To that end, Appropriation Ordinance 20-03 will allow the City to invest more than $1,000,000 on sustainable quality of life initiatives in Bloomington through green investments, improved mobility options, investments in our local food economy, grants for the arts, and with initiatives that seek to improve digital equity. The Ordinance also sets aside more than $500,000 in direct support to grow jobs, and dedicates additional funds to support affordable home ownership for working families.
