Later this month, Crawfordsville leaders will learn if they’re the recipients of millions of dollars in state aid through the Stellar Communities program.

It’s the fourth time the city has applied and the second time it’s been named a finalist. But the application is only half the process.

WBAA’s Stan Jastrzebski went to Crawfordsville last week and tagged along as officials from the Lieutenant Governor’s office and the state’s Office of Community and Rural Affairs scouted the city.
