FREDERICK, Md. –Frederick County Executive Jessica Fitzwater’s Data Centers Workgroup will hold its first meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 2, in the 3rd floor hearing room of Winchester Hall.
The workgroup is charged with examining existing laws and other issues related to this relatively new and rapidly changing industry. County Executive Fitzwater formed the group in response to recommendations from two Transition Team committees – Economic Development; and Sustainability, Infrastructure and Transportation – to convene stakeholders to develop a model for critical data infrastructure that leverages the benefits data centers can provide while protecting the environment and Frederick County’s quality of life. Information about the workgroup, including its membership, can be found at FrederickCountyMD.gov/DataCenters.
Meetings of the workgroup are open to the public. They will be recorded and made available to watch online the following day at FrederickCountyMD.gov/FCGtv.
