Downtown Bloomington Task Force Listens, Hears Complaints About Homeless and Panhandlers
Safe and welcoming. Those are the words most of the people who spoke at the first listening session for downtown Bloomington's Downtown Task Force Committee used. Business owners say the city needs to do something about the homeless and panhandlers. They told city leaders those folks scare off customers. There are some downtown owners who say more parks and a more 'welcoming space.' The city could see a report by the end of the year.
