Delphi Stellar Communities
As new highway construction began to re-route traffic out of Delphi, many worried that the loss of traffic would cripple the downtown. HWC’s plan helped the community “take back” the downtown for residents by creating a pedestrian friendly design. The plan resulted in Stellar Communities designation and has attracted new restaurant, retail, and housing investment downtown. HWC led community planning, prepared the Stellar Communities Strategic Investment Plan, and served as program manager to implement the initiative.
