Sen. Chuck Schumer wants to turn a former juvenile detention center in Fulton County into a new tech park.
The senator wants the federal government to fund the project.
Fulton County recently took over the former Tryon Center, with plans to turn it into a business hub.
Schumer says the county needs funding to convert the site into a lab and classroom spaces for new trade programs.
He hopes in turn that will draw more start-up businesses to the area, boosting the economy.
