Bristow, Virginia – Concerned Prince William County residents will hold a rally and press conference outside of the James J. McCoart county government building in Woodbridge to protest Prince William County’s reckless approval of inappropriate data center siting in advance of the Board of County Supervisors holding a public hearing to consider the controversial Devlin Technology Park proposal (Item_12-A.pdf (legistarweb-production.s3.
Although the specific focus of the demonstration will be on Devlin Technology Park, the greater issue is how local government continues to be overly accommodating to data center development at the peril of its citizens. Site plans for a nearby project at the “Hunter property” reveal insufficient buffers and the incompatibility of data centers with adjacent residential communities. Routine dismissal of resident concerns indicates what is in store for residents of Gainesville (watching the Prince William Digital Gateway rezoning process) and Warrenton (fighting a proposed Amazon data center) as runaway data center development threatens our environment and quality of life.
Local government needs to slam the brakes on data center development until it can demonstrate an empathetic understanding of, and remediation for, the profound detrimental effects of what it has already approved.
Speakers and organizations represented will be:
The Wright Stuff, Wrighteious Indignation, Spitting Into the Wind
