Portland Legacy Project

The Portland Legacy project is a collaboration between the cities of Bloomington and Richfield who were selected to participate in the 2020 Congress for New Urbanism’s (CNU) Legacy Project.  This initiative brings a nationally recognized design firm - TSW Architects and Planners out of Atlanta and Toole Design Group - to engage our communities to explore opportunities and actions both cities can take to revitalize this aging commercial area and enhance access and walkability.
