Culver Town Council, CRC to Hold Special Session

The Culver Town Council and the Culver Redevelopment Commission will work together in a special meeting today to work out responsibilities for the upcoming Stellar Communities application.

Town Council President Ginny Bess Munroe explained to the council members last week that there are a number of new projects and enhancements to this year’s application and the town could be more productive if all of those responsibilities were divided to ensure success. She said there are too many items for Town Manager Jonathan Leist to concentrate on that will reduce his focus on town responsibilities.

The letter of intent to apply for the Stellar Communities Designation Program is at the end of April.

Culver was close to winning the designation of Stellar Community last year, but the honor was awarded to Corydon. The purpose of the Stellar Communities Designation Program is to recognize Indiana’s smaller communities that have identified comprehensive community and economic development projects and activities in addition to a plan and key partnerships.

The joint meeting is set for today at 4 p.m. ET at the Culver Town Hall.
