The city of Crawfordsville is one step closer to submitting their Stellar Grant application.

The Crawfordsville City Council voted Monday night to re-affirm the city's comprehensive plan, a move that Mayor Todd Barton hopes will help in the application

process.

"As we look at the plan, it is still solid," Barton said. "It wasn't followed for a number of years."

Barton said that after the city finds out if they receive the Stellar Grant the council should look at updating the plan.

"I want to know where we fall with Stellar first," Barton said.
