Let Council members know how you feel about the upzoning. Six members of the Council represent geographic districts — the member representing your district is the one most accountable to you.

There also are three At-Large members of the Council, who are accountable to everyone in Bloomington.
Council members hold constituent meetings. You’re welcome to attend (especially those of your own district rep and the At-Large members) and make your feelings known. Email them directly as well.
You also can (and should) express yourself in a Letter to the Editor. Bloomington’s newspaper of record (despite its recent, sad decline) is the Herald-Times. Follow this link to submit a letter (up to 200 words).
