On an 8-1 vote, the Bloomington City Council accepted the Transportation Demand Management Plan as an advisory document. Ron Smith (District 3) dissented.
Beth Rosenbarger, the city's planning services manager, presented highlights from the plan at the council's June 3 meeting, including three key recommendations:
1) Hire 2.5 full-time employees. Staff recommends starting with one full-time employee to start building the TDM program.
2) Implement carsharing as a way to provide vehicles that serve more people and take up less space.
3) Increase prices for parking permits and increase permit options.
Councilmember Smith voted against the plan because he was concerned about the cost of implementing it at an estimated annual cost of $490,000. Other councilmembers pointed out that merely accepting the report does not cause the plan's recommendations to be implemented.
