Planning Staff To Request Council Resolution To Accept Transportation Demand Management Plan

(BLOOMINGTON) – The City of Bloomington Planning and Transportation Department will present a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan to the Bloomington Common Council for its consideration on Wednesday, at 6:30 p.m.

City staff working with transportation consultants Wells + Associates developed the advisory plan over the last twelve months, focusing on various strategies to reduce single-occupancy vehicle use within the downtown.

The plan incorporates input from a residential travel survey, a downtown employee transportation survey, and a series of stakeholder meetings.

The presentation will be made by Beth Rosenbarger, Planning Services Manager, City of Bloomington, Planning, and Transportation Department.

During the public health emergency, City Council meetings are being conducted electronically.  Please join the meeting via teleconference at the following here. The meeting will also be streamed live on the City’s Facebook page.

Transportation Demand Management evaluates and promotes transportation options to improve outcomes for commuters, businesses, and communities.  A TDM plan formulates recommendations for parking resources and other infrastructure, and incentivizes the use of public transportation, walking, bicycling, carpooling, and telecommuting.  The City has pursued the development of a TDM plan as part of its commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, enhancing economic vitality, and improving quality of life for all residents.  More information about the process of developing the TDM plan is available here, and the final report is posted here.
