A draft comprehensive plan for Bloomington is in development. Based on past public input and processes the time has come to reengage the community to refine topic areas (chapters) and their respective goals and policies. These will be used to help guide Bloomington towards 2040. The following are goals for Environment:
Goal 3.1 Preserve our open space, natural and urban habitats, and protect the ecosystems and natural
resources that are the foundations of our environment.
Goal 3.2 Conserve water resources and protect water quality to support our natural environment, public

Goal 3.3 Protect life, ecosystems and property from natural and man-made hazards.
