The Switchyard Study Purpose:
The City of Bloomington is working with a multi-disciplinary design team to complete a comprehensive Master Plan for the Switchyard Park property. With the 2011 completion of the three mile B-Line Trail project through downtown Bloomington and along the western edge of the Switchyard property, the City is turning its attention to the development of a Master Plan to define the vision for the future of the Switchyard Park property.
Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan recently stated “The Switchyard and trail corridor project should serve as a catalyst to a reenergizing of our local economy.” Consequently, the geographic borders of the master plan study area will expand beyond the park property boundaries to include an assessment of economic development impact and opportunities, and recommendations for updates to zoning and land use policies in synergy with development of the Switchyard Park.
The Switchyard Study Area:
The Switchyard Park master plan study area is focused on the south side of Bloomington, Indiana and along the B-Line Corridor. To learn more about the City of Bloomington, visit their website at http://bloomington.in.gov/
