Join in the Dream Walk July 15

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, invites the community to join in a Dream Walk.

One of PFP’s projects is to assess the needs of the downtown district of Rushville. Everyone interested in the future of the downtown district of Rushville is invited meet at 6 p.m., Monday, July 15, at the Chamber of Commerce to begin this project by taking a “Dream Walk”.

Empty buildings in the area bounded by Perkins, Water, the railroad, and Morgan streets will be marked. Participants are asked to dream of how these spaces could be used by placing a sticky note with their idea on the storefront. You will be asked to envision the ideal components of a small, rural downtown. For example, do we need a specific kind of business or service in Rushville? Are there amenities you’d like to see in the downtown area? Green space? Parking? Demolition? Don’t forget to look up – how could the second stories of existing buildings be used? What kind of downtown would you like to see, building by building, lot by lot? Come share your ideas!

Partners for Progress has been working diligently on several community projects. The information gained from this walk will be used for planning and grant-writing purposes. Members appreciate the community’s willingness to help. It will take input from everyone to make Rushville a vibrant community once again. If you cannot attend this event, please share your ideas by filling out a form that can be picked up and dropped off at the Mayor’s Office, 133 W. First St., Rushville. The rain Date is July 22.

For more information, please call Jason Clemmons at 561-2777.
