Muncie, IN – In partnership with the Muncie Action Plan, the City of Muncie proclaims May to be Beautification Month. Through community input, Initiative 4 of the Muncie Action Plan (MAP) addresses the need to improve and manage our physical environment to create an attractive and desirable place that all of our citizens will be proud of and guests will be delighted to visit.

Like any city, Muncie is an eclectic blend of neighborhoods, a downtown, broad variety of businesses, a university campus, parks, and cultural venues. No one individual or organization, government or otherwise, can keep it looking lovely. This should be a task of LOVE for all of us; we all enjoy our beautiful spaces.

Throughout the month of May, MAP will showcase neighborhood clean-ups conducted in partnership with the Muncie Sanitary District, special projects of many community non-profit organizations, and opportunities for all of us to play our part – not just in May but year-round. Watch for photos and quotes of the day; send us your great photos in response to our motivating questions on Facebook. Tag your photos with #LOVEly Muncie for all to see. Be sure to tell us about the projects you are a part of that help make our community beautiful.

The Muncie Action Plan is a citizen-created strategic guide that expresses the values and aspirations of the Muncie, Indiana community and creates a compelling agenda for our future. We seek to be a community that respects diversity, manages resources effectively and efficiently, and works together to provide an attractive, desirable place for individuals, families, and businesses.
