The Bloomington Redevelopment Commission and City administrators have been in conversation the past few weeks over the design of Bloomington’s Certified Tech Park. In their meeting August 1st, Commission members were asked by city administrators to approve a contract with the urban design firm Anderson Bohlander to design and engineer streets and sidewalks that would subdivide the Tech Park for development. The Commission declined, with members saying it didn’t mesh with the park’s master plan. In the Commission’s work session last week, Mayor John Hamilton pressed for movement on the tech park project, telling commission members “people are ready to invest”; and said delaying design and engineering work would deter that investment.
The Bloomington Redevelopment Commission meeting began today at 5pm in the McCloskey conference room in City Hall. Information about the tech park’s master plan can be found at the City’s website.
