Little Rock Tech Park director to begin work in July

Posted By on Wed, Jun 11, 2014 at 5:09 PM

The Little Rock Technology Park Authority board met today to hear a report from Jeff Yates, the realtor the board hired to look for properties along Main Street for lease or new construction for the tech park. Alas, Yates said he'd need until the board's July meeting to get sufficient information from property owners before he could make his recommendations for a site among the four real-estate Main Street clusters he'd previously identified as most suitable. 

The only other news of note: Brent Birch, the newly hired director of the Tech Park, will start work July 7. He'll work out of the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce until the ARK Challenge wraps up at the end of the year when he'll move into the temporary space the tech park is subleasing on the first floor of the Block 2 Lofts building on Markham. Birch's salary is to be $100,000.

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
