City of Bloomington Bicentennial Bonds video update

BLOOMINGTON – In today’s video update, Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton discusses the Bicentennial Bonds with Operations and Development Division Director Tim Street for Bloomington Parks and Recreation. 

In 2018, the City commemorated its two-hundred-year anniversary with $10 million Bicentennial Bond projects. The bonds have continued to fund projects deepening the city’s commitment to an integrated, sustainable multi-modal transportation system, extending trail connectivity, increasing the tree inventory, animating downtown alleyways, and establishing entryways to the city.  

Projects included $800,000 to plant trees along streets and in public rights-of-way across the city.
