MUNCIE -- From the front porch of her near-downtown apartment, Catherine Clark looks across the street at weeds, a concrete slab and a rusty old industrial building with graffiti, broken windows and one of its doors standing wide open.

"It'd be wonderful to have a little park or grocery store there," said Clark, a part-time employee in the county prosecutor's office who lives in Howard Square, a three-year-old, 30-unit, affordable apartment community.

The chances of something being done to improve the abandoned site -- known as the Shear-Line Golf Equipment/Kiser plating property, 401 E. Howard St. -- greatly improved recently when it was named the city of Muncie's top brownfield site. The property was mostly destroyed by fire in 2001.

The city has acquired enough funding to conduct environmental assessments on eight brownfields and to sample four of the sites for hazardous substances.
