Creating change starts at the core.
Muncie’s “Central City” has been chosen as the vision’s emphasis because of its already thriving institutions and key areas ripe with opportunity. The Central City has a strong foundation and is poised for growth with the support of anchor organizations—IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital and Ball State University—and cultural destinations like Minnetrista, the Downtown Historic District, and the White River Greenway. Former industrial sites will be given new life, vibrant urban living and employment will become abundant, and historic neighborhoods will be restored and revived. While these positive changes will expand past the Central City and reach all of Muncie, it begins with the core.
