Turn the transmission line lemons
into lemonade for all.
More than a decade ago, land on Pageland Lane was destroyed with the construction of massive Dominion Power transmission lines. This forever transformed the rural setting and reduced property values in the area. Now Pageland is sandwiched between a quarry and a three-million square foot data center. This has caused it to become a major cut-through for commuter and construction traffic to and from Loudoun County. We were handed a bunch of transmission line lemons, so now we want to turn them into lemonade for all.
The PW Digital Gateway project will plan and create an environment attractive to data centers. This growing industry will provide millions of dollars in tax revenue annually, reduce tax burden for residents, bring better-paying jobs to PWC, fund our schools, and so much more—lemonade for everyone!
Need convincing? The Digital Revolution has transformed Loudoun County into an international powerhouse, taking in over $700M in annual taxes while Prince William County only takes in $64M. We are the right location! Putting data centers along the existing transmission lines is a "no-brainer"!
This is our golden opportunity to
end economic segregation.
As the population and land-use in Prince William County has evolved, an income divide between the eastern and western parts of the county has emerged. Our PWC land-planning map has not been updated for decades, resulting in economic segregation—this is our golden opportunity to change that. The PW Digital Gateway project sees data centers like a flock of geese just waiting to lay golden eggs. These eggs will create opportunities to bridge the income divide and integrate Prince William County to the benefit of all residents.
Doing nothing will just cook our goose.
Data centers are a golden goose on the horizon looking for a place to land. We have all the resources they need. We just need to plan for it and do it now. Doing nothing will cook our goose. Supporting data centers in Prince William County's Digital Gateway will provide all of us with golden eggs for years to come!
