Below is information on the draft October 2020 proposal. 

The Planning and Transportation Department is beginning the final step in the update to the Unified Development Ordinance and Zoning Map. The process seeks to further align the land use regulations of the City with the goals and values of the Comprehensive Plan. The framework created by the Comprehensive Plan supports regulations that increase equity and quality of life; encourage sustainable and resilient development; and address existing challenges faced by Bloomington residents including a lack of housing supply and diversity.

The Department has prepared a public outreach draft map and text amendments and is seeking comment and questions related to the drafts. This webpage is intended to serve two purposes. It is to provide information to the public related to the map draft and text amendments and to provide responses to questions raised during public outreach. It is also intended to provide a venue for submitting feedback.
