this is an important step if bridgeport wants to pull off the dream of turning downtown into a residental/ retail mecca.

they gotta get people to buy the units. i don't know if "old" bridgeport downtown reputation will haunt them on this cause.

I agree with CTM. Homeless people need good paying jobs.
