Google’s Growth Unsettles Mountain View by the Wall Street Journal reports on the tension growing between Google and the city they have grown up in, Mountain View.
As Google continues to grow and require more space, Mountain View needs to expand with them. City council member Laura Macias told the Wall Street Journal “we may not develop as much as Google wants.”
Mountain View is a region that has lots of greener, wildlife and is not city-like. Google is interested in building bridges, recreation facilities, corporate housing and more offices. This will result in high density populations and lead to a different culture and life-style in the region, Several city council members in Mountain View are not happy about it.
A Google spokesman told the Wall Street Journal: “In the 12 years that Mountain View has been our home, we’ve worked with the city to give back to the community. We look forward to continuing this relationship well into the future.”
