As data is gathered, resource referrals are warranted and requested by Sugar Grove executives.  Referrals to business service allies are frequently a follow-up to business outreach interviews.  For that reason, Economic Development staff met preliminarily with key resources that serve the Sugar Grove community.  Economic Development staff also have regular communications with the Sugar Grove real estate community and commercial finance partners.  The SGEDC’s specific partner resources enlisted in this year’s effort included:
