It’s a push for more local jobs in Crook County. "Business Oregon", working with state and local partners, just certified a site that could mean new jobs within six months. The 81 acre "certified" industrial site in Prineville is in the park that houses Facebook's Data Center. Mike Williams is with Business Oregon: "So basically bringing in new employment is what we hope to bring to Prineville. The Facebook facility which is also in the same business park, that was certified in 2005, Facebook has even told us the reason they went to that site is because they felt that they had a certain level of certainty and that they would be able to develop quickly on that site." Certified Industrial Sites are considered project ready, because the typical roadblocks to development have been identified and resolved so that building can begin within 180 days of a development decision. Two other rural Oregon sites were just certified they are: a 101 acre former superfund site in the Dalles and 40 acres of land in Ontario, Oregon.
