The Bloomington Zoning Ordinance, last amended in 2006, establishes parameters for the use and design of property throughout the City of Bloomington.
On August 24, 2015, the City adopted its award-winning Comprehensive Plan, the twenty-year vision for the community. The plan, while advisory in nature, is implemented by adopting zoning and other ordinances that conform to its vision.
In 2016, the City engaged the professional services of planning firm Houseal Lavigne & Associates to analyze the Bloomington Zoning Ordinance, Chapter 44 of the City Code, and to provide recommendations for updating the ordinance so that it aligns with the goals of the Comprehensive Plan. City staff and John Houseal of Houseal Lavigne & Associates will host two Open Houses on October 10 to discuss this topic with the public and hear feedback. The Open House to be held from 2-4 pm on October 10 will focus on Downtown. The Open House to be held from 4-6 pm on October 10 will be more general in nature. The public is welcome at both.
