Brief History

Following a 1998 Community Summit, a group of interested community leaders and residents began meeting regularly to discuss their common neighborhood concerns. With the support of a community organizer hired in 1998 by the Stamford Partnership to work with this group, the Waterside Coalition began its first organized efforts to effect neighborhood change and improvement. Redevelopment of Southwood Square brought new residents to this area, while both existing and new business owners have added their perspectives over time. Now, the Waterside Coalition's newsletter and monthly meetings afford the opportunity to learn about proposed business expansion, zoning issues, city projects and community services.

Purpose of the Waterside Coalition

The groups overall mission includes economic development, neighborhood revitalization and communications with the community.  Monitoring neighborhood blight, roadway conditions, and zoning infractions, and our park and neighborhood beautification program are some of the ways we raise the quality of life for residents and businesses in the Waterside.

  • ABBDS ( Amelia, Betts, Bonner, Durant, & Selleck Streets)

About Waterside

Waterside is distinguished from other Stamford neighborhoods and communities due to its rich natural resource, the Long Island Sound. Waterside is bound to the north by Interstate-95, to the West by the Greenwich town line, and to the East by the west branch of the Stamford Harbor.

Waterside is comprised of a mix of residential properties, office complexes, light manufacturing and commercial enterprises. The Waterside Coalition and local leaders are working hard to improve the community's image and enhance our quality of life.
