"Apple" will build a data center in Prineville. Officials met Tuesday night and approved the agreement. Crook County Commissioner Seth Crawford applauds the economic development. “Facebook has been amazing. They continue to bring data centers to our town and it's nothing but a positive.” Crawford says, with unemployment hovering around 14% in Crook County, these additional jobs are greatly appreciated. Apple plans to invest about $250 million in the Prineville facility and create at least 35 jobs.
 
And They’ll Get A Tax Break
 
Crook County Commissioners approve a tax break for Apple; and hope more will be moving into its Enterprise Zone. Commissioner Ken Fahlgren says Apple will have to meet certain criteria to get the 15 year tax break.  “By giving them the concession, they have to spend $8 to $9 million and employ 35 people to receive the tax incentives up to 15 years.  Apple has submitted plans to build a 10,000 square foot facility. Excavation on the property is already underway. Apple joins Facebook as another data center in the Prineville area.
