The plan’s first five priorities are:

  • Creating an awareness-building coalition to promote the importance of early-childhood education, especially the importance of Muncie students being able to read well by the end of third grade. Former Ball State University Treasurer Tom Kinghorn is chairing that initiative.
  • Developing a Council of Neighborhoods to represent Muncie neighborhoods. Dr. George Branam and Nilles are chairing that initiative. The Muncie Weed and Seed project is also working on that goal.
  • Making Muncie a bike-friendly community. Marta Moody, director of the city-county plan commission, is chairing that effort.
  •  Continuing to pursue a cultural district designation from the Indiana Arts Commission and a cultural trail, a task chaired by Betty Brewer, president of Minnetrista. The cultural trail would link Minnetrista, Ball State and Heekin Park.
  • Developing a city brand identity and marketing campaign, an initiative chaired by Roni Johnson, president of the Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County.
