Environmentalists not happy with AMD's plans

Posted on Friday, September 23 2005 @ 10:35:28 CEST by

AMD announced in April it will move 2,000 employees from existing offices in East and North Austin to proposed new offices to be built by Stratus Properties in Southwest Austin, in the fragile Barton Springs watershed of the Edwards Aquifer.

About 2,900 people could work in this area but environmentalists fear AMD is going to pollute Austin's crown jewels and rip out the sould of the city. They claim AMD's move threatens endangered species and will harm a beauty spot for humans too.
AMD has been a good corporate citizen in Austin for twenty five years, locating its facilities in our Desired Development Zone. Many other companies respect Barton Springs and city planning by locating in the Desired Development Zone, including Dell, IBM, CSC, Lockheed, and more. These companies chose not to build in the fragile Barton Springs watershed..

Now, AMD and CEO Hector Ruiz are planning on reversing their years of responsible growth by moving exactly where our community has said major employers should not locate - the Barton Springs watershed.
