Why Yorktown

Pairing the logistical advantages with a modern, vibrant downtown will make Yorktown a destination for those looking to explore on weekends, relocate their family, advance a business or career, or retire in a safe, relaxing community. Perhaps most noticeably, Yorktown offers a great school system, parks, and trails that are attracting many young families and retirees from the greater Muncie and Fishers/Noblesville areas. These factors, paired with other assets – such as prominent business leaders—means there is a generation of future innovators ready to support and advocate for downtown redevelopment. With the proximity to Ball State University (BSU), Yorktown has a pipeline ready and waiting to help rejuvenate its downtown and stimulate the area’s economy.
