Data centers have become a significant growth sector throughout the U.S. and particularly Northern Virginia as cloud computing gets increasingly common. The Fredericksburg region has identified data centers as an economic development opportunity and has been taking steps to market itself to the industry through competitive tax rates and business-friendly policies.
The City of Fredericksburg will host the August 12 session to provide information about data centers and answer the public’s questions about the industry. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. August 12 at Germanna Community College’s FredCAT facility at 1325 Central Park Blvd.
The featured speaker at the meeting will be Josh Levi, vice president of policy for the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC). The NVTC is the membership and trade association for the technology community in Northern Virginia. It serves about 1,000 companies and organizations, including businesses from all sectors of the technology industry, service providers, universities, foreign embassies, non-profit organizations and government agencies.
