Mayor's Welcome

Welcome From the Mayor of Mountain View

Welcome to Mountain View! We are a diverse, vibrant city in the heart of Silicon Valley. Whether you live or work in our community – or even if you are simply visiting – we are ready and willing to assist you. We especially appreciate hearing from our residents, who often have great suggestions, new ideas and valuable input on issues of concern.

Our city is just over 12 square miles and home to more than 83,000 residents while our daytime population exceeds 125,000. The size and population of Mountain View may be modest, but we have a significant role regionally and globally as the center of innovation for Silicon Valley and home to both prominent tech companies and hundreds of startups. Our vibrant downtown draws people from all over the world to visit its shops and restaurants. Our wonderful parks and network of trails delight people of all ages. As the birthplace of Silicon Valley, there are plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in the history of the technology industry and visit historic landmarks.
