Empty buildings concern officials

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. -- The number of empty buildings in the Commerce and Technology Park concerns some city officials. Councilman Dennis Reeves said he was driving through the industrial park recently and was surprised. But Kay Rasmussen of the Okaloosa County Economic Development Council said the EDC is aware and continually marketing the park. One councilman wondered why an indoor unmanned systems test center wasn't being placed in an empty building at the park. Rasmussen said none of the park buildings meets the requirements for the UAV center. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 09/09/12) Previous
