Hundreds of community members and City staff have been involved in bringing the City’s new five-year strategic plan, Bloomington. Tomorrow. Together., to life over the last few years. The planning process started in fall 2021 with community events during which residents and stakeholders shared their visions for the future of Bloomington. A core team of community members and City staff set the course for the plan. Action teams identified steps to take to achieve the goals. The work resulted in a mission: To cultivate an enduring and remarkable community where people want to be.

Working from this mission and the core values, strategic objectives and strategies created by the community members who took part in the planning process, City staff built created by the community-based planning groups, City staff built a measurable work plan in late 2022. The plan has three priority areas—a connected, welcoming community; a healthy community; and a community with equitable economic growth—along with nine desired outcomes and 27 initiatives.

Residents will soon be able to see the City’s progress toward its Bloomington. Tomorrow. Together. goals online. A data dashboard will be up and running this summer and City staff will begin entering quarterly data reports in July.
