OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE MOUNTAIN VIEW
THE MOST LIVABLE CITY IN CALIFORNIA
We are an all-volunteer group of residents, who are pro-growth-if-it’s-smart-growth with complete communities, in Mountain View. We want to grow downtown into a beautiful and livable working city that shows respect to our heritage.
We promote maintaining downtown as an important resource which draws people from MV and surrounding communities to walk its streets and enjoy its restaurants and diversity of small shops.
We raise awareness of the aesthetic value of MV’s historic downtown buildings and how they are an irreplaceable element to the downtown beauty.
Downtown MV is quickly losing its character
- Heritage being lost/forgotten; there are no incentives or protections like other cities have
- Landowners and developers are cashing out at the expense of the local community
- Building mix is changing quickly in of favor office spaces and high rent
- Lack of a robust planning process and an outdated downtown precise plan are leading a progressive and successful city down a path of mediocrity
