The City of Muncie has reached a deal with developer Miller Valentine Construction, who is calling the development “City View 2” – an $11.8-million project that will consist almost entirely of single-family workforce housing homes on scattered sites. They will be rental units to begin with, but there will be options to purchase later. 10 new homes in the Southside Neighborhood, 10 in the Thomas Park area and 17 in the combined Industry, Blaine South East, and East Central neighborhoods. The development is set to begin in May of this year.

At the end of the walk, a large heated tent on the parking lot in front of the Mission will have coffee, donuts, and breakfast sandwiches.
