Dream Walk well attended

They ranged in age from 11 to 84 and assembled outside the Rush County Chamber of Commerce to begin a special walk last week. More than 50 people joined together July 15 to help create a new vision for what Downtown Rushville could become through a “Dream Walk” sponsored by Partners for Progress.

Partners for Progress, a group of Rush County residents making an effort to maximize all the positives of our county and to address areas of concern as well, invited the community to join in a Dream Walk - and the community came along.

More than 480 suggestions were made by the participants who went on a walking tour of the downtown district, following a list of properties that are currently vacant or may be under-utilized in the community, said Jason Clemmons.

Partners for Progress asked residents to provide ideas or dreams of what a property could become and what was needed for a better future in Rushville. Addresses on the list were: 103 S. Main, 211 N. Main, 217 N. Main, 219 N. Main, 227 N. Main, 231 N. Main, 233 N. Main, 306 N. Main, 330 N. Main, 121 W. Second, 201 W. Second, 127 W. Third, 129 W. Third and another property on West Third Street, behind 305 N. Main Street.

Residents who were unable to attend the walk are encouraged to visit City Hall or the Rushville Republican website where you can view the properties. Resident’s dream lists should be dropped off at City Hall, 133 W. First Street, Rushville, or the Rushville Republican offices at 126 S. Main Street.

In working with the Office of Community and Rural Affairs on community development grants, “when you look at the grant dollars that are out there, a lot of them are for downtown districts,” Clemmons pointed out, highlighting one of the reason Partners wanted to begin accumulating ideas from the community about what they wanted to see in our future downtown.
