Richmond, Ind. — The Richmond Innovation Center, Parallax Systems, and the Richmond Certified Tech Park are pleased to announce the activation of the Center City Wi-Fi project throughout the Main Street area of Main Street Richmond. The mesh wireless service designed by local officials also allows for future growth potential both in reach and services provided.
“This project was designed as a quality of life component setting us apart from other cities our size,” said Jason Whitney, Executive Director of the Innovation Center who also acts as Manager of the Richmond Certified Tech Park. He adds “We feel as though this will give our nine local technology based companies an additional asset to use to retain and recruit talented employees.”
This program is one of the first projects to be completed by the City of Richmond in coordination with the Stellar Designation managed by the State of Indiana. It was outlined as a complimentary project in the City of Richmond Stellar application.
