Future Uncertain in Matlock Heights Neighborhood
This Wednesday the Bloomington City Council is scheduled to vote on whether to restrict future development in a neighborhood on the north side of the city. Many residents of the Matlock Heights neighborhood have asked for designation as a conservation district, which would probably keep out new student-oriented apartments or certain commercial businesses. The process has been underway since 2010 and it has support from many residents and most of the Council. But a legal issue that has come to light in recent months raises questions about the future of the district. WFHB Assistant News Director Joe Crawford brings us that story for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
Cyrilla Helm of the Foundation for the Monroe County Community Schools talks about the foundation’s mission as well as upcoming volunteer programs and fundraising events, including Drop the Puck on March 1st, 2014.
