On the front page of the City of Bloomington website is a link to the Downtown Bloomington website: cityblm.org
The first time I clicked on it I got an error message, the second time the website came up: http://downtownbloomington.org/
Next I clicked on Explore Downtown – then Shop. The site has directory of downtown businesses.
Since I rarely go downtown I don’t know what businesses are still open. I do know this one closed in October of 2017:
CVS closed on January 2nd, they are still listed too.
Government’s biggest problem is starting projects and dropping the ball later. When government strays from only providing services citizens can’t provide, they will fail 100% of the time. Worse, essential services suffer from neglect and lack of funding.
The downtown website wasn’t cheap to construct. Evidently now the City can’t afford to keep it up to date.
