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.
