Apple moves a step closer to building new Cupertino campus

Holiday Sale over 400  deals“Apple Inc. is one step closer to building a second campus in Cupertino after waiting eight months for city planners to rezone its 7.78-acre property on Pruneridge Avenue to allow office use,” Matt Wilson reports for The Cupertino Courier.

“The planning commission has unanimously voted on Monday to rezone the high-tech company’s property on Pruneridge to planned development industrial and residential, clearing the first hurdle for the construction of a new campus there,” Wilson reports.

“The property is part of nine separate properties that Apple purchased at the Pruneridge site for an approximately 50-acre campus, Apple CEO Steve Jobs told the Cupertino council during a surprise visit on April 18, 2006, when he announced the purchase of properties at the Pruneridge site,” Wilson reports.

  1. Government inaction! Or is it, government in action? Don’t worry comrades, it’s getting a lot worse. The Mighty O will make sure of that. Unless he becomes the Mighty 0.

    Eight months in the hands of gummint jerk-offs – Ridiculous!

  2. Hmm I remember seeing that meeting back in 06. The officials said that they welcomed Apple expanding their presence there and would do what was needed to help. Seems helping takes 3 years!

    Almost as dumb as the droid adverts and ron.

  3. You know guys, ron’s an easy target for his knee-jerk politics, but he’s got a point. Eight months is a long time for bureaucrats to hmm and haa over a rezoning issue. Government entities tend to take a long time doing anything. This isn’t always bad (when radically changing the Constitution and things like that), but the red tape regulation genuinely slows down productivity.

    I’d love to visit Apple headquarters some day. I hear they have an excellent icon garden…

    I’ve been to the mothership a few times, and the icon garden is gone. Probably re-zoned! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />
