Lyndale Avenue Retrofit

The Plan

The Lyndale Avenue Retrofit Plan is available on the project documents page.

Project Information

The City hired Stantec Consulting Services, Inc. to work with us to define a clear vision and specific steps the City can take to enhance the function, vitality, and appearance of Lyndale Avenue and attract reinvestment to this aging corridor. Rooted in solid economic market analysis, the suburban retrofit strategy will provide clear and realistic implementation guidance, ultimately creating economic, social, and environmental value for Lyndale Avenue and the community.

The goal is to transform Lyndale Avenue into a thriving, walkable, mixed-use corridor that serves as an amenity to attract new, and retain existing, residents and businesses. This change won’t happen overnight. While the study will identify actions that can be implemented in the near-term, transformation will take time and will be influenced by evolving market conditions.

Ultimately, success depends on the active participation of area businesses and residents in defining the future vision for Lyndale and their ongoing support for implementing the recommended strategies.

A Vision for Lyndale Avenue

Lyndale Avenue is a dynamic, walkable boulevard that connects a series of vibrant and distinctive neighborhoods along one, cohesive corridor. It is the cultural heart of the community, with a diverse population and interests that embrace equitable and safe neighborhoods for all. The corridor includes a series of destinations to live, dine, play, and work—preserving Bloomington’s unique history, while providing a framework to build new and exciting experiences. Public gathering places are conveniently accessible and reinforced with a range of restaurant and shopping destinations. Opportunities to preserve and enhance the environment are incorporated into future growth, creating a place where nature meets business.
