The Little Rock Technology Park Authority has launched its new website.
The technology park, which is in its beginning stages, aims to stimulate more research and development in the area.
The website, lrtechpark.com, provides an overview of the proposed park and features contact information, a development timeline and document downloads.
The Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, City of Little Rock, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the University of Arkansas at Little Rock started the park initiative.
The first seven members have been appointed to form the park authority. L. Dickson Flake and C. J. Duvall will represent the City of Little Rock. Ed Drilling and Dr. Michael Douglas will represent UAMS. Dr. Mary L. Good and former state Senator Bob Johnson will represent UALR. Jay Chesshir, president and CEO of the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, will represent the chamber.
The authority has no paid staff, and the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce provides all staff support for the authority free of charge.
