Safety Week Events to Run April 1-5: City, Residents to Collaborate Over Tacos, Ice Cream, Snacks

Bloomington, Ind. - The City of Bloomington announced today that Safety Week will run April 1-5, in conjunction with the ongoing Safe Streets and Roads for All initiative. Safety Week features a series of events designed to gather resident feedback, promote awareness of safety, and foster community collaboration toward creating safer streets for everyone. 

The highlights of Safety Week will be three evening social events open to the public, offering free food, prizes, and activities for participants of all ages. “We’re excited to meet with members of the community to talk about how we can make Bloomington an even better, safer place to get around on foot, bike, car, bus, and any other mode of transportation,” said Ryan Robling, Planning Services Manager. “These will be fun events, and we hope community members will stop by with friends or family to collaborate with us and enjoy some tacos, ice cream, and snacks.”

The schedule for the evening socials is:

  • Taco ‘Bout Safety: Tuesday, April 2nd, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Waldron Hill Buskirk Park  (free tacos for participants)
  • Scoops & Spokes: Wednesday, April 3rd, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Chocolate Moose  (free ice cream for participants)
  • Snacks & Trivia: Thursday, April 4th, 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Friendly Beasts Cider Company (free snacks for participants)

In addition to the evening slate of events, City staff and consultants from Toole Design Group will be reaching out to every corner of the community by hosting events such as school workshops, presentations, and pop-up booths to provide activities, surveys, and information. “We really want to learn from the public which locations feel comfortable or uncomfortable while walking, biking, driving, and using any other mode of transportation on City roadways,” said Robling. “Safety Week underscores the City's commitment to prioritizing the safety and well-being of all roadway users.”
