Academy Sports has asked the Bloomington Board of Zoning Appeals for an exception regarding the number of allowed parking spots. Based on the building’s square footage, local zoning laws would allow the company to have 178 parking spots, said Eric Greulich, senior zoning planner with the Bloomington Planning and Transportation Department. The city limits parking in part to reduce the amount of asphalt, which exacerbates storm water runoff and the heat island effect. Academy Sports said in filings with the city that it would like to use the existing 267 parking spaces, or about 44% more than allowed, because the limit imposed by the city would not allow the company “to properly serve all of its customers.” During peak hours and months — June, August, November and December — customers use between 85% and 100% of available parking and sometimes “park in the areas of the neighboring retailers,” the company said. ...

Sewer Problems (Sanitary Sewers)

3240 S Southern Oaks DR

Case Date:

Our toilet drains slowly. There is also a bubbling in the toilet when we run the water faucets in the powder room, the kitchen and upstairs. We noticed the problem with drainage on Monday August 28, and it has gotten worst since. There has been recent work on our easement to lay fiber lines. We are certain the issues for our toilet drainage are directly connected to the work done in the past few days. Please remedy our situation. We are not certain if we can run our showers and laundry due to the backup in our downstairs toilet.

Case Date:

I'm trying to find out who to contact pertaining to runoff from a new construction site into the nearby neighborhood waterway on the west side of Bloomington. My concern is that the construction barrier broke during the big storm in July, causing muddy clayish water to spill out into the road and backup the drains. That water has now made its way into the creek that flows thru Orchard Glen Co-op and meets up with the one along the Karst Farm Greenway. Due to the amount of mud, i believe someone needs to inspect it to make sure it's not a threat to the habitat or karst system there.

Utilities Yardwork

Case Date:

My neighborhood located between Sherwood Oaks church and Jackson Creek middle school is currently undergoing placement of fiberoptic cables. I strongly prefer to not have this done in my yard. My neighbors seem to feel the same. It's already been done recently with Smithville (last year). They nearly hit a gas line in my neighbor's yard two houses over in our cul de sac. They did hit a water line in the yard across the street from us in the cul de sac. They seem to dig without much regard for our approval and preferences as homeowners. Do we have rights as homeowners to decline placement of these fiberoptic cables? I appreciate any correspondence. Ryan Niehaus 2515 E Caray Ct Bloomington IN

Drainage or Runoff

3020 S Stratford DR

Case Date:

Follow-up on Report #185258 – Assistance needed, please forward to Ms. Elizabeth Carter. Dear Ms. Carter, Thank you for your prompt response to case #185258. We seek your continued guidance regarding the issue outlined in the initial message. The eroded drainage-way section lies outside our rental property's limits. After discussions with all relevant property owners (1912 E Wexley Rd, 1920 E Wexley Rd and 3020 Stratford Dr), we've concluded that this affected section of the drainage-way, causing flooding, might not be on our properties. This is reinforced by utility bollards adjacent to the eroded zone, demarcated by an extra fence. Suspicions arise from recently installed storm drain pipes on E Wexley, which appear to now funnel excessive water into this drainage-way, exacerbating erosion on both sides and ultimately flooding our properties. We kindly request the City of Bloomington's experts to determine ownership of the eroded section accurately and provide expert advice, ideally from an engineer, on addressing the heightened drainage flow, which is beyond our control. My apologies for the earlier property manager's email address error. The correct contact details are as follows: Ms. Janet Jin (812-325-9093, cjcornerstone.mgt@gmail.com). Your assistance in this pressing matter is greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Gergo Szanda
