Master Plan Derailed by Error

Officials of Bridgeport admitted that the city's Master Plan of Conservation and Development was improperly adopted last year.

"Planning and Zoning Commission members, who expected to vote Tuesday night on the final version of the rewritten zoning regulations and map, were told by the city attorney's office the vote had to be called off.

The brakes were slammed on the three-year-plus process after the chairman of the Truumbull Planning and Zoning Commission recently wrote Bridgeport zoning officials a letter, stating that the city's adoption of the master plan appears to be null and void because the City Council never voted on the document.

City Attorney Mark Anastasi said the error was brought to Bridgeport's attention at a good time because "the master plan has not been used yet." The problem seems to have arisen because of a failure by the City Clerk's Office to place a vote on the master plan on the council's agenda, despite the PZC staff's written request for a council vote."
