In September 2020, Bloomington’s Planning & Transportation staff issued a proposed rezoning map that would have upzoned single family neighborhoods to allow multiplex apartment development. On February 11, 2021, the Administration issued a revised map that sharply reduced the scope of its mapping of dense development (R4) zoning. But the Mayor still intends to impose plex development on the City’s core neighborhoods through amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance.
The Hamilton Administration intends to do what it couldn’t do democratically through ordinance (via the UDO), by undemocratic means through mapping.
This needs to stop. You can help stop it.
