Davis Considers Sites For Innovation Centers

Tonight, the City Council will hear from its Innovation Park Task Force. The group has spent the last year-and-a-half researching possible locations for a business park.

"What we landed on was a dispersed model."

That's City Councilwoman Rochelle Swanson who worked with the task force. She explains a "dispersed model" takes into consideration all the existing vacant office space in town as well as larger chunks of undeveloped land.   
Swanson says a variety of sites would put the city in the best position to attract new businesses. And that will help drive the local economy.
"We are a community that's really gotten by on property taxes and some sales tax revenue alone and we need to be more dynamic and to be able to also bring it in by having more jobs here locally rather than also having to have a large part of our community commute."
Some of the undeveloped land the city is looking at includes parcels in the Fifth Street corridor and on the east and west side of city limits.
