Warsaw makes Stellar Communities cut

Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly

Warsaw is one of six finalists in this year’s Stellar Communities program.

The statewide initiative involves funding and resources for projects designed to improve quality of life in smaller Hoosier communities. It is financially supported by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, Office of Community and Rural Affairs and Indiana Department of Transportation through state and federal sources.

The finalists are divided between two categories, with population from 6,000 to 50,000 or population below 6,000. Warsaw is a finalist in the larger division, along with Rushville and Shelbyville. Finalists in the smaller category are Union City, Corydon and Culver.

Ten communities applied this year. Finalists will receive planning grants to launch or bolster strategic plans, projects and potential funding partnerships. One winner from each division will be announced in the summer.

Last year’s winners were Crawfordsville and North Liberty. Wabash and Huntingburg won in 2014.
