The U. S. General Services Administration announced Friday that a new Immigration and Naturalization Service center will locate at Summit Technology Campus in Lee's Summit.
About 550 people will work at the new center, to be open by February.
The federal government had been looking for about 120,000 square feet to process a growing volume of records of people applying for U.S. citizenship. The records are stored underground in Lee's Summit at Space Center Summit. Locating the new center near the existing INS National File Center will make it easier to transfer files.
The $26 million lease at Summit Technology Center runs 10 years.
