Lompoc City Council Agrees to Hire Consultant as Efforts to Build California Space Enterprise Center Continue
The Lompoc City Council has agreed to spend about $10,000 for an economic study on the proposed California Space Enterprise Center. The Environmental Education Group is looking at building the center on thousands of acres of city-owned land between Ken Adam Park and Hancock College in Lompoc. Mayor John Linn tells KCOY CBS 12 and the Information Station that the center could mean a big boost for the local economy. However, skeptics say that EEG no experience in building large scale tourism destinations.
The San Francisco consulting firm hired by the City of Lompoc will look at costs for the project, financing options and needed revenue streams.
