BRHA Meeting on 340-344 Brewster Street

On behalf of The Black Rock Historic Preservation Association we are sharing this important message and invitation with our BRHA Members and Black Rock Neighbors:
A chapter in the struggle to restore the Cotswold Cottage style house at the corner of Grovers and Brewster is about to close. The Black Rock Historic Preservation Association brought suit against the Bridgeport Historic District Commission after the Commission granted a Certificate of Appropriateness for three duplexes with detached garages in the back of the property -- plus a driveway through the garage. Our date in Superior Court is Friday, May 6, and we are expecting to reverse the Commission's ruling! Join us at the Black Rock Library on Thursday April 28th from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.

WHAT IS NEXT FOR THE 340 - 344 BREWSTER STREET PROPERTY?
• Hear why the Bridgeport Historic District Commission (HDC) gave permission after 4 previous denials
• Understand the basis of our lawsuit
• WHAT'S NEXT? How can we maintain the integrity of a historic district designation?
• How can we encourage a sale to a private owner?

COME SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS/IDEAS!

I grew up in Black Rock, and am hoping to return to live there again very soon. I would like to become involved in Black Rock associations, especially any organization that intends to preserve and improve Black Rock. I am within commuting distance now, so I could attend some important functions to be an active member depending on my personal work commitments.
