Dave Simonsen, CEO for JOCO First, sought Johnson County Commission support for the sale of three tracts of land on Plains Drive in Buffalo yesterday.
The parcels in question are east of the city near the I90/Hwy 16 interchange.
Simonsen also requested Commission support to invest the proceeds from the future sales back into the infrastructure at the Bomber Mountain Civic Center…
While the Commission voted to support the sale of the land at 18 and 22 Plains Drive, Commissioner Linda Greenough outlined the board’s concerns…
Clearly, the sale of the properties could provide more capital to invest in an effort to bring the Interapt Company and its software coding training program to Buffalo and Johnson County.
Simonsen acknowledged that additional capital is necessary to bring the training component and the high-tech jobs to the area.
The parcels in question currently house Mountain Meadow Wool, a diesel mechanic, and an auto repair business.
