Make cellular service available to the Sugar Grove Community

Between Marion VA and Independence VA there is a complete lack of any cellular service for approximately 50 miles across several mountains. Sugar Grove in particular is cut off from the rest of the county because of the lack of any cellular service available and this hinders the community in that it does not promote growth and increase in Real Estate, local economy, tourism, business or industry. Furthermore this has a negative chain effect on the community. If we do not work toward growth, we will be left behind .

Having access to cellular service in the Sugar Grove and surrounding areas would greatly improve the quality of life in the community and the number of available services to potential businesses that may want to locate in Sugar Grove and those that currently exist in the area. Furthermore, there are several property owners interested in providing multiple locations for consideration for this proposed cellular tower that would provide service to the area.

Additionally, those traveling through the area would be safer should they break down if they had access to cellular service rather than having to face either waiting on the side of the road for someone to stop or walking for miles to the nearest telephone to call for help.
