With Facebook getting closer to completion, the prineville area is becoming a place some other businesses are looking at to relocate. Economic Development of Prineville and Crook County is working with the City of Prineville to include about 975 more acres of property the its enterprise zone. EDCO spokesman Jason Carr says they have not expanded the area since 2003: “When Facebook came in and purchased the 125 acre parcel that they have, we started looking around, realizing we didn't have any other large lots of that size or larger, with the ability to utilize the enterprise zone. So for example, if another data center wanted to come in or another large company that needed a large lot but also wanted to utilize the enterprise zone, we didn't have many options for them to look at." Now that Facebook is doing so well, they realize that things need to change. Carr says they already have some drafts to the Prineville City Council and they should get approval in a few weeks so they can move on for state approval.
