Making a case

Curt Witcher, manager of the Allen County Public Library's genealogy center, explains about the tourism draw of the Rolland Center for Lincoln Research to the Legacy Joint Funding Committee in an effort to get its recommendation of the center's $546,000 request.

The Legacy Joint Funding Committee supported $1 million for Bridge of Grace while rejecting a $546,000 request from the Rolland Center for Lincoln Research.

Both projects had been fast-tracked in the process, coming directly from the mayor's office instead of going through the concept letter phase, and moved to the application phase.
