Blooming Neighborhoods 2021




Celebrating Bloomington's Neighborhoods in 2020

Happy National Good Neighbor Day!

September 28, 2020


Blooming Neighborhoods Video

The Blooming Neighborhoods celebration has been an annual Bloomington tradition for over 20 years. This year we are unable to celebrate in person, so HAND has produced a video to commemorate Bloomington's neighborhood associations. Check it out!



Bloomington Neighborhood Association Logo Contest Winners




Covenanter and Fritz Terrace neighborhood associations each submitted a logo for the HAND Logo Contest. Since these were the only entries, it was decided that HAND would declare them co-winners. Their logos were beautiful, thoughtful, and dynamic, and each evokes the vibe of their respective neighborhoods. Below are their logos, along with their descriptions of how the logos represents them. 


Fritz Terrace logo
The tree represents that we are an older, already established neighborhood full of big, beautiful, mature trees and yards covered in green trees/bushes/flowers/gardens, etc.

The slogan and the child swinging represent that our neighborhood is affordable for families, particularly families looking to buy their first home.

The colored hands represent that our neighbors respect and encourage diversity, which is evident you when you drive around our neighborhood and see yard signs such as "No matter where you are from, we're glad you're our neighbor" and "In this house we believe black lives matter, women's rights are human rights, no human is illegal, science is real, love is love, kindness is everything." 
Covenanter logo
The Covenanter Neighborhood Association was designated an official entity in October 2018.  Like the neighborhood, the Association strives to build a community of people who will work in unison to create a welcoming, friendly, active lifestyle in, around and throughout the tree lined streets and 300 plus residences surrounding the Covenanter Drive corridor.


























Blue Ridge Neighborhood Association contributes to Blooming Neighborhoods

Linda and Paul Kern of Blue Ridge neighborhood have taken a deep dive into the history of their neighborhood, once known as Blue Ridge Estates. They kindly shared with HAND the first book in the mini-series they've compiled. You can read all about it here.
