This paper deals with an assessment of the growth of hi-technology in terms of its future projections for the Research Triangle Park area and the economic, environmental, social, and political dimensions associated with such a development. For anticipated impacts, the Silicon Valley of California is discussed as a case study. Comparisons are made, and based upon the lessons learned from the California experience, recommendations are made relating to housing, waste management, and health. An urgent need is shown for setting up an appropriate mechanism for responsible planning and effective decision making.
