Bloomington Sustainability Commission
Thanks to the Ikes and other members of the community, and our City Council and City Staff, the City of Bloomington Sustainability Commission was created in 2017. The Commission is made up of residents of Bloomington and their work focuses on multiple areas of sustainability, including Energy and Carbon, Water Quality and Conservation, Ecological Land Stewardship, and Solid Waste. Learn more about their activities and ways to get involved on the City website.
Council members, City staff, and priorities continuously change. So we always need your help in showing public support for protecting and restoring our natural environment and for other sustainability initiatives.
If you are a Bloomington resident, you can send your City Council representatives a note on what you believe they should consider. Find their contact info here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRglFyQ9tzQ
