Currently, the city is engaged in an extensive renovation plan for the Bridgeport Landing area. A major zero-match grant has been secured with the assistance of Alabama Tombigbee Regional Commission which will make this three year project possible. Creswell has played an essential role in bringing partners together in the planning and fundraising processes.
