How do you envision the economic development project known as the Discovery Corridor? In a survey last month, we asked that question of about 2 dozen Discovery Corridor stakeholders and public service providers. We’ll be highlighting the survey results at our Discovery Corridor roundtable on September 27. See below for time and place.
Some of the answers are fairly predictable. But, like us, you may find some of the answers very surprising!
Large tracts of land are available in the Discovery Corridor, but there is very little infrastructure in place. That will require an enormous public and private investment. The challenges of fulfilling the vision of the Discovery Corridor are considerable. The rewards are even greater – family wage jobs amid a cluster of leading edge (i.e. bio-tech) businesses. We also need to provide services that enhance the community’s quality of life, including adequate transportation infrastructure, medical services, higher education, quality schools, parks, libraries, and public safety and public services. So the first question is: How do we get there? From the survey results, most stakeholders want to start with a Strategic Plan. How do we start?
The public is invited to the Discovery Corridor Roundtable, Tuesday, September 27, 4-6 PM. Clark County Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall.
