Abstract : Eglin AFB proposes to lease approximately 118 acres to establish the ECTRC. Currently, 20 acres are associated with the UF-REEF. Approximately 98 acres of the parcel would be developed by a private developer for this purpose under the Enhanced Use Lease (EUL) program. The ECTRC is envisioned as a partnership campus between Federal and state government, including the military at Eglin AFB, the private sector, and academia. The ECTRC would be developed as a campus attractive to hi-tech companies paying premium wages to skilled professionals. With military and private sector co-use of facilities and access to University of Florida resources, the campus would create a synergistic environment benefiting current and future missions, research, development, and the communities at Eglin AFB.
