The county and the city okayed the expansion of its rural enterprise zone.

 

The groups approved up to 211 additional acres to the original agreement to allow solar and electrical producing equipment to move into the enterprise zone.

 

Prineville City Manager Steve Forester says the company behind "Project Pillar" which he admitted is Apple, is already looking to expand its data center there ... only a year after construction on its original data center started.

 

Apple's agreement with Prineville and Crook County provides property tax exemption for up to 15 years in exchange for jobs.

 

Apple must pay local governments an annual project fee of 150-thousand dollars.
