The City of Bloomington is planning two meetings for different stakeholder groups to gather feedback on potential updates to the City’s sign code. The sign code regulates the number, size, and location of signs in the City of Bloomington. It protects property values, balances public interests and private investments, reduces distractions and obstructions, and promotes economic development. Houseal Lavigne Associates, the firm that recently assisted the City with major revisions to its zoning ordinance, will be onsite to conduct the meetings:

Potential updates to the code include aligning the code with the goals of the City’s Comprehensive Plan and federal court decisions. Bloomington may wish to amend regulations that encourage a scale and placement of signs that complement the Downtown character and other pedestrian heavy corridors. The gathering of feedback is the first part of a multistep process, which is anticipated to last the next several months.
