Chancellor Joel E. Anderson urged the Little Rock Technology Park Authority at its May 16 meeting to be open to other potential sites for the park, in addition to those already proposed. In his remarks, he asked the Board to remember that location is critical to the technology park’s success, and consideration should be given to minimize the impact on the surrounding neighborhoods. He also suggested that the Board be receptive to input from representatives from the neighborhoods and other interested parties during the entire process. He added that the delivery of clear and detailed information from the Board to the community is essential for a smooth transition once a site is chosen.
The new technology park is an initiative of the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, City of Little Rock, UALR, and UAMS.
