FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) - The city of Frankfort is in the running for an award worth million of dollars.
Frankfort is a finalist for the 2013 Stellar Communities Program, along with Angola, Bedford, Petersburg, Richmond and Wabash.
Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann announced the six finalists Monday, narrowed down from 24 submissions from cities and towns around the state.
The finalists will now take part in additional workshops and planning sessions to fine-tune their submissions. In May, each finalist will have a site visit before two of them are named stellar communities.
Delphi was named a Stellar Community last year, giving the city millions in state and federal funds to help revitalize the downtown business district and redevelop downtown neighborhoods.
It's the third year for the Stellar Communities Awards, a joint effort between Indiana's Office of Community and Rural Affairs, the Housing and Community Development Authority and the Department of Transportation.
