Jun 26, 2022 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Groton Town in Connecticut has placed a one-year moratorium on the development of large data centers pending when it enacts its data center industry regulation. According to CT Examiner, the Groton Planning and Zoning Commission voted to place a moratorium on large data centers. The new rule will stop the development of all data centers with a size of 5,000 square feet and above. 

The Planning and Zoning Commission employed the services of Horsley Witten Group to develop data center regulations while also researching data center impacts. So far, Horsley Witten Group has recommended that the commission limit the development of data centers to light industrial zones. In addition, it suggested that data centers larger than 10,000 square feet be regulated.
