Coming together to work on tough issues is important. Since last July a group of downtown businesses and community supporters have worked to bring more people into the conversation. Led by Bob Costello of the Village Deli, Soma, & Laughing Planet, Sue Acquilla from Bloomington Bagel and Susan Bright & Greg “Rags” Rago from Nick’s English Hut. The group has not only brought issues to light but worked to address them.
Most recently the idea to activate the park took off with City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation proposing a plan for activities to be held every day of the week for two months. Several businesses stepped forward to sponsor activities as well as Downtown Bloomington Inc. coordinating a Sunday afternoon concert series titled Moment of Music. Activities will range from fitness to games to live music. Take this opportunity to enrich our community, indulge with a cookie or some ice cream, and enjoy our downtown park. It is clean and safe. Let’s keep it that way!
