The city of Angola and the Steuben County Economic Development Corp. are partnering with private developers to create a new innovation park. The park will be situated on more than 100 acres near the I-69 interchange at U.S. 20.
The SCEDC did not state whether the developers were seeking any specific types of companies to locate in the park. The developers are working with the Indiana Economic Development Corp. to certify the site as a "Certified Tech Park," which they say will help attract projects with specific technology and infrastructure needs.
The site, according to the SCEDC, currently has local utilities and infrastructure in place.
"Steuben County and the City of Angola are approaching exciting times with the possibility of getting this specific site certified through the ‘Certified Tech Park’ program through the State of Indiana and IEDC," said Isaac Lee, executive director of the SCEDC. "With the availability of dark fiber and other utilities to the site, we are anxious to work with projects that require those key components for their location requirements."
The SCEDC says it will work to obtain additional incentives and resources for companies considering locating in the innovation park.
