Connecting residents, businesses, and area resources
Come to Crawford
We’re Better Together
Come to Crawford is a collaborative project of the Community Foundation of Crawford County made possible initially through grant funds from Lilly Endowment, Inc.
Fact gathering and planning for this website began in 2019 by convening local stakeholders to identify, prioritize and assess opportunities and challenges in Crawford County. Many community factors were discussed during meetings, the first Crawford County Leadership Institue (CCLI) was held, surveys were conducted, and input was widely encouraged by all ages and demographics represented in Crawford County. Previous surveys and reports were also used in the decision-making process.
After significant community input, Come to Crawford, a community website and calendar was selected as the project. It addresses many of the needs identified through public input, the CCLI, and area community leaders. Crawford County will see the installation of fiber optic cable in 2022, so this project comes at a perfect time for our community. The website and calendar will create branding for Crawford County and its subsequent marketing of the county, and provide a one-stop-shop to access various sectors within Crawford County. The site will promote various activities all over the county, will help businesses who need an online presence, and encourage families to come to Crawford County to enjoy our rural way of life. For residents, this site can be a source of pride in what we have here while celebrating what makes Crawford County special.
Visitors to Crawford County will certainly benefit from this site. They can plan a vacation or activities as standalone opportunities, or in conjunction with a family visit or attendance at one of our events. Perhaps they may even want to relocate here.
