(BLOOMINGTON) – City Council President Dave Rollo Announces the Deadlines and Schedule for Further Deliberation by the City Council on Resolution 19-01: To Adopt the City’s Transportation Plan as an Amendment to the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
As requested by the City Council earlier this month, Council President Rollo is announcing the deadlines and schedule for further deliberations on Resolution 19-01 (Adopting the City’s Transportation Plan).
As stated by Council President Rollo, “The reason for the delay was to give the members of the Council and public more time to understand what was being proposed and how it would affect the community. Members of the public are invited to use this time to become more informed about the Transportation Plan and offer amendments for sponsorship by Council members.”
The Transportation Plan affects the City’s right-of-ways and is intended to be a multi-modal plan that is part of the Comprehensive Plan and provides a long-term vision for the City’s future. More on the Transportation Plan can be found at https://bloomington.in.gov/council/plan-schedule.
