Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann announced Bedford and Richmond as Indiana's 2013 Stellar Communities. The cities will now be able to access millions of dollars in funding sources to support their long-term strategic plans. Both communities submitted nearly $20 million proposals. Bedford's plan focuses on downtown development and work force training. Richmond's proposal centers on quality of life improvements including senior housing and improved bike trails and Wi-Fi access.
