Bring it on Bloomington Receives National Recognition

The Bring It On Bloomington Comprehensive Plan received the Daniel Burnham Award for an Outstanding Comprehensive Plan from the Illinois Chapter of the American Planning Association (ILAPA) in 2015. Named in honor of the iconic Chicago city planner and architect Daniel Burnham, the annual award recognizes a comprehensive plan that advances the art and science of planning. In 2016 Bring It On Bloomington was one of only eight in the nation to meet the APA’s Comprehensive Plan Standards for Sustaining Places and one of only five to be chosen at the Silver Level. MCRPC & City of Bloomington thank sincerely the many residents and community partners who helped shape this plan. Now, let us work together towards its implementation.
