Former Sugar Grove Trustee Perry Clark became the first executive director of the Sugar Grove Economic Development Corporation in January and has started the wheels rolling in an effort to better market the growing community.
Taking the task of drawing businesses into Sugar Grove away from the village staff and giving it to the newly formed Sugar Grove Economic Development Corporation means there is someone thinking about how to get the village's name in front developers all the time, said Perry Clark, the executive director of the SGEDC.
One of the first actions of the SGEDC will be to create a marketing portfolio and package to let developers know more about Suger Grove, Perry said.
The economic development group will allow the village to get out news that might not seem important to the average person - like road widening or utility infrastructure improvements - to a wider audience, Perry said.
"There is friendly competition," Clark said. "Everyone wants to do very well for their town."
But they do band togerther when it comes to dealing with countywide issues or lobbying in Springfield, Clark said.

The race pits incumbent Village President Sean Michels against former village Trustee Perry Clark, who also served for 4 1/2 years as executive director of the Sugar Grove Economic Development Corporation.
Clark has charged the village's high impact fees have driven away residential developers. Rooftops in turn drive commercial growth, Clark said.
"The fee structure has to be revamped along with the entire development process," Clark said.

Clark announces candidacy for village president
Former Sugar Grove village trustee and Economic Development Corporation (EDC) director Perry Clark on Monday announced that he will run for Sugar Grove village president in the April 7, 2009, municipal election.
"The village needs new leadership," Clark said.
Clark said he feels he can take the village in a good direction, bringing a more business-friendly attitude to the village.
"I feel I'm a strong leader," he said.
Clark said that in addition to improving the village's image in the business community, he would work toward bringing additional affordable housing to the village.
"Where can a teacher or a village employee find a single-family home?" he asked. "They can't afford it."
He said he would like to see more apartments, town homes and condominiums in the village. This type of housing would not only enable younger people to afford to stay in town when they leave home, but would also provide places where senior citizens on a limited income can afford to live.
In addition, Clark said the village has not diversified its tax base well enough, and that retail development will not come unless there are more rooftops.
"We should have a variety of developers, not just one or two," he said. "Even in a down economy, we should have more developers moving forward."
He said he would move more aggressively to provide services to senior citizens. He said the village is moving in the right direction with its decision to participate in the Ride in Kane program, making public transportation available to seniors.
However, Clark said he would reach out to all entities to provide additional services to the village's older citizens.
Clark said the village has recently accomplished some impressive things, as well. He said that the improvements to the village's infrastructure, especially the Municipal Drive extension, will more than pay for themselves with more commercial development.
He said that although he would lead the village in some new directions, his campaign will not be a negative one.
Clark, in addition to sales, management and ownership roles in private enterprise, served as a Sugar Grove village trustee for six years prior to his four years as the executive director of the Sugar Grove EDC.
The EDC is a private/public partnership formed in 2003 to attract new businesses to the village, as well as serve the current businesses. Clark resigned from the EDC in July.
