Under the agreement with the fire district, Facebook would provide up to $300,000, which would be used for traffic devices that give emergency vehicles the right-of-way through traffic signals on access routes leading to the campus, and would fund safety-related projects, according to the fire district.
"This is a win for everybody," Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman said.
If the company builds a new second campus at the Bayfront Expressway site, Facebook is projected to provide an additional $100,000 to $200,000 in annual property taxes to the district.
The benefits from the agreement would go "beyond dollars and cents" and is an important step in building a relationship between Facebook and the community, Chief Schapelhouman said.
