The Bloomington Plan Commission has approved the construction of a new apartment complex on the city’s south side; Indiana University Bloomington has already begun to receive applications for
its new engineering programs; The Monroe County Solid Waste Management District has appointed a new head of operations; In other District news, at that same meeting County Plan Commissioner Scott Wells accused the District Board of effectively killing plans for a Materials Recovery Facility, or Murf.
Earlier this month, Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan announced the city had reached a deal with a company to develop about half of what the city calls The Trades District. The company, Flaherty and Collins, has agreed to develop a six-acre piece of land just east of Rogers Street and south of 11th Street. The city currently owns the land, which has long been reserved for a certified technology park. The city plans to give the land to Flaherty and Collins. For more on the deal, WFHB assistant news director David Murphy spoke with the director of Bloomington’s economic and sustainable development department, Danise Alano-Martin. We bring you that conversation now for today’s WFHB community report.
