Bridgeport, WV is a local suburb community that has excellent schools, business opportunities as well as the best public schools in WV. Their ratings for elementary, middle and high school is 10+ in many different rating scores. Besides the school, the city is very active and have numerous volunteering and contributing activities for local community. The Bridgeport PD is excellent in their response, service and community involvement. They also have a volunteer in police service program to encourage citizens to be a part of the law enforcement community and encourage connections as well as communications with the general public. Besides that, the UHC hospital that used to be in Clarksburg is now in Bridgeport WV and that makes the local medical needs more accessible for the people. The city itself has a website and the calendar presents various activities happening within the local community. A great city to live and raise a family in.
Review Bridgeport
My area is very uncharacteristic of the rest of West Virginia as it is more affluent than most of the state. Nevertheless, our area has a severe drug issue spilling over from the neighboring community that is struggling. Our community's mayor was convicted of selling and distributing opiates from his local pharmacy in multiple states. The local government has improved after his removal and multiple improvements to infrastructure are occurring, and our local high school is consistently ranked and awarded state honors in sports and academics. Also the FBI located their main fingerprinting facility to our area producing several jobs and several other jobs are being created by new businesses. Finally, my town was ranked one of the best small towns in the United States.
I have been living in Bridgeport for almost 2 years. I love it. It is a very clean city. The residents keep their property very neat and orderly. I am close to shopping, ,entertainment, church, work, etc. Everything is literally less than a five minute drive. The only complaint I have is the traffic around here is getting much worse. This is uncommon for this area. There is usually not a lot of traffic congestion.
