Meetings Planned to Gather Feedback on R-3B Analysis

Post Date:07/16/2019 4:06 PM

The City of Bloomington is planning two meetings for different stakeholder groups to gather feedback for an analysis of properties zoned R-3B, High Density Multifamily Zoning District, and located adjacent to Downtown. Houseal Lavigne Associates, the firm that recently assisted the City with major revisions to its zoning ordinance, will be onsite to conduct the meetings:


Focus Group for Regeneration Stakeholders (Westside)

Tuesday, July 23

12-1:30 pm

Mid Central Community Action

Large Conference Room

1301 W. Washington St.

Bloomington, IL 61701

Located along the Gold Bus Transit line


Focus Group for Preservation Stakeholders (Eastside)

Tuesday, July 23

3-4:30 pm

Bloomington Public Library

Community Room

205 E. Olive St.

Bloomington, IL 61701

A short walk from the Purple Transit stops and the Downtown Front Street Transfer Center


This analysis stems from resident questions and concerns expressed during the March 11, 2019 adoption of the City’s zoning ordinance. The R-3B zoning district allows for a density of up to 70 dwelling units per acre as well as a variety of housing types, including single-family homes, townhomes, duplexes, and apartments. The district also allows some retail and service uses like a pharmacy, salon, or laundry mat with a special use permit. The gathering of feedback is the first part of a multistep process to access the regulations, which is anticipated to last the next several months.
