KERSEY – A proposed data center campus project continues its forward movement in Elk County.

At the Fox Township supervisors meeting Wednesday, the trio unanimously approved a subdivision request in which two lots, totaling 1,453.5 acres of Greentree Landfill property off of Route 153, will be subdivided and transferred to Thea Development.

Once conveyed, the lots will be used for the development of a data center campus.
