ECoNA UpdateRedevelopmentRecognizing that redevelopment is a robust tool for creating jobs and wealth in the region and thatwhen the combination of public and private resources are invested in the redevelopment of existingbuildings, streetscapes, commercial zones, downtowns, neighborhoods, and brown fields asignificant ROI and leveraging of public and private investments is created by much largersubsequent private investments attracted and created by the improvement to the business potential.The ECoNA Redevelopment Action Team is designed to create collaboration among the ECoNAidentified community sectors around existing and new redevelopment projects and ideas. The actionteam will encourage the development of appropriate redevelopment projects in the region. TheAction Team will provide support and assistance to both private and public entities currentlydeveloping projects. The Action Team will seek funding sources to allow redevelopment projects tomove forward. In some cases the Action Team will lead consortiums in organizing and drivingredevelopment projects.2012 Action PlanDowntown Flagstaff Grants Route 66 Project Brownfield GrantFourth Street Utility Master Plan Consulting Help Arts District/Incubator

    • 69. A Vision, Strategy and Action Plan to StrengthenOur Economy Today and Position Ourselves for the Future Flinn Foundation Grant – Bioscience Tactical Plan for Northern ArizonaThe Flinn Foundation provided a grant to the Economic Collaborative of Northern Arizona (ECoNA) tocreate and implement a tactical plan to insure the strategic plans created by the Bioscience Road Map arerealized and accelerated. The tactical plan development is on-going and certainly has provided a focalpoint for the bioscience community to collaborate. We have discovered that the process to create theplan has sparked interest and activity to move forward with haste with the completed portions of theplan. Also an interesting dynamic is that the process to implement portions of the plan also provides afeedback loop that informs and modifies the plan. At this point in time we estimate that the plan is 30-40% complete. The process to develop the plan has included a collaborative effort of the major biosciencerelated institutions and companies. At the time the report is complete and presented to the FlinnFoundation and the community portions of the plan will either be achieved or certainly underway. Belowis a synopsis of the larger themes and progress to-date:
    • 70. A Vision, Strategy and Action Plan to StrengthenOur Economy Today and Position Ourselves for the Future Infrastructure Northern Arizona like much of rural Arizona lacks the critical infrastructure for the biosciences to expand and incubate. Several initiatives have been identified: 1. Innovation Mesa a. 25,000 s.f. Laboratory Building adjacent to the Northern Arizona Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NACET). $7.8 million dollar project. b. Allows Tier 2 Bioscience Companies appropriate lab growth space and solves the inability of the private real estate market to meet this demand. c. Recently received a $4.0 million grant from the Economic Development Administration. d. Recently received a $1.5 million grant from the Arizona Commerce Authority. e. Northern Arizona University is contributing $100,000 to the project costs. f. City of Flagstaff will bond the balance of the project cost. g. Construction expected to begin fall 2013. 2. Flagstaff Airpark Bioscience and Technology Park a. Technology park set aside for bioscience and technology companies. b. Roads, Water, and Sewer now available c. Working with APS to build a new substation to increase the power available
    • 71. A Vision, Strategy and Action Plan to StrengthenOur Economy Today and Position Ourselves for the Future 1. Bio-computational Center a. Work has begun to actualize this effort. b. Budget has been developed and a community consortium is working to develop the funding model. c. One of the big needs towards making Flagstaff a Bioscience Cluster is the ability to store, handle and analyze big data. A Bio-Computational Center that combines the infrastructure of a Data Center (big servers etc) and the capabilities of a Computational Center (connected computational biologists and programmers). A Center that can support TGen, NAU, NACET (and its clients) and others in the community. Benefits of such a Center: 1. Allows robust heavy computational research enterprises like TGen North to continue to grow and expand and be on the leading edge of its respective field (economic retention and development) 2. Allow for NAU to get into the Big Data game. This is a must if NAU CS and CENS are to be successful in building out a bioinformatics program 3. This would likely be a draw for other similar businesses to come to Flagstaff if they have computational needs (anything "science"-based is by definition "data"-based) (economic development) 4. Such a center will require some staffing, and a position could be built in to a proposal. It will also be a perfect place for CS and Bio interns from NAU and CCC (economic and education development) 5. Would be a great technology-based center to add to the STEM City concept (community development)
    • 72. A Vision, Strategy and Action Plan to StrengthenOur Economy Today and Position Ourselves for the Future1. NAU Research Park – Long Term Plan a. Being developed on land adjacent to the south end of the campus b. Will be used to develop research future research collaborators such as TGEN. c. Will serve bioscience entities as well many other science based research labs.2. NAU Science and Health Laboratory Building a. Expansion of NAU laboratory space - expansion of NAU’s bioscience programs3. Pre-Development Plan a. $50K Grant from the Arizona Commerce Authority to pre-develop land and infrastructure to allow industrial and bioscience companies to grow or locate in the greater Flagstaff area.
