Welcome to the City of Mountain View’s Website!

This is the City's key link to important information about the Mountain View community and all that the City has to offer to residents, business, and visitors alike.

Mountain View is ideally situated in the heart of Silicon Valley.  It is home to just under 75,000 residents and is known for its diverse community and great quality of life.  We are a vibrant community of good schools, safe neighborhoods, and excellent public facilities and amenities, including over 35 parks and an extensive trail system.  The City has a wide spectrum of businesses, including many nationally and internationally known high-tech corporations and institutions.  Mountain View enjoys a rich offering of cultural events, the Center for the Performing Arts, the Mountain View Public Library, live music at the Shoreline Amphitheatre, and Thursday Nights Live, as well as an annual Art & Wine Festival, A La Carte and Art Festival, the Annual Spring Downtown Parade, and a weekly Farmer's Market in a rich and diverse Downtown Mountain View.
