Despite protests from residents of Fayette County, Georgia, county officials have voted to annex and rezone over 400 acres of land for the development of a data center office park. The council voted 5-0 to see the land located on Tyrone Road rezoned for data center development. The rezoning will allow a data center campus with 250MW of capacity and 1.5 million square feet of space developed.

The request to annex the land was brought forward by the county’s Development Authority. According to The Citizen, up to 24 residents of Fayette County spoke during the meeting. In addition, the report shows that some of these speakers were in tears, urging the county officials to not allow a data center to be developed close to a rural nighborhood. However, the council noted that the area is perfect for a business park and it would lead to job creation for locals.
