SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — South Bend is moving ahead with plans for a business technology center.

South Bend’s Redevelopment Commission recently approved spending $2.7 million to develop the Technology Resource Center at the city’s 80-acre Ignition Park.

The center will focus on preparing the city and its business for the future economy by using data collection and analysis to improve their efficiency. It would also serve as a meeting place for workshops evaluating new technologies.

Project manager Jacob Burnett tells The South Bend Tribune he’s evaluated other cities, including Baltimore’s Digital Harbor Foundation and Cleveland’s Tech Hive.

Burnett has pulled ideas and concepts from each to create a center crafted to meet South Bend’s needs.

Because it’s so much fun spending other peoples money.

Government STINKS at guessing what the current business climate is, let alone the future one. This waste of tax payer money will stack right up with roundabouts, shell buildings, high speed rail and any number of other boondoggles these self important fools throw money at.

My prediction…they’re going to get it wrong, it will be a waste of time and money, someone politically connected will profit from it.

In the mean time…cut the police and fire departments if the serfs don’t approve tax increases.

Because it’s so much fun to spend other peoples money.
