Bring it on Bloomington Receives National Recognition

Bring it on Bloomington Receives National Recognition

Last year, the Bring it on Bloomington Comprehensive Plan was named the outstanding comprehensive plan in the state by the Illinois Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA-IL). This year, it has been honored again: The American Planning Association (APA) has recognized Bring it on Bloomington as one of the best comprehensive plans in the entire country! Bloomington's plan is 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. We are thrilled to receive this honor, and we thank both the APA and the many partners who helped shape this plan.
