Another Facebook Data Center is coming to Prineville, and those involved with economic development say the timing is great. Crook County is one of the hardest hit places in the state, so the new data center is welcome news. Company officials say they expect to break ground on October 1st for the second Data Center. It continues the construction jobs and brings in about 10 more full time jobs. Economic Development Manager for Prineville and Crook County Jason Carr says without Facebook, things would be even worse. He says the tax incentive was a big carrot for Facebook. The company only has to pay taxes on the land for 15 years. The buildings are equipment are exempt under the incentive. Carr says Prineville is also an easy trip for Facebook executives; they can fly directly from the Bay Area to Redmond. He also says Facebook's presence could draw other similar companies here. Facebook officials made the announcement about the second Facebook Data Center during Tuesday night's Prineville City Council.
