STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Starkville city leaders are being asked to rezone a section of the Thad Cochran Research Park to allow for the construction of a C Spire Data Center.
City leaders will look at a request Tuesday night to rezone the property from single-family residential to a buffer district.
The Oktibbeha County Economic Development Authority will hand over the 5.77 acre tract to C Spire for the project once the zoning change is approved.
Earlier this month, C Spire officials joined local leaders in announcing plans to build the $22 million data center in Starkville.
Work on the project is expected to begin next month.
