 MUNCIE, IN—As construction work continues at the site of the former Storer Elementary, builders and future homeowners can begin to make plans. After a unanimous vote at the July 21st Muncie Redevelopment Commission meeting, 22 building lots at the future Storer Estates will be put up for bid to individuals and/or builders. Buyers will not be able to begin construction until the groundwork at the site is complete, but interested parties can secure a prime building site and plan for construction as early as winter.

The Storer Estates subdivision will include 34 single family homes, a dry retention pond, and a neighborhood park. “The location is really what makes this such a great spot for families,” explains Mayor Ridenour. “It’s near Tillotson, but the addition itself is on a very quiet road, which is perfect for families with small children.”

The site is close to Ball State and IU Health, has a daycare within walking distance, and is just a 5 minute drive from West View Elementary School. Including the future Storer Woods Neighborhood Park, homeowners will have access to 6 public parks within a 3 mile radius.

Assessment values for the 22 lots indicate that the starting bids will range from $31,250 to $33,750. Interested parties can request a packet by contacting Swagley@cityofmuncie.com, and the sealed bids will be opened at the next MRC meeting on August 18.
