State Rep. Jack Hennessy will host a neighborhood forum on Thursday, 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the North Branch Library, 3455 Madison Avenue. From Hennessy:
The forum was to originally focus on constituent complaints about rowdy college student renters affecting the quality of life in their neighborhoods, but officials from Sacred Heart University have said they will be unable to attend due to the installation ceremony of Frank J Caggiano as Bishop of the Diocese of Bridgeport. The forum will instead give residents the opportunity to discuss quality of life and environmental issues with state and city officials. The Ox Brook flood control project will also be a topic.
“This is not a political event,” said Rep. Jack Hennessy (D-Bridgeport). “It is a forum to discuss important public health and quality of life issues that impact our neighborhoods. It will take a team effort, but if we keep the city’s feet to the fire on things like the Ox Brook flood control project, we will see results.”
The Bridgeport Police Department, Mayor, City Council members, Public Facilities, Zoning Enforcement and Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental protection have been invited to attend.
