Tech Park about to heat up

Posted By on Tue, May 7, 2013 at 9:07 PM

I wrote this morning about the latest development on the woebegone Little Rock Technology Park — a rump effort to take over the site selection process because of factional divisions. In short, Chair Mary Good has introduced a new site on University Avenue outside the agreed-on selection process.

I thought to myself as I wrote this morning — what a disaster (I actually thought of a coarser word beginning with cluster). What credibility this undertaking ever had — and it's had its share of doubters from the start — is shot. With a 3-3-1 vote likely spelling impasse on possible site alternatives should the board ever get around to voting, I wondered: Does any leadership exist in Little Rock to right this operation? If not, can voters take matters in their own hands and circulate a referendum to at least shoot the cripple and put all of us out of misery?

Surprise. Something akin to forceful leadership may have finally shown up. I'm on the trail of the evidence and hope to share it before long. Stay tuned. I'm quite sure it will be a subject of discussion at tomorrow's Board meeting, 4 p.m. at UALR.
