MUNCIE, IN - A third roundabout in south Muncie that will replace that Muncie welcomes you headstone at Madison and Walnut streets will be part of a long awaited beautification project done in 2013.
And south Muncie residents got a peak at the landscaped and median South Madison from Walnut to 29th Street where the new Muncie Visitors Bureau is located along with the old half empty Southway Plaza.
Landscape architects with Land Story of Indianapolis showed the design to members of the South Muncie Community Development Corp., city officials and others on Thursday at the 26th Street Cafe in Southside High School.
Architect Doug Decker did much of the talking, letting about 25 people know of the 16 foot median and landscaped street complete with sidewalks and rain gardens to handle hundreds of gallons of storm water that come off the Jackson Park Baptist Church parking lot besides the lot at Southway.
