SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The city of Sullivan is working to reopen their city pool after applying for a grant with Indiana DNR.
The pool built in 1963 was closed down two years ago for safety concerns, according to Sullivan Mayor Clint Lamb.
Lamb tells us a $2.3 million revamp project is in the works that would include a splash pad, new slide and rock climbing wall.
Lamb says the original 1963 pool would still be in tact, but cracks would be filled in and other updates would come from the grant.
The city applied for a $250,000 grant from the DNR that the community has to match. Lamb says the city has committed to $1 million to funding the pool and they hope to raise the rest through a marketing campaign.
Lamb says this project will not be possible without grants and contributor and with the pandemic, set plans for the pool are still “up in the air.”
