Housing and Neighborhoods

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 Housing and Neighborhoods:

Goal 5.1 Guide growth, change, and preservation of residential and business areas through planning policies that create and sustain neighborhood character and improve housing affordability.

Goal 5.2 Help all people have fair and equal access to housing in Bloomington, today and for the long-term.

Goal 5.3 Help meet current and projected regional housing needs of all economic and demographic groups by increasing Bloomington’s housing supply.

Goal 5.4 Stabilize neighborhoods by promoting a variety of homeownership and rental housing options, security of housing tenure, and opportunities for community interaction.

Attached is a visual aid with all the draft goals and policies for Housing and Neighborhoods

Together help shape goals and policies for Bloomington's Housing and Neighborhoods

  1. Mixed-income neighborhoods and community schools

    We need more mixed-income neighborhoods that also can support better economic integration of public schools. New report from HUD has some useful research to consider.
