Muncie Housing Happenings – Now, MRC Move(s)

At the March 16 Muncie Redevelopment Commission Meeting, Muncie Mayor Dan Ridenour surprised some, but presenting a “Plan B,” regarding a housing project proposal (see that meeting here).  At last week’s Muncie City Council meeting, resolution 5-23 asking for a 5 year tax abatement for Horizon Companies, LLC was tabled. Horizon companies, LLC is a developer wishing to build a 276 unit apartment complex at 2901 W. Memorial Drive in Muncie. All 276 units will be low income housing. Representatives from Horizon Companies, LLC were present at the city council meeting, but were not able to communicate a figure for monthly rent amounts to be charged to local tenants, should the development go forward. The request for tax abatement was tabled until the company comes forth with more information, which it is willing to do.
