The City of Bloomington Planning Department is holding a workshop on September 12th.
This workshop will help with gathering public input on community goals for ImagineBloomington to help update the Growth Policies Plan.
Senior Long Range Planner, Nate Nickel gave us some background on the Growth Policies Plan.
“Growth Policies Plan is the city’s comprehensive plan and was adopted in 2002. Since it’s been over 10 years, we are undertaking the process to update our GPP. This is an opportunity for the public to tell us what they want to see in the future and help guide us in the future,” Nickel said.
The three topics that will be discussed at the workshop include Economic and Sustainable Development, Government Services and Transportation. During the workshop participants will be able to offer their input and vote on one of their goals for ImagineBloomington.
“What we’ll do after is work closely with our ImagineBloomington committee and start editing our draft goals and moving ahead with the planning process. We think this will go up until 2015 and there will definitely be more opportunities to provide input,” Nickel said.
The workshop will take place on September 12th from 6 to 7 p.m. It will be held at the Monroe County Public Library in room 1C.
