Updated on December 1, 2021

About 150 people attended virtual and live events held in October and November to share their visions for Bloomington’s future. This is a foundational part of the Bloomington. Tomorrow. Together. strategic planning process. At these events, people were able to share what they value about the places they live, work and spend time. More than 100 people also provided input on the café questions via online forums. A full report of the feedback received at the events is available online at

The City also received nearly 160 applications from residents who were interested in serving on the core planning, action and measurement teams that will help propel the strategic planning process. The core planning team held a retreat on December 2 – 4 to work on a draft of the strategic plan. Now, the action and measurement teams will work out the details of the plan during the months of January and February 2022. 

Bloomington. Tomorrow. Together. is the City’s most collaborative strategic planning effort to date. The process provides opportunities for residents to partner with the City to help design a plan for Bloomington’s future. City representatives are working in partnership with members of the community at every stage of the process. For more information, visit
