City Council Revises Density, Height Provisions In Master Plan


Bloomington city leaders are moving closer to creating a new Comprehensive Master Plan. The wide reaching city planning document helps guide officials as they create future city policy.

City Council members approved amendments about building height and neighborhood density at Wednesday night’s meeting.

One amendment removes language from the document that encourages taller developments in the city’s downtown. Another amendment prevents high density developments in the older, single family neighborhoods near the city’s urban core.

The master plan follows the Growth Policies Plan, a similar guide set out by city officials that was last updated in 2002.

The new, more thorough master plan will aim to give city administrators a better understanding of desired goals.
