The City of Bloomington is seeking feedback on several projects with its online engagement tool, Let’s Talk Bloomington, at blm.mn/letstalk. Register to join in the conversation. Here are two projects now posted:
Racial equity strategic planning
The racial equity strategic planning committee is charged with developing a shared vision and identifying collaborative policy and operational strategies to achieve the City’s racial equity goals. In keeping with the City’s commitment to authentically engage underrepresented communities in the governing process, the committee will prioritize the voices of those directly impacted by racial disparities. The committee will build upon input shared by the community to develop a final report that City Council and its partners can implement. Share your experience or ask a question at blm.mn/letstalk.
Retailer input on tobacco ordinance
Community Development staff are looking for input on a possible incentive program for the tobacco ordinance adopted by the Bloomington City Council on April 26, 2021. This survey is for Bloomington tobacco retailers to weigh in on what might encourage them to turn in their tobacco license early. Retailers can complete the survey and find out more at letstalk.bloomingtonmn.gov/tobacco-ordinances
