From water to noise to tax revenue: How Amazon's Warrenton data center application has evolved

When Amazon land-use lawyer John Foote first talked to the Warrenton Planning Commission about a data center proposed for the town back in June 2021, he gave a brief outline of its potential impacts:

Noise? “As you go farther up the hill, you will likely not know it's there. It makes no noise.”
Tax revenue? "Estimated by our client to run between $3 and $4 million annually."
But as Amazon filed update after update to its data center application -- which still has not been approved -- a lot of those impacts and numbers have changed.

Land-use lawyer John Foote took the microphone at a meeting of the Warrenton Planning Commission June 15, 2021. He surprised those in the room by telling them he represented Amazon
