The City of Crawfordsville is in the midst of multiple grant proposals to the state. We talk a lot on this week’s program about the ins and outs of the Stellar Communities grant for which Crawfordsville is a finalist, but there’s also the governor’s Regional Cities Initiative.

So is it considering double-dipping if one city attempts to receive multiple gifts from the state?

A lot of the Stellar application is based around attracting and keeping young people in Crawfordsville.

We quiz Mayor Todd Barton how he plans to do that and how much he feels he needs to cater to students and young professionals specifically in the city’s plans.
