There’s something so inspiring about the arrival of spring. Each year, after winter’s much needed slumber, life returns. Trees begin to bud, the green returns to the grass and we look forward to the opportunities that come to us with renewed energy and optimism.
Reflecting on our accomplishments in 2015, and documenting our continuing efforts for the first quarter of 2016, I am grateful to all of you for supporting downtown Bloomington, and the efforts of the Downtown Bloomington Association. Our hard working business owners go above and beyond to provide their guests with very personal, one-of-a-kind experiences that lead not only to repeat business, but, more often than not, life long friendships. First Friday attendance is on the rise, and there’s a renewed spirit of collaboration that can be seen and experienced on every corner.
As our city grows through BN Advantage, its a great time to be Downtown. Exciting Change is on our horizon, and we look forward to continuing our work with our community partners and with the City of Bloomington.
As a new feature of our website, I would like to invite you to keep up with what we’re working on by visiting the New Meetings and Reports page. On it you will find our 2015 Annual Report, our 2016 First Quarter report, and Board of Directors meeting minutes.
I welcome your feedback and encourage you to become more actively involved in our organization – We will find a spot for you!
Thank you again for your continued support. Our members make all things possible!
