Cupertino to hold Wednesday environmental impact meeting for Campus 2

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Tue June 25, 2013

Public to get chance to comment on issues like deforestation

The City of Cupertino is scheduled to host a public meeting Wednesday on the environmental impact of Apple's upcoming "spaceship" campus, officially known as Campus 2. The meeting starts at 6:30PM at the Cupertino Community Hall, and will offer the public an opportunity to raise questions or argue for or against changes. People who can't attend in person will be able to watch a live stream or submit comments online.

Posted comments are already available for viewing on the web. While some support Apple, others are concerned. "We are concerned about the fate of the trees in and around the new Apple Campus," one post reads. "A couple of months ago, we met a man who claimed he was an arborist hired by Apple and that he planned to chop down 6000 trees on the Campus and around the streets with replacements of new trees. We don't know it has been confirmed by the Apple Campus 2 or not.

"These trees have been living in our neighborhood for more than 40 years(?) -- when we moved into this area in 1989, they were already quite big. And we enjoy so much of these beautiful trees -- they give us shade in summer and they make our streets much enjoyable while walking along. Especially they improve our environment and give us clean air. Please let these trees happily live in our neighborhood with us and our children and children's children. Many thanks," the message concludes.
