“Cupetino city officials Thursday night held a public meeting to start the Environmental Reveiw process for a new home for Apple,” KTVU reports.

“Apple’s plans call for a 3.1 million square foot building – four stories high and round,” KTVU reports. “People broke up into smaller groups Thursday night to talk about issues that should be included in the Environmental Impact Report. Cupertino officials will incorporate those ideas into a draft Environmental Impact Report that will then undergo further public review.”
