Former Chevy plant’s future discussed
Local officials will meet in February to seek public input on the future of the former Chevrolet Muncie plant site.
Two “visioning and planning sessions” for the near-downtown industrial site — vacant since buildings were razed following the spring 2006 closing of the plant, which operated as Manual Transmissions in its final years — are set for Tuesday, Feb. 8, at the Horizon Convention Center.
The identical sessions are set for 1:30-4 p.m. and 6-8:30 p.m. that day, the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance announced Tuesday. Participants will receive an overview of the area and constraints to redevelopment, then break into eight-person groups to discuss visions for redevelopment.
The session will be overseen by facilitators from Kansas State University.
To register for the sessions: Brad Bookout at the Muncie-Delaware County Economic Development Alliance at 751-9133.
