Intel under fire for green belt development

Wilma, there's a problem in Bed Rock

Local newspaper, the Austin American Statesman, is reporting that Intel representatives have defended their plans to build a so-called Supercampus in a green area of the Texan city. A representative of Intel was invited by local ginger group Save our Springs Alliance to respond to environmentalists claims that its Supercampus plans will have a negative effect on the Barton Creek Green Belt. The SOS Alliance is concerned that building activities in the Austin area will upset the ecological balance of the area. The public hearing, ostensibly about a new gas pipeline, became overheated, as local residents sought to protect the area from a spate of new developments. ® Save Our Springs Alliance homepage
