Request for Information: Unified Development Ordinance Updates

The City of Bloomington (the City) is issuing a Request for Information (RFI) to select a consultant (or team of consultants) to assist in the development and adoption of updates to the City’s Unified Development Ordinance (the UDO). The UDO is the primary source of land use regulations for the City of Bloomington, including both zoning and subdivision control ordinances. The updated UDO is expected to be complimentary to the soon to be completed Bloomington Comprehensive Plan. The City anticipates that the new UDO will express a progressive vision that promotes thoughtful growth and protects the health, safety, and welfare of the community. Interested parties must submit proposals electronically by Friday, July 14, at 4:00 PM local time (EST).
