Named in honor of the iconic Chicago city planner and architect Daniel Burnham, the annual award recognizes a comprehensive plan that advances the art and science of planning.

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.
