On May 4, 2021, Bloomington’s City Council, in face of overwhelming opposition of homeowners and renters, sided with faceless, uncounted, uncountable and unaccounted-for residents, and rubber-stamped the City’s proposal to upzone single family neighborhoods to allow multiplex apartment development. The Hamilton Administration will now do what it couldn’t do democratically in 2019 (via UDO amendment), through a pointlessly rushed online debate during a pandemic.
We tried to stop this. We failed. The objective now shifts to the 2023 election, and what we work for now is to remove the irresponsible elected officials who brought this about.
More than 670 people have signed our Resolution opposing the upzoning. (Real people, with names.)
