To understand why the Council approved building a fire station on 6 Points Rd, you have to go back in time.
The current Council is convinced Bloomington’s future is downtown. Just as they are wrong, history has proven development in SW Bloomington started and stopped. Mitsubishi hadn’t yet failed and reduced its workforce. It was May 2005 when the land was purchased, the COMPREHENSIVE PLAN stated a fire station was needed.
This is why all Master Plans need to be scrapped, this plan was wrong and cost millions of dollars! The others are no different.

Jump back a few years to December of 2003. Who voted for the Coliseum?
Looks like voting for anybody named MIKE costs you money.
Or, we could just blame the two guys who voted for both: Matejka and Sprague.
