NBC Bay Area interviewed SV@Home Deputy Director Pilar Lorenzana for their segment about the Mountain View City Council’s decision to approve the North Bayshore precise plan, including 9,850 homes, 20% of which will be affordable. The city council’s decision is a significant victory for affordable housing in Silicon Valley. The 20% affordability requirement will create 1,970 units, more than doubling Mountain View’s supply of subsidized affordable housing, which currently stands at 1,197. It is also a significant victory for SV@Home, which has been advocating for the approval of the North Bayshore plan with strong and realistic affordability requirements at countless city council meetings over the last two years.
