Gentle Reminder:  Bloomindale's Historic Character Retention - Time to Vote

As I last reported to you last month in January, the Bloomingdale Historic Preservation Committee (BCAHPC) has concluded its year and one half long study, with its cornerstone firmly rooted in community involvement and feedback, on preserving Bloomingdale's historical character.  As a result of this study, the BCA recommends proposing special zoning for Bloomingdale as a means of retaining its historical character. 

During this February BCA monthly meeting, the vote ballot and next steps will be presented to Bloomingdale residents in attendance.  Additionally, the definitions of the proposed Bloomingdale Special zoning, R-4 zoning (coupled w/current updated zoning) and historic district will accompany the vote ballot.

Attached are the handouts, vote ballot/cover letter/definitions, that will be handed out tomorrow at the Civic Association Meeting and voted upon.

If you have questions or comments you can ask at the meeting tomorrow or send an e-mail to  Thank you for considering taking the time to review this material and attending the upcoming meeting.


Chair, BCA Historic Preservation Committee


  1. Did anyone attend this meeting? What was the result?

    I never could find the documents on the civic association blog, the ones that were promised after the January meeting.

  2. There was a big crowd at last night's meeting. There were many motions, with many friendly amendments to those motions. Horacio seemed to be taking copious notes and was able to clearly restate those motions, so perhaps he can share his notes. (Of course, they would be unofficial BCA minutes, until they were approved by someone.)
