SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - Many in Sullivan say they'd like to have a pool of some kind in the area. 


A small group is working together to see what could be possible. They gathered for the first public committee meeting Thursday night.

The city already decided not to open the Sullivan City Pool this summer and a community organizer says that's all in the past. She says she wants to focus on building an new pool.

Dee Fulford is spearheading efforts. She says she agrees the city pool is too far gone and would be too expensive to fix.

She is leading discussions to decide what type of facility would best serve the community. Fulford says they are looking into the possibility of an indoor pool, outdoor pool and even aquatics center.

"Honestly, probably the biggest response we've had is they'd like to have a combination of both. We're talking about splash pads, you know, all kinds of different things for the kids to do, and adults."

Fulford stresses the group is in the very early stages of coming up with a goal. They have decided to move forward with becoming a 501c3 or non-profit group for fundraising efforts. Fulford says they also want to do a feasibility study.
