Intelliplex Park, Shelbyville’s state certified technology park, needs time to attract more companies and fulfill its potential for creating jobs, Major Hospital officials told a crowd of about 100 on Monday.

In early April the hospital, which founded the park in 2003 along with the city and Shelby County, answered 180 questions from the community. The answers as well as all checks written by the park also were posted on its Web site.

The park is located along Interstate 74 southeast of Indianapolis.

In the meeting, hospital President Tony Lennen wouldn’t say how many jobs had been created at the park, according to The Shelbyville News.

However, Lennen told the crowd that Indianapolis real estate brokers say more tenants would move into the park if it were not for “an attitude of negativity and distrust in the community.”

Those attitudes stem from just a few people, he said.
