City Charter and Code of Ordinances

The City of Bloomington's Code of Ordinances contains local laws which, along with state and federal laws and regulations, shape our city and its services to keep residents safe, maintain property values, and govern private activities within the city's boundaries in a manner that balances the protection of individual rights with the promotion of the public health, safety and welfare.

Recent changes

The process of reviewing and incorporated changes to the City Code is called "codification." Because this process must be undertaken for each change, recent changes to the code are not incorporated immediately. The process of codification may take several weeks. After Council-approved changes are incorporated into the official code document at the City Clerk's office, the online representation of the Code is updated. Because of this time lag, the City Clerk's Office provides a list of recently approved, but not yet codified, changes below.

The City Clerk's Office and Web staff will make every effort to post such changes below, within three business days of Council action. You may contact the City Clerk's Office with any questions.

New versions of the City Code will be posted as the code is updated. Use the City's E-Subscribe service to receive notifications when updates are made.
