VERNAL--Vernal City is going to be the new home of Uintech, a Rural Coworking Center, otherwise known as an Innovation Center.
The city received a $225,000 grant from the State of Utah to create Uintech. The unused and dilapidated former police department building in downtown Vernal will soon undergo major renovations to become the new workspace.
“Individuals, or very small businesses, entrepreneurs, and start ups can come and find a place, and find resources, and also below market rent, so that they can begin their business” said Vernal City Manager, Quinn Bennion.
The state received 10 applications from cities throughout the state and they granted 4 cities money.
“The Vernal grant was the largest one that they granted” said Bennion.
Community partners involved in the project, who are interested in diversifying the Basin economy include, STRATA, Impact Mitigation, Vernal Area Chamber of Commerce, Uintah County Economic Development, the Small Business Development Center and UBTech, among many others.
Construction will begin in the spring and is expected to be completed in May or June.
