Data Centers

Situation Overview

Citizens for Fauquier County (CFFC) is very concerned about the proliferation of data centers in Fauquier where there are now eight data centers including the Amazon facility in Warrenton that are in the application or approval process, and there will be more. CFFC has submitted its recommendations to county leaders to limit data center expansion believing that:

  • Areas currently zoned for data centers are adequate;

  • Rezoning other areas is unnecessary; and,

  • Current restrictions against overhead transmission lines should be strictly enforced.

Data center updates will be posted on this page, stay tuned.

Only Success in Court Can Stop the Amazon Data Center

We promised our fellow citizens that it's not over, and it isn't. CFFC has filed a lawsuit on behalf of town residents who will be directly impacted by Amazon's data center - and we need your help.

"In Their Own Words"

About Amazon's Warrenton Data Center

On February 14, after months of opposition and countless hours of verbal comment, the Warrenton Town Council voted 4-3 to approve Amazon's SUP application - setting in motion Amazon's plan to build a 220,000 square-foot data center on a 42-acre lot adjacent to Country Chevrolet in Warrenton. 


Serious questions remain about the lack of transparency surrounding the application and the council's dealings with Amazon. The vote was not the end, but the start of an even more robust effort to protect our town and county.
