Tesla Gigafactory Texas sprawls over 2,000 acres and may prove to be a key component of the Austin City Council’s development initiatives in the area. The Austin City Council held a meeting on November 12 and approved a resolution for the development of East Austin. Tesla Giga Texas’s ecological paradise would fit perfectly in East Austin’s changing environment. The Council’s resolution tasked City Manager Spencer Cronk to create a broad, long-term development plan to support East Austin’s growth and potential of economic development. “(This resolution) brings some much needed focus to a long-neglected part of East Austin that’s basically on the precipice of really experiencing considerable growth,” said Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison. “This is our opportunity to really get it right and get ahead of unfettered growth with more proactive action in this area.” In drone operator Joe Tegtmeyer’s recent video, he noticed a large clearing across State Highway 130, which was part of the land Tesla purchased for Gigafactory Texas. Workers started working on that part of Giga Texas’ massive land area in August and early September, but Tegtmeyer said that activities in the location started ramping this past week.
