What is the Community Plan?
As part of the major effort to create a Countywide Plan, San Bernardino County is working with residents, businesses, and organizations to develop the Bloomington Community Plan. The community plan will set forth the community’s priorities for actions, investments, and public policies that are most important for Bloomington to continue growing into the type of community that current and future residents desire. This web page provides information about the community plan process and offers opportunities for residents to share their opinions and to get involved.
There will be a series of three public outreach events for each community plan. Click here to download a flyer for the dates, times, and locations of these outreach events in Bloomington. Click on each of the events below to see more information about the topics and information that will be covered. If you cannot attend, the links below will also take you to an online survey so you can still participate and voice your opinions.
