Planning for Mitigation and Resiliency Projects

Tranche One
Branford, Creating Coastal Resilience - $150,000

This plan seeks to review creative ideas for coastal adaption to climate change; create community coastal resilience plans in Branford, Madison, and Milford with contributions from residents and businesses that can be implemented at the local level.

Final Report:

Bridgeport, Marina Village Resiliency - $100,000

The Department of Housing looks forward to working with the Rebuild by Design Bridgeport Initiative and incorporating this initial Marina Village proposal for planning and infrastructure into the overall revitalization plan.

Shoreline Shellfish, LLC, Living & Artificial Reef: Creation & Restoration - $415,000

This plan is to provide for the environmentally safe handling of sapropel by designing, fabricating and testing of venture vacuum systems in Guilford. Geotextile tubes may be used to create manufactured yet natural barriers making it possible to establish oyster reefs that will cut down on wave action created during hurricanes and large storms and increase shoreline resiliency.


New Haven, Bulkhead Engineering and Design - $221,573.45

The plan is to create a pedestrian riverfront walkway that will also provide protection to the inland industrial, commercial and residential areas; stabilize the shoreline; and reduce the possibility of contaminants being washed into the Quinnipiac River and Long Island Sound.

New Haven, Long Wharf Flood Protection - $400,000

This grant will provide for planning, designing and permitting for flood mitigation and shoreline protection measures for the areas northwest of Long Wharf Drive to Union Avenue, where there is frequent flooding due to openings connecting Long Wharf Drive to Canal Dock Drive.

Final Report:

New Haven, Mill River Shoreline Analysis - $180,395

This study will make it possible to analyze three potential flood mitigation strategies and decide which will be the most effective.
