Crawfordsville Stellar Communities
Facing a distinct decline in the number of professionals living in the community and an aging population, the City of Crawfordsville needed to focus on its quality of life amenities to reverse these trends. Community leaders hired HWC to facilitate planning efforts to prepare a Stellar Communities Strategic Investment Plan. HWC led the planning and management process to identify community projects and associated cost estimates, as well as project schedules. This planning effort resulted in a wide range of quality-of-life investments totaling approximately $16.0 million. Projects included the Fusion 54 Business Incubator, new multi-use trails, homeowner repair program, and the adaptive reuse of the Ben-Hur Building.
