STATEHOUSE (Oct. 25, 2017) — Culver has secured the title of a Stellar Community from the 2017 Stellar Communities Designation Program, according to State Rep. Jack Jordan (R-Bremen).

Jordan said Culver was chosen from six finalists for its investment plan that focuses on creating workforce housing with the Sand Hill Farm Development, expanding the Lake Maxinkuckee bike and pedestrian trail, renovating the local landmark Beach Lodge, and improving the western gateway into Culver to create an appealing corridor into the town.

“The citizens of Culver have shown exceptional dedication to making their community stand out,” Jordan said. “I am looking forward to seeing the updates and renovations this investment plan will bring. Congratulations to this Stellar Community.”

Launched in 2011, the program is a multi-agency partnership designed to recognize Indiana's smaller communities that have identified comprehensive community and economic development projects and activities.

Each year, one Hoosier community with a population over 6,000 and another community with a population under 6,000 are named Stellar Communities. Culver secured this year’s title for the community with less than 6,000 residents, and Madison in Jefferson County received the other recognition.
