It appears tech giant apple is joining Facebook in Prineville.  Apple just paid $5.6 million for a 160 acre parcel of land near Facebook.  No local leaders would confirm it, because of non disclosure agreements, but the Prineville newspaper, the Central Oregonian, was the first to break the story.  Journalist Jason Chaney wrote the story.  “I kind of get a feeling of excitement about this.  Regardless what happens, the County got a big chunk of money for land.  Facebook has done a lot of things as a data center.  And Facebook is very involved in the community and the residual economic impact.  There’s an expectation about this same sort of thing.”  The deed on the sale of the land was signed by Crook County Commissioners on February 15th; the very day the Oregon Senate passed legislation that removed any "surprise" taxes on those who build in enterprise zones, and are promised tax breaks.
