According to a recent plan submitted to the city of Cupertino, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is planning a massive expansion over the next three years. Already the city's largest taxpayer, the company is apparently expecting to grow its employee base by 7,400 employees in an effort to fill the new 3.4 million square foot facility that is in the works. The move indicates CEO Tim Cook feels confident and should give shareholders something to be excited about.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses these developments and how the move by Apple could impact shareholders and the city of Cupertino.
