Storer Estates is a new subdivision with 34 lots being built on the former Storer Elementary property. The city now owns the property. The new development is to provide new housing options for Muncie and through collaboration with the Muncie Sanitary District, (MSD) the project will also address drainage and flooding issues in the area. The first bid opening was held in August of 2022.

This photo illustrates new trees that are being planted this week at the new Storer Estates development. The trees surround the walking path. This is also a good photo to view the drainage basin. Mayor Ridenour recently told me this walking path will be paved with black asphalt.

Construction continues at Storer Estates, a new subdivision being built on the former site of Storer Elementary School. This week contractors began pouring cement street curbs at the site.

Today the city used their asphalt hot-mix to pave over a number of street-cuts running north and south on Mansfield Drive that were made over the winter for utilities. From the air you can see where the city park will go and the outline of the pond area/walking track. Even as a neighborhood resident, seeing the development from the air revealed new information. Work on the city park on the property is set to begin.
