Utah County signs off on plan to lure a major data center — like Facebook? — to Eagle Mountain through tax breaks

In what is currently 500 acres of open fields, Eagle Mountain City leaders envision a sprawling data center that jump-starts development on Utah County’s west side.

And that vision could soon be a reality, after members of the Utah County Commission voted Tuesday to approve roughly $150 million in property tax incentives to lure an as-yet-unnamed company — that sounds an awful lot like Facebook — to the southern end of Pony Express Parkway.

“Ideology aside, all the politics aside, our council decided that this was what was best for our community,” said Ifo Pili, Eagle Mountain’s city administrator.
