City Council working on community-based strategic planning

Authored on
Bloomington Briefing Published August 4, 2021

Community-based strategic planning connects City representatives and residents to shape the future of Bloomington. City representatives will work with community members at every stage of the process:

  • Understanding who and what Bloomington is.
  • Forming a unifying mission statement and strategic objectives.
  • Developing action-planning priorities for implementation.
  • Identifying measurements for success.

The core planning team will consist of City representatives and community members. The City is hosting community cafe events in October for residents to share what they see in Bloomington’s future. There will be several community cafe sessions in October. Dates, times and locations of these sessions will be posted online at

This plan will be effective for five years and reviewed annually. For more information, visit and to share your ideasat
