When one thinks of the term “tech corridor” the first thought to come to their mind is Silicon Valley.
But Pinal County Economic Development Program Manager Tim Kanavel says that Silicon Valley is not the only tech corridor in the United States.
“There are several tech corridors across the nation,” Kanavel said. “There is a very successful one in Northern Virginia called the Dulles Technology Corridor and another one in Florida. It’s not a concept exclusively for California.”
In Wednesday’s Board of Supervisors regular meeting, resources were allocated to Planning and Development to study the advantages that a tech corridor would have for Pinal County and the region.
