Established by the City Council in October 2010 to explore peripheral sites for future business park development to accommodate medium-scale businesses. Two City Council members appointed to form a Task Force with two representatives selected by the Planning Commission, and the Business and Economic Development Commission to return to the City Council with recommendations.
The Task Force completed its duties at the end of 2014, and was subsequently disbanded by the City Council.
The Tasks included:
- Conducting business outreach and public discussion regarding community benefits and impacts of a peripheral business park;
- Evaluate peripheral opportunity sites, focusing on, Mace Ranch/I-80 and the Northwest quadrant as initial site options;
- Identify attributes of world-class next-generation university-related business park and how they would apply to a future business park in Davis;
- Return to City Council with summary of findings and recommendation on future peripheral business park.
The Innovation Park Task Force completed its assigned duties at the end of 2014 and was subsequently disbanded by the City Council.
