The City of Bloomington conducts parking studies as part of the on-going evaluation and management of the parking system.  Past reports are available for review.  These studies generally are focused within and around the Downtown area.  Studies provide findings and recommendations for the City to consider.  Additionally, the Parking Commission provides oversight and plays an advisory role to the City Council on related parking issues.

Currently the City is in the process of conducting another parking study as part of the on-going and long-term evaluation and management of the parking system.  The public is invited to give input about the City’s existing parking infrastructure as part of the Parking Study conducted by DESMAN at an event on Wednesday, December 6, and Thursday, December 7, at City Hall (401 N. Morton) from 12:30-1:15 p.m.

Various downtown stakeholders, including business owners, tourism industry, government, retail, restaurants, developers, and nonprofit organizations are also invited to share input on December 6.  The City’s Planning & Transportation Department has created the following schedule to address concerns unique to different organizations:
