Community based strategic planning


Bloomington. Tomorrow. Together. is a community based strategic planning initiative that 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
  • Action-planning priorities for implementation
  • Identifying measurements for success

This plan will be effective for five years and reviewed annually.

Community Cafés

Group at table

Community Cafés are small group conversations in an informal setting that give you the opportunity to share what you value about your community. You’ll also be able to describe your desires for the future and your top priorities for helping Bloomington continue to thrive.

The cafés will help draw out the hopes and desires that people have for the future, provide constructive avenues for expressing concerns and fears, identify challenges and barriers to progress, and celebrate the strengths that make Bloomington great.
