The City of Bloomington worked with consulting firm Toole Design Group to develop a multimodal transportation plan. The plan will be used to help prioritize transportation projects, to determine right-of-way widths, and to shape transportation in our community for years to come. 

Council Amendments + Next Steps

The Transportation Plan was reviewed by the Common Council during a series of meetings. At their meeting on May 22, 2019, the Council amended and adopted the Transportation Plan. Before the amended version of the Plan can be fully adopted, it must be reviewed, again, by the Plan Commission and then certified. The Plan Commission will review Council's amendments at their regular meeting on Monday, July 8, 2019, at 5:30pm in City Hall, Council Chambers. More information and a packet, when available, can be found on the Plan Commission website. The Council issued a report to the Plan Commission, including all adopted amendments, which can be accessed here. An updated, final version of the Transportation Plan that incorporates all amendments from Council will be posted as soon as possible.   

The approved Transportation Plan includes all of the amendments adopted by the Common Council. The lasted version was posted on July 10, 2019. The appendices are available here and were posted on July 8, 2019.  

The Plan Commission reviewed, amended, and issued a positive recommendation of the Transportation Plan at their Special Hearing on November 8, 2018. 
   

Summary of Process: January to July 2018 

Toole Design Consultants visited Bloomington in January 2018. They hosted two public meetings, held meetings with stakeholders, and hosted open studio hours. The consultants developed a Survey and Wiki Map that was posted online and approximately 250 people provided input via the survey and/or the mapping tool. The links below provide the pdf presentation from each of the two public meetings. Additionally, the meetings can be viewed on CATS with the link below. 

Since January, the consultants compiled and reviewed all the input from the community. They read and referenced the Comprehensive Plan as it defines the vision and goals for transportation in Bloomington. The consultants also reviewed available data including traffic counts on many streets throughout the community.They took this information and created a draft plan.
