City of Bloomington, Indiana

About us

Established in 1971 by municipal ordinance, the Bloomington Environmental Commission (EC) is an advisory body composed of Bloomington citizens appointed by the Mayor and Common Council.

Mission

The mission of the Environmental Commission is to advise the City of Bloomington on how its actions and policies may preserve and enhance the quality of Bloomington's environment, including the life-supporting processes that natural ecological systems provide to humans and other organisms.

The EC actively participates in the city planning process; researches and reports on environmental topics; develops educational outreach activities and materials; responds to inquiries from residents; and coordinates with other municipal boards and commissions and other organizations on issues of mutual interest.

Statutory Authority: BMC 2.12.050

The EC is proud to announce the publication of the Bloomington Environmental Action Plan (BEAP), a strategic plan that articulates how the City can mitigate climate change and improve the quality of life for citizens. More specifically, the Plan details how Bloomington can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 17% below 2014 levels by 2020. Download the Plan.

Releases of toxic substances in Bloomington are described in the 2011 Toxics Report (PDF 1.92 MB) and in the accompanying appendix of oversized tables.
