Dr. Greg Hill quoted in Idaho State Journal Article

Dr. Greg Hill, Acting Director Idaho Policy Institute

Cece Gassner, director for economic development, and Greg Hill, acting director of the Idaho Policy Institute, recently were quoted in an Idaho State Journal article titled “INL and Boise State come together in Butte County.” The article highlights a new partnership between Boise State and Butte County – one of Idaho’s least populated places – to institute three new projects meant to enhance economic activity in the area. The projects are being funded by technology-based economic development grants offered by the Idaho National Laboratory.

As part of one project, this spring Gassner will travel to Arco to teach entrepreneurial skills to “anyone who’s interested,” with the hopes of supporting and spurring local business.

Hill, meanwhile will help the city of Arco develop a plan to attract tourists – perhaps through a series of art projects – and inform them of the rich history of the area, and close proximity to the nation’s lead nuclear research and development laboratory.
