DELPHI - The city of Delphi is celebrating the completion of $23 million in improvements as part of Indiana’s Stellar Communities Designation Program. Delphi was named a Stellar Community in 2012. Since that time, the city has renovated the Delphi Opera House, upgraded downtown building facades and underground water mains, and made improvements to its trail system and streetscapes, among others. Mayor Shane Evans calls the work a “significant milestone.”
INDIANAPOLIS - Leaders from Culver and Madison were at the Statehouse today to celebrate their designations as 2017 Stellar Communities. Culver Town Manager Jonathan Leist says the Marshall County city's plan focuses on making it a better and more affordable place to live year-round. Madison Mayor Damon Welch says his city's pitch centered on leveraging assets like the Ohio River, and the renovation and reuse of historic locations. The communities are now eligible for funding and state resources to support substantial quality of place projects.

GREENSBURG – Eighteen months of planning culminated in a figurative red carpet rollout for state officials Tuesday that simultaneously highlighted the city’s storied past, its optimistic present, and what representatives of multiple local agencies believe will lead to a “treemendous” future.
Officials representing close to a dozen state agencies took a bus tour of the sites of several planned quality of life improvements, including a dog park, splash pad, amphitheater and children’s play space, and saw for themselves a vision of Greensburg’s future that has occupied the minds of locals pushing to receive a prestigious state designation for the better part of a year and a half.
