Bridgeport officials announced Sunday they will be cracking down on overcrowded housing in the city's North End, where residents have complained about loud parties and parking problems.
Mayor Joe Ganim saying he's created a task force to address the issue, which he says has resulted from too many college students living at the same address.
"We'll keep that diligence up and I want to thank the leadership of the City Council members in the North End to work with me and the residents to ensure that there's respect for residents and that students are not out of hand. That will be our call and we'll continue to push it as best we can," said Ganim.
He also said the city is working on a plan to reduce the number of people who can live in the same house, from four to three.
Sacred Heart University called the proposal "ill-conceived" and said it will harm property values.
