Who We Are: Sullivan Spark is a group of citizens from the Sullivan area bringing a spark to ignite the future of Sullivan. The group began with a community based strategic vision and planning process, in the fall of 2018. Sullivan Spark enlisted the help of the MAPPING Program at Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs housed at Western Illinois University .This planning process involved over 100 of Sullivan's citizen and local leaders. A series of five, three-hour sessions, were held to identify four high priority goals for the community, and actin plan for implementation, and break into groups to begin work on their goals and projects. Sullivan Action Plan envisions Sullivan as a vibrant community teeming with pride, culture, and heritage; boasting an array of parks recreation, entertainment, and housing options. A place that will Spark your imagination!
