Bloomington’s growing population means the city’s landscape is constantly changing. Where will people live? Where will they work and how will the city keep its college town charm? Any of those questions can create a divisive debate. Coming up how a comprehensive plan that’s in development will provide a road map for land use and development in the city.

Plus the governor delivered his first state of the state address. But he’s drawing criticism from both parties – not for something he said, but for what he didn’t say. We’ll explain coming up.

Indiana has a colorful tattoo history including Navy sailors, bikers, prison inmates… and of course, Roy Boy Cooper. Celebrities were among those who flocked to Gary Indiana to be tattooed even during a time when it was illegal. Coming up we tour an exhibit on the state’s tattooing legacy.

Those stories plus the latest headlines from across the state right now on Indiana Newsdesk.
