Mayor William Finch, Bridgeport, Connecticut
2013
FinchAs a former state senator and now mayor of Connecticut's largest city, William Finch has embodied the principles of landscape architecture and healthy communities. He has enhanced two major parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, created new parks from former brownfield sites, and prepared a citywide master plan that places as much emphasis on small neighborhood parks in the city's poorest communities as it does on its major destination and historic parks. Mayor Finch also initiated the BGreen Bridgeport program, which promotes environmental and social responsibility for the city.
