Indiana Lays Out Money for Richmond High-Tech Market

"By creating this technology zone, Richmond is putting out the welcome mat to high-tech jobs and working aggressively to get more of them," O'Bannon said in a release.

The city also has received $181,000 from the Main Street Richmond/Wayne County Technology Initiative Program.

Richmond plans to use the money to study how to make the community more desirable to high-tech companies. Possible initiatives include improving the city's infrastructure, marketing the community's image at trade shows and through multimedia advertising, and establishing a comprehensive training program to attract jobs and retain skilled workers for the technology industry.
