Local Confusion/Enthusiasm for "NASA" Park/Campus in Colorado

NASA campus in Loveland could mean 10,000 new jobs

"At the cost of $5.5 million, the Agilent technology campus could soon have dozens of companies working to turn thousands of NASA patents into products. They are jobs the mayor of Loveland says the town welcomes. "These are the kind of jobs that are good paying jobs and the kind of jobs you can raise your family on," Mayor Cecil Gutierrez said. The Federal Space Act agreement calls for the creation of the park. It also calls for NASA to partner with a nonprofit designed to strengthen Colorado's clean energy industry, a group known as CAMT (Colorado Association of Manufacturing and Technology)."

"The Aerospace Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Park is a joint effort by NASA and the Colorado Association for Manufacturing and Technology. CAMT and the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp. are partnering to select sites for the park. One, an existing facility for a portion of the park and the other, a "greenfield" site where new facilities will be built. Various news reports Tuesday stated that the former Agilent site in Loveland had been chosen as the location for the existing facility portion of the park. CAMT issued a statement Wednesday morning contradicting those reports."

"This is incredible potential for Loveland and Northern Colorado," said Gutierrez. Betsey Hale of Loveland said it's anticipated 10,000 jobs will come to the state as a result of this venture. Hale said up to about 100 companies could move in to the business campus."

"The park, which will house up to 100 clean energy and aerospace companies, could create 7,000 primary employment jobs regionally and 10,000 statewide within five years, Cahill said. Businesses in the park will have access to a NASA innovation official and resources such as education and shared services to assist in faster product development, according to an informational sheet about the program."
