport. Everytime you hear of a next project it always seems to fall to the wayside.Its time to change Bridgeport it need new blood.

The corruption and greed is what's wrong. Illegal dumping and crooked payoffs for years are the norm so anything that gets built there is going to have payola and graft coming out of it for years, and that isn't counting the construction corruption. Trump couldn't get that land at a decent deal, so it'll stay that way until some of the crooked bast@rds die.

just got back from stamford. brian is right, it is cleaned up in many spots and tons of new construction.
bridgeport, on the other hand, can't seem to get anything accomplished. where this land is, used to be tons of run down multi family houses. they were eyesores and probaly were not collecting any taxes.
i am tired of the way our gov't in bridgeport does business.

And now Catholic schools are closing because the parents of the school children won't pay the tuition! The parents can't pay their own taxes, let alone tuition, and now the schools can't pay theirs. One problem just compounds another.
Time for some serious planning, Finch.

Taxes are too damn because Corruption is very expense, including a $400,000.00 driveway. I could buy a house with a driveway for that much.

If corruption is very 'expense' then maybe they should have a sale.

Bridgeport is going to go the way of Detroit. Once the tax base (read as "responsible, productive people") moves out, all that's left is the entitled (read as "irresponsible, nonproductive people"). Don't kid yourselves. The only way to save Bridgeport is to get rid of Democratic control. These idiots don't understand that if they keep taking, without giving something back, pretty soon there'll be nothing left to take! Or maybe they do understand but they just don't give a rat's ass (which is probably more likely).

on the money sis..........the voters will run out and pull the dem lever because they are literally getting paid by the dems to do it. it takes sacrifice to straighten things out, yet no one will give anything up. same problem on the natl. level.

Right? It's just insane.

Oh and just so you know, the latest news is that ObamaCare will include a tax on aspirin ... because it's white and it works.
