A Vision For The Future

A Vision For The Future

The City of Bloomington Comprehensive Plan Vision and Values document is now available. This document, “A Vision for the Future” is a compilation of the common themes that emerged from careful analysis of over 8,000 comments received from public outreach and the Bring It On Bloomington Community Survey. These themes were organized into chapters for use in the next step of the planning process.

The Vision statement in each chapter is a reflection of the core values and a desired future envisioned by respondents on that subject. Each Vision statement has several guiding themes based on the context within each chapter. These guiding themes will help the working groups to take your vision a step closer to reality by framing the goals, objectives and actionable items for the comprehensive plan.

City of Bloomington Comprehensive Plan 2015

City of Bloomington Comprehensive Plan 2015

The City of Bloomington Comprehensive Plan document is now available!
It reflects the City’s policy intent with respect to many issues that confront Bloomington, including built, fiscal, social, environment and economic conditions. This plan sets forth a series of goals to be achieved over the next twenty years, defines objectives to be reached in support of the goals, and recommends actions by the City, and its regional partners, to reach the objectives.

The Bloomington comprehensive planning process was 18 months long and was conducted in three phases. The outreach was extensive and included members of the community whose voices are typically not heard. The community involvement was further substantiated by involving many interested members of the community in the working groups.
