~~~Speaking of Autonomous… Congrats to our friends at the Iowa City Area Development Group (IADC) led by Mark Nolte. ICAD and Johnson County, IA were selected as one of only 10 US Department of Transportation Autonomous Vehicle proving ground sites from more than 60 competing applicants. They are the only consortium led by an economic development organization. Now, the big vision provides “hook” for a new focus on the attraction of automotive company outposts and AV research facilities. Great example of a transformational economic development strategy. Well done Mark!
