Programs

Transportation

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a listing of all projects expected to be implemented using federal aid during the next three-year period. The TIP is divided into programs funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

Land Use + Regional Growth

In order to grow smarter we must understand how land use patterns affect our quality of life. Our land use and growth management program seeks to improve connections between the places people want to be.

Economic Development

The Greater Bridgeport planning region has been combined with the South West Connecticut planning region to form the One Coast Economic Development District (EDD). The goals are to stimulate economic growth, job creation and retention, and foster a cooperative economic environment across the entire area that establishes stronger alliances for mutual benefit.

Environment + Sustainability

MetroCog has established a Conservation Committee to coordinate, administer and undertake planning activities deemed necessary and appropriate to address critical environmental and conservation issues, concerns and problems facing the member communities of the Greater Bridgeport Planning Region.

Public Safety

Disasters and emergencies can happen without notice. MetroCog works with first responders to plan for a coordinated response.
