PERFECT FOR TECH PARK: So says Jerry Meyer of land outlined on map.

  • PERFECT FOR TECH PARK: So says Jerry Meyer of land outlined on map.

Jerry Meyer, a real estate man who now works in acquisitions for the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System and is a former member of the Little Rock Planning Commission, has distributed to the Fair Park neighborhood a letter supporting land at Asher and Fair Park (adjoining UALR) as the site of the proposed Little Rock Technology Park. I’ve mentioned that idea a time or two.

See what you think of what he has to say. It’s within, or right at the edge of, the 5-minute drive time criteria rather subjectively chosen as a requirement for the project relative to UAMS and UALR. There are no homes on the site. The land is primarily owned by UALR, but a small strip center and a muffler shop are in private hands. (Disclosure: Meyer leases a small building he owns across the street to a pizza parlor.)
