THE VISION The Bloomington Certified Technology Park stands alone in comparison to other CTPs throughout Indiana. This place is a vibrant downtown district, full of things to do and places to go; a place where collaboration thrives and where relationships are forged. This CTP throws open its arms to welcome current and future residents, as well as the current and future technology-focused businesses. Through an intentional mixing and clustering of uses, the Bloomington CTP fosters collaboration and relationships. It links Bloomington’s compact cultural, civic, commercial, and residential districts. It builds upon existing amenities and provides new attractions that encourage residents of the City to explore and mingle. It celebrates both the heritage and history of what was here and embraces new and emerging technologies that allow us to live in a more sustainable manner. It promotes community, healthier lifestyles, and the desire to work and play close to home through a walkable and bikeable environment.
