PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - The Pendleton City Council has been asked to approve a lease with a $45 million data center at the Eastern Oregon Regional Airport.

The East Oregonian reports (https://goo.gl/LAhm4N ) that the council’s approval would finalize a 30-year lease with Makad Corp. to build a colocation data center on nearly 12 acres on Airport road.

The lease comes about six years after the city extended Airport Road to attract business.

Economic Development Director Steve Chrisman says the data center could generate as many as 45 jobs. He says the city could receive $295,970 in tax revenue in the next 25-27 years, as well as more than $826,600 over 28 years through rental fees, not including the consumer price index increases.

Makad is a Vancouver-based project development group.
