Mayor Hamilton to Announce Downtown Safety and Civility Efforts

Bloomington, Ind. - On Wednesday, August 10 at 10:30 a.m. in front of the Monroe County Public Library, 303 East Kirkwood Avenue, Mayor John Hamilton will announce efforts already in place and plans for the future to make Bloomington, especially the downtown area, a safer, more compassionate, just and welcoming place.

Several City of Bloomington departments including the Community and Family Resources Department, Bloomington Police Department and Parks and Recreation Department are working with the Community Justice and Mediation Center through The Downtown Safety and Civility Project to protect the atmosphere of the downtown area for all residents and visitors. The desired goal is to ensure the community is a place of safety and civility, offering justice and opportunity for all residents.

Mayor Hamilton will announce specific actions being taken immediately while awaiting a report from The Downtown Safety and Civility Project, expected in January of 2017.
