Readiness Assessment and Data

Economic development competitiveness depends on having solid information about your community’s business assets and making sure your community is ready for development. Whether the opportunity is for two jobs or 200 jobs, completing the readiness assessment and data phase now will make sure you can respond to any inquiry. Sunflower Electric Economic Development can help you prepare for success. Contact Sunflower electric Economic Development for a copy of the Community Readiness Assessment.


Inventory of Assets

When a business or consultant contacts a community, they are looking for specific information to aid in locational decision making. Understanding your community’s assets and cataloging relevant data will help your community provide a professional package of information to help the decision-making process. Assets can take on many different meanings, but for business development purposes we have defined them as follows:

Critical Infrastructure – Sunflower Electric Economic Development can provide a list of critical infrastructure assets your community should know for potential business development opportunities. Examples include identification of available utilities, water, broadband, etc. Contact Sunflower Economic Development for a copy of the Community Rediness Assessment.

Available Properties – If your community has land or buildings available for sale or lease, Sunflower will post the property on the Sunflower LocationOne profile.

Certified Sites – If your community has land available for industrial development, you may be interested in participating in Sunflower’s Certified Sites program.
