Muncie Redevelopment Commission

Muncie Redevelopment Commission (MRC) is authorized to acquire and dispose of abandoned residential properties. This Policy and Procedure Manual (Manual) attempts to compile programs and tools the City of Muncie through its Muncie Redevelopment Commission can use to provide opportunities for these abandoned properties.


The Muncie Redevelopment Commission (MRC) Residential Programs oversee a number of vacant residential buildings and vacant lots within the City of Muncie. As recommended by the Neighborhood Investment Committee (NIC), the MRC approves all acquisitions and dispositions through the program.
There are six residential programs, Residential, Urban Revitalization, Pocket Park, Community Garden & Orchard, Side Lot, and the Hardest Hit Fund Blight Elimination Program. For more information regarding these programs, please consult our Policy and Procedure Manual, or contact our Residential Program Administrator.

Robert F. Kennedy visited Muncie in May of 1968. The Ball State men’s Gym was selected as the location for Kennedy’s speech; however there was much concern over filling all the seats in the gym. Conversely, the Gym was filled to capacity, with an estimated 9,000 people filling all the seats and the entire playing court, after playing waiting hours for Kennedy’s appearance.
