Technology Park evolves slowly Old Naval Ordnance Station labors to shed military trappings By Wayne Tompkins Louisville Courier-Journal (KY) December 12, 2004 The sign says it's a technology park, but once inside paint chips come to mind before silicon chips. Since the Louisville/Jefferson County Redevelopment Authority took over the Naval Ordnance Station in southern Louisville and renamed it Technology Park of Greater Louisville, the project has been slow to attract high-skill, high-pay and high-tech jobs. It's still a heavy industrial facility that lists 10-ton cranes as one of its key assets. ... Traughber said whenever someone at the park wants to build a loading dock, or even plant a tree, here's increased expense that occurs from having to conform to state environmental procedures - after the state has given permission to dig. "There are some areas on the site that they're just not going to let us redevelop" given the extent of contamination, Traughber said. Progress has been made on the cleanup, but what hasn't been done "will increase the cost out there," Traughber said. "To dig, you have to get approvals, you have to do it certain ways. Any construction project you take out there that breaks ground will be more costly."
