West Bloomington Revitalization Project Gets a New Home

The organization is moving it's headquarters to a larger space.

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - The West Bloomington Revitalization project will soon have a new home.

The group will be moving into the former "Jesus House" on Washington Street, across the street from its current location. The new space will allow the popular Tool Library to grow, as well as provide room for a bike co-op and more group meeting space.

Leaders say the expansion will allow them to reach further into the community.

"The continued vision is to continue to expand our current programs, like the Tool Library. We'll have more space for tools, more space for workshops. We'll have more community gather space, a space for meetings and event," said Ryan Heeren, co-director of the Tool Library.

The organization needs $100,000 to get the building ready. About &48,000 has already been secured. WBRP is looking to raise the last $52,000. It's also looking for volunteers willing to help with moving and repairs.

WBRP expects the new location to be up and running by the beginning of May.
