About the City of Mountain View
Nestled between the Santa Cruz Mountains and San Francisco Bay, Mountain View is located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, just 10 miles north of San Jose and 35 miles south of San Francisco. The City is home to just under 75,000 residents and to many nationally and internationally known corporations. Mountain View covers 12 square miles, with an average elevation of 97 feet. The City enjoys an average of 106 days of clear skies each year. Daytime temperatures are moderate, often in the fifties and sixties in the winter and the seventies and eighties in the summertime.

Mountain View is a modern, high-tech city operating under a council/manager form of government, with a 7-member City Council. While Mountain View is keeping pace with new ideas and innovations, the City is also committed to the traditional values of strong neighborhoods and citizen involvement. Mountain View is made up of a variety of distinct, locally organized neighborhood and homeowners associations that help identify our community's needs and shape the City's future. The City of Mountain View's mission is to provide quality services and facilities that meet the needs of a caring and diverse community in a financially responsible manner. The organization's established values are:

* Provide exceptional service *
* Act with integrity *
* Treat others with respect *

In recent years, the City of Mountain View has developed some of the finest recreation facilities the Bay Area has to offer. The City's extensive City park system not only provides an outstanding array of neighborhood parks, but includes an innovative regional park created from reclaimed landfill. Shoreline-at-Mountain View Park, built along San Francisco Bay, features an 18-hole golf course, a sailing lake and a wild life interpretive trail. The Civic Center, built around downtown's Pioneer Park, has one of the finest theater facilities in Northern California as well as a new, 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art library.
