Administrative History

The Muncie Redevelopment Commission (MRC) was formed on July 3, 1973 under city ordinance number 440-B. The ordinance created the Muncie Department of Redevelopment as well as the Muncie Redevelopment Commission. The goal of the Muncie Redevelopment Commission is to rehabilitate “blighted” areas of the City of Muncie. The commission is made up of two members appointed by the City Council of Muncie and three members are appointed by the Mayor. The current MRC was preceded by another MRC but with the passage of ordinance 440-B the former commission was repealed.
