Sugar Grove conducting hotel feasibility study

By on November 8, 2013

SUGAR GROVE—Sugar Grove Community Development Director Richard Young and Village President Sean Michels announced on Tuesday that they are in the process of implementing a hotel feasibility study. They said they are looking to share the cost of the study with the Sugar Grove Economic Development Corporation (EDC).

Young explained that the cost of the study for the Village Board would be $3,600, but the village is reaching out to different sources for funding. Michels commented on the community’s need for a hotel.

“Based on the citizen survey, we need to conduct the study and bring a hotel here. I would really like to get this going before we get too close to the holidays,” he said.

The Village Board has a consulting firm in mind, HVS International, which possesses expertise in hotel management and assessment and is ready to provide guidance and different services for their study. Young is in the process of going back to the EDC board to find additional funds for the village’s expenses for the study.
