On Friday, June 3, 2022, The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce hosted it's first ever Community Conversations at the Golf Club at Eagle Pointe's Eagle's Nest. There was a short presentation by the watershed coordinator, Maggie Sullivan, followed by a panel discussion featuring perspectives on the importance of this resource from community leaders, environmental advocates, scientists, and more to discuss the challenges that may impact businesses, tourism, and sustainability. Attendees were able to come away with a new perspective on the lake's importance to our community and how you can improve its sustainability.
The panel featured Alex Crowley (City of Bloomington), Vic Kelson (City Utilities), Jim Krause (Friends of Lake Monroe), Erin Kunkel, MSC (Cook Medical), Jane Martin (Water Fund), and Mike McAfee (Visit Bloomington). Cheryl Munson, Monroe County Council, At-Large Member, moderated the panel's Q&A.
