Prospect Hill Public Art Installation Completed - "Common Pollen"
Prospect Hill has new public art on display! Many thanks to Eoban Binder for organizing the Neighborhood Improvement Grant application from the City. Prospect Hill artist Becky Holtzman was selected for her art design "Common Pollen," based on a magnified image of a sunflower pollen. Several volunteers showed up on Saturday, Aug. 4 at Fairview and Howe Streets at Building & Trades Park to help clean the street, draw, stencil, and paint the new artwork - a great day of neighborhood collaboration! See photos of the work in progress on Facebook orFlickr, and view a time-lapse video here. Becky's work joins the existing art in B&T Park - Sam Bartlett's worker murals and Dale Enochs' carved limestone benches. Thanks to all of YOU, our park is the proud home of works by several local artists and artisans!
IU Health Bloomington Hospital Site Reutilization Update
In January 2018, the City of Bloomington agreed to purchase the current IU Health Bloomington Hospital site for $6.5 million. IU Health will pay for demolition costs for the site. The city expects to take ownership after the hospital moves in 2020-2021 to the new IU Health Regional Academic Health Center at the S.R. 45/46 bypass (near 10th Street).
The city engaged the Urban Land Institute (ULI) to develop recommendations for the site. ULI visited Bloomington and held interviews with 100 community representatives (including Prospect Hill) in April 2018. ULI's issued a draft report of their findings and recommendations in summer 2018.
We encourage our neighbors to follow information and updates available at www.bloomington.in.gov, in the local media, and at our monthly neighborhood association meetings We will provide more information here as it becomes available.
