City Schedules Innovation Center Listening Tour

The Davis City Council is interested in establishing new innovation business opportunities that facilitate technology & business development in Davis.  The City has received two planning applications for Innovation Centers:  Mace Ranch Innovation Center, at the City’s eastern edge, and Davis Innovation Center, at the City’s western edge.  These applications are in the planning process, both require Environmental Impact Reports, and eventually a public vote to annex the property into the city limits.  The City & UC Davis are partnering on a 3rd site, Nishi Gateway, a mixed-use innovation district located in the Richards & Olive Drive area, south of the UC Davis main campus.  For more specific information about the innovation center projects, please visit:

    Brilliant!  Hopefully, either the City has included funding (obtained from developer application fees) for Full Page On-Line Banner and Print Ads announcing each of these events so that the message gets through the background noise surrounding all of our busy lives.   As a community conceived convening effort, perhaps we could even recruit the Davis schools to send home an announcement to their families?  Point being, we haven’t always done a good job of announcing and promoting important events of this kind, and there’s no time like the present to give it whirl.
