~ Bloomington, IN- The City of Bloomington has announced a new initiative to support local businesses during the summer slowdown. Starting July 5, residents and visitors can take advantage of free on-street parking in the downtown area after 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

This move aims to increase foot traffic and patronage of local shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Mayor Kerry Thomson expressed her excitement for this initiative, stating that a downtown Bloomington summer is hard to match with its lively community atmosphere. However, she acknowledged the challenges faced by local businesses during this time and hopes that free parking will make it easier for people to come downtown and support them.
