Welcome to TogetherDM,

a community-wide effort to make the Delaware-Muncie region a strong and vibrant place.




Thanks to all who participated in the June open houses. We appreciate your participation in the effort and hope to see you at the next Open House in October!

Through the crafting of implementable plans that reflect widely shared values and the community’s top priorities, TogetherDM will provide leaders and organizations throughout Delaware-Muncie with tools for making consistent, well-informed, and strategic decisions with their resources to achieve well-defined outcomes.




During 2021, the TogetherDM process will produce two documents

Delaware-Muncie Comprehensive Plan




At the core of TogetherDM is the development of the new Delaware-Muncie Comprehensive Plan—a long-range planning document that will provide Delaware County and the City of Muncie with the following tools:


  • A decision-making framework based on the community’s core values and planning principles


  • A set of priorities and goals for focused attention by public and private sector partners


  • Guidance on “what goes where” to shape future development and redevelopment in ways that support community goals


  • Implementable strategies that will help the community work towards specific outcomes



The new plan will replace the previous comprehensive plan, which was adopted in 2000.


Muncie Strategic Investment Plan



The TogetherDM planning process will also produce a Muncie Strategic Investment Plan to provide detailed implementation guidance of the Delaware-Muncie Comprehensive Plan within the City of Muncie.


This city-focused document will also serve as the latest iteration of the Muncie Action Plan, a community-based planning process that began in 2009-2010.

Who's behind TogetherDM?

TogetherDM is coordinated by the Delaware-Muncie Metropolitan Plan Commission (DMMPC) and its planning consultants—czbLLC and Ingalls Planning & Design.


At the heart of the TogetherDM process is a Steering Committee of Delaware County and Muncie residents who represent a wide range of backgrounds and community sectors. Together, along with feedback solicited from the broader public throughout the process, they will shape the content of the Delaware-Muncie Comprehensive Plan and the Muncie Strategic Investment Plan.
