RICH HISTORY, BRIGHT FUTURE

A reimagined downtown Bloomington experience.

Why the Streetscape project?

Investing in the downtown streetscape project is prudent and well-timed with the potential return that we here in Bloomington could derive from the project’s intentional, strategic, forward-looking planning. The return on our investment has strong potential to come in the form of additional economic activity from both private and public sectors.

  • Create/Activate Public Spaces
  • Improve Walkability + Accessibility
  • Bridge Downtown Core to the Surrounding Neighborhoods
  • Enhance the Streetscape Aesthetic
