Mountain View neighborhoods

Each neighborhood has its own story

From an early stagecoach stop and agricultural center, Mountain View has grown since its incorporation in 1902 to a thriving city of 81,400-plus residents in the heart of Silicon Valley. Internationally known corporations make Mountain View their home, swelling the daytime population to more than 100,000.

Today, Mountain View neighborhoods are as varied as the housing types, with single-family, townhouses, multifamily and mobile homes. About 41 percent are owner-occupied.

Encompassing 12 square miles, Mountain View is surrounded by Palo Alto, Los Altos and Sunnyvale. Highways 101, 85 and 237, as well as light rail and Caltrain, offer quick access to the rest of the Bay Area.

Mountain View's diversified population enjoys superb recreation and arts facilities, including Shoreline Park and the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.

The stories of the people and the neighborhoods they live in make up Mountain View, and you can read about them all in the most recent Neighborhoods publication or through the links below.

My dog and I enjoyed many hours exploring Bayfront Park - and its ground squirrels, marine life, birds, children, grown-ups, and other dogs. In my opinion, using unannounced poison to eradicate animals who had found a home in a public park is horrifying. We have no information at all about how many other living, breathing creatures have been affected, and will continue to be affected. This is "our" government?

At least the state has decided to be a little generous with some environment(and it's inhabitants-excluding the Natives)in the central coast. Maybe someday the state will do something for the few natives left in the west coast who do have a significant contribution to share with the general public of this state.Long Live The Ohlone People of the Central Coast Bays and all.
Shururu,
Blessings and Thank you all for your consideration to not forget about us.

concerning the Santiago Mobile Home Park. I live in the Sahara Mobile Home Park. We got a letter saying that there would be inspections of each lot but it wasn't threatening letter. The same people run both parks what are they doing? We need to keep on top of this.
