One of the coolest things going for Rockingham County is the relatively new Technology Park just north of Harrisonburg on Route 11. It’s called Innovation Village @ Rockingham, and is a master planned village that will consist of offices, laboratories, light manufacturing space, multi-use buildings, pedestrian walkways, picnic areas, and a venue for concerts and events! They’ve got a strategic partnership with James Madison University in place, which will also give students the opportunity to perform research and affect the local economy in a powerful way.
SRI International plugged its east coast hub here in 2009, and the local station is called SRI Shenandoah Valley. This company operates a 40,000 square foot research facility at this technology park.
The County’s vision is that IV@R will become the region’s premier high-tech and biotech hub. In order to market the park more aggressively, the Economic Development team decided to create a dedicated website for IV@R. Previously, information about IV@R was housed on a single page on the Economic Development website.
