Joe Campolo, CMM Managing Partner and Chairman of HIA-LI’s Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge Task Force (LI-IPH), spoke as a panelist at the 33rd annual HIA-LI Trade Show Executive Breakfast on October 14, 2021. Campolo spoke about the critical economic development initiatives the Task Force is tackling, including:

  • taking advantage of the LI-IPH’s “Edge City” characteristics to maximize economic development;
  • challenges and opportunities in the LI-IPH, including school district enrollment concerns and wastewater challenges;
  • the tremendous untapped economic potential of MacArthur Airport – including the $1.1 billion the airport stands to make by adding more nonstop flights for the business community. The study was spearheaded and conducted by CMM on behalf of HIA-LI.

Campolo was joined by moderator Mitch Pally, CEO of Long Island Builders Institute, and panelists Kelley Coughlan-Heck, Executive Vice Principal of TRITEC; Scott Burman, Principal of Engel Burman; and Michael Brod, Managing Director of Canoe Place Inn and Rechler Equity Partners.
