About Grow Rushville
Goal 1 wants you to
Grow Rushville is a participant-driven strategic visioning and planning process to better the future of the community. Local leaders and citizen volunteers created a long-range vision for the future of the Rushville community and a plan of action for achieving it.
This was achieved through the MAPPING program through the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs. A series of five, three-hour sessions involving a minimum of 25 community members were held to discuss the questions:
Where are we now?
Where do we want to be?
How are we going to get there?
How do we make it happen?
During the course of these five planning sessions, participants identified four high priority goals for the Rushville community with action plans for implementation. The four goal groups include:
Goal 1: Parks and Recreation
Goal 2: Supporting Local Businesses
Goal 3: Festivals and Events
Goal 4: Economic and Business Development
If you have questions or would like to join
