Zoning Ordinance Update Project

The City of Bloomington is undergoing a multi-year effort to update its Zoning Ordinance and related City Code provisions. The current Zoning Ordinance was largely written in the 1950s and has, until recently, never been comprehensively updated. The overall project is divided into many smaller subprojects.  Each year, the City completes several subprojects.  As the update occurs, text is transitioned from Chapter 19 to Chapter 21 of the City Code.

The following projects are underway at this time:

Recreational Vehicle Ordinance update

As part of the 2018 Planning Commission Work Plan, the City will consider amendments to recreational vehicle storage standards and approval processes.  Public Hearings for the ordinance are anticipated for September 13th before the Planning Commission and October 15th before the City Council. 

Industrial Standards Ordinance

As part of the 2018 Planning Commission Work Plan, the City will consider amendments to industrial standards.  Public Hearings for the ordinance are anticipated for October 25th before the Planning Commission and November 19th before the City Council.  Once a draft of the ordinance is finalized, a link for it will be added here.

2018 Miscellaneous Issues Ordinance

Typically once a year, as part of the 2018 Planning Commission Work Plan, the City will consider amendments to a number of miscellaneous issues that by themselves do not warrant consideration for ordinance amendments.  Public Hearings for the ordinance are anticipated for October 25th before the Planning Commission and November 19th before the City Council.  Once a draft of the ordinance is finalized, a link for it will be added here. 

The following projects have been completed:
