The Leon County Research and Development Authority (LCRDA) owns buildings in and manages Innovation Park. The LCRDA is governed by a Board of Governors comprised of prominent academic, business and community leaders who work together to advance the growth and development of research into high-tech businesses in Innovation Park.
LCRDA’s mission is to promote scientific research and development activities, foster economic development, and broaden the economic base of Leon County by working in affiliation with local, state, and federal government, Florida State University, Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College.
The LCRDA is a State Special District Authorized by FS Chapter 159 Part V, and was created by Leon County Ordinance. While the LCRDA is part of the county government, all funding comes from lease-related revenues. It receives no direct tax dollars.
