Residents raise concerns about environmental impact of data centers in Wallingford

Gotspace Data Partners LLC, a Boston-based company, is working to build two data center campuses in Wallingford. Each campus would have multiple buildings — with a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes that would generate upwards of $1.5 million per building annually for the town. All of the properties Gotspace is looking at are in the IX zone, which allows for industrial and office uses including redevelopment after tearing down an existing building and greenfield development, which would be a forest or an agricultural area. No site plans have been submitted by Gotspace to Planning and Zoning, but Town Environmental Planner Erin O’Hare would first review any plans and recommend conditions of approval to the Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission. Gotspace wants to build two data center campuses in Wallingford.
