BISNOW: Prince William County’s 2,100-Acre Data Center Plan Clears Key Hurdle After 10-Hour Hearing

“It’s really an economic development initiative to solidify the county’s commercial tax base and create a long-term sustainable revenue source to fund critical community priorities,” Commissioner Qwendolyn Brown told the hearing early Thursday morning. “[PW Digital Gateway] presents an opportunity to transform Prince William County’s future in a profoundly positive way.”

The board’s narrow 4-3 vote in support of PW Digital Gateway represents the first official position by county officials on the controversial project, first proposed in 2021 by developers and a group of landowners.
