Below is some general information about Bloomington :
Bloomington is the fifth largest city in the U.S. state of Minnesota in Hennepin County. Located on the north bank of the Minnesota River above its confluence with the Mississippi River, Bloomington lies at the heart of the southern metro area, 10 miles (16 km) south of downtown Minneapolis. The city’s population was 82,893 in the 2010 Census.
Established as a post-World War II housing boom suburb connected to the urban street grid of Minneapolis and serviced by two major highways, Interstate 35W and Interstate 494. Bloomington’s residential areas include upper-tier households in the western Bush Lake area and traditional middle-class families in its rows of single-family homes in the central to eastern portions. Large-scale commercial development is concentrated along the Interstate 494 corridor. Besides an extensive park system, with over 1,000 square feet of parkland per capita, the city’s south border with the Minnesota River is buffered by the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
Bloomington, considered by many to be a bedroom community, has more jobs per capita than either Minneapolis or St. Paul. Its economy includes headquarters of major companies such as Ceridian, Donaldson Company, HealthPartners and Toro. The city is a hospitality and retail magnet, recognized nationally for the United States’ largest enclosed shopping center, Mall of America. It is presently the only suburb in the south metro to be served by the Hiawatha Line. (Several suburbs and cities in the north metro are served by the Northstar Commuter Rail.) Early settlers named the city after Bloomington, Illinois.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 38.42 square miles, of which 34.68 square miles is land and 3.74 square miles is water. There are three primary land types in the city. The northeastern part of the city is a sand plain, low hills dominate the western portion of the city, and the far south lies within the valley of the Minnesota River. About one third of the city is permanently reserved for park purposes, including two large natural areas – the Minnesota Valley’s wetlands (controlled by the City and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service) and the Hyland Lake Park Reserve (controlled by the Three Rivers Park District). Water bodies within the city include Bush Lake, Long Meadow Lake, Lake Normandale, Marsh Lake (Hennepin), Nine Mile Creek, Penn Lake and about 100 small lakes and ponds with their wetland habitats.
As of the 2005-2007 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, White Americans made up 82.7% of Bloomington’s population; of which 80.9% were non-Hispanic whites. Blacks or African Americans made up 6.6% of Bloomington’s population. American Indians made up 0.3% of the city’s population. Asian Americans made up 5.1% of the city’s population. Pacific Islander Americans were non-existent in the city (0.0%). Individuals from some other race made up 3.9% of the city’s population; of which 0.8% were non-Hispanic. Individuals from two or more races made up 1.4% of the city’s population; of which 1.3% were non-Hispanic. In addition, Hispanics and Latinos made up 5.0% of Bloomington’s population.
