Moving Bloomington Forward logo

Bloomington is a great place to live, work, and have fun. As the community grows, investments are being made in amenities that bring people together and improve quality of life. 

Two years of resident input helped the City develop the long-term Bloomington Forward investment plan to support three major community projects for better health, wellness, athletics and recreation. In November 2023, Bloomington voters approved a half-percent local sales tax to finance $155 million in bonds to pay for modernization of Bloomington Ice Garden, a new Community Health and Wellness Center to replace Creekside Community Center and the Bloomington Public Health building, and restoration and improvements in the Nine Mile Creek corridor and Central/Moir Park. 

The Bloomington Ice Garden Modernization plan includes major mechanical and roof upgrades, Rink 3 converted to NHL size, indoor training area, upgrades to ticketing, security, office, ADA accessibility and concessions, renovated locker rooms and restrooms.
