I look forward to the plans which will be presented. Folks, this is an exciting time and we just may see history in the making, leaving a well planned legacy for our children and grandchildren. It is wonderful!
ACP has an impressive list of clients and an even more outstanding is the quality of their projects. The Star Press printed an awesome listof the college and university towns and cities in which ACP helped develop into thriving communities.
Below is a sampling taken from the paper:
“Planning and College Settings . . . ACP has built a strong national reputation for crafting successful visioning and planning processes for college/university towns. Within the past five years, ACP has worked in such communities as: Amherst, Massachusetts (University of Massachusetts, Amherst College, Hampshire College); Oxford, Ohio (Miami University); Columbia, Missouri (University of Missouri, Stevens, Columbia Colleges); Champaign County, Illinois (University of Illinois); Northfield, Minnesota (Carleton College, St. Olaf College); and Columbus, Ohio (The Ohio State University, Columbus State University, Franklin University, Columbus College of Art and Design)”
On Sunday the steering committee was formally announced. A well rounded team of 35 individuals including, but not limited to local business owners, educators from K-12 and higher ed, a pastor, community leaders and those who hold some form of public office.
It certainly appears that each person has had some type of involvement in areas of our city which have the greatest need.
As citizens, our input will be welcomed and our involvement can be vast or small. I hope we will all take time to contribute ideas and work together to make Muncie a viable and beautiful place to live.
Some have called me overly optimistic. But, I say, the opportunity is present. Let’s sieze the moment. Muncie full speed ahead!
