If you support housing in Mountain View’s North Bayshore, please attend the Balanced Mountain View general meeting at 7 pm on Tuesday, March 12 in the Maple Room at the newly remodeled Mountain View Community Center on Rengstorff.
We formed the Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View five years ago to promote the development of housing in North Bayshore, and that vision evolved into the complete neighborhoods written into the North Bayshore Precise Plan. But as Pat Showalter says, “You can’t sleep in a plan.”
That plan is at risk. Because Google and Sywest could not agree on a joint master plan for the Gateway area, also known as Shoreline Commons, city staff has gone back to the drawing boards. Housing development, of a reduced number of units, on Google property appears to have stalled, and there are inadequate plans at this point for housing on Sywest property and in the Pear Neighborhood.
Please join us on March 12 to create a strategy for getting the North Bayshore job done.
