Aug. 28, 2012 –
The SS&TP will be hosting a news conference on August 28, at Ted Hobbs Park in the SS&TP to announce the results of an economic impact report by the Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG). MRCOG assessed the research park’s economic impact from its creation in May 1998 through the end of 2011. The new, independent report will show that the SS&TP has benefitted the local economy for more than a decade through job creation, increases in state and local tax revenues and higher-than-average wages for its employees when compared with the average wage in the metro area.
