Authored on

The City of Bloomington Port Authority is developing a five-year economic development action plan to guide its work as it expands from working exclusively in the South Loop to offering economic development programs and assistance citywide.

The plan’s steering committee, which meets monthly, has 13 members, including representatives from Bloomington’s business community and regional economic development partners.

Extensive roundtables and interviews conducted by the Port Authority team and consultants from TIP Strategies over the past five months have resulted in the first draft of the plan’s strategies.

The next step is creating the action plan. Consultants from TIP Strategies will meet with the steering committee for a  workshop in late June to review and refine the plan’s strategies and finalize a vision and guiding principles for the project.
