Muncie Earmarks Million For Maker’s Hub

Mayor Dennis Tyler is earmarking $1 million to kick-start the city’s proposed maker’s hub. The Muncie Star Press reports that the city will create a $1 million revolving loan fund and loan that money to Sustainable Muncie, the local nonprofit created in 2015 to turn the former Midwest Towel/Cintas facility downtown into GearBox: Muncie, a maker’s hub aimed at fostering local businesses, artists and artisans.
