As reported by Scout Muncie- 62% of Muncie's properties are within 500 feet of an abandoned building.
Speaking tonight at Muncie Neighborhoods Leadership Council tonight and here to help Muncie with a plan to effectively tackle abandonment/blight and vacant parcels in our neighborhoods, is Ball State Urban Planning Professor Dr. John West.
Dr. West also represents Value Muncie, a quickly materializing land bank for Muncie.
What is the Muncie Land Bank-
"The Muncie Land Bank is a non-profit entity, partnering with the City of Muncie, to address the issues of property abandonment and vacancy.
The aim of Muncie Land Bank is to effectively acquire, remediate and dispose of abandoned properties to serve some positive public or private purpose through a community engaged process."
In order for Muncie to deal with our abandoned properties, support for the land bank is imperative.
Spread the word and join us.
6pm, Maring Hunt-(Tonight!)
