Engaging the North Bayshore community
Since submitting our Master Plan application to the City of Mountain View in 2021, we’ve been working closely with the community and the City to gather feedback to inform the evolution of the North Bayshore Master Plan. Our intent is to create three neighborhoods that reflect the community’s values and interests for years to come.
