Mountain View Resiliency Roundtable


The Mountain View community, along with the rest of the world, has experienced an unprecedented public health crisis that none of us could have ever imagined.  On March 12, the City declared a state of emergency, and on March 17, the entire Bay Area began sheltering in place. In two short months, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, how we deliver services, and how we gather together as a community.

Many of us have been operating in crisis mode, working diligently to identify and gather resources, and redirect them to the most impacted and vulnerable residents in our community.  While this continues to be critical and important work, it is also important to for us to begin planning for the phased recovery from the current pandemic, and look towards the future to ensure our continued resilience. For that reason, the City is initiating a collaborative dialogue with a diverse array of stakeholders in our community to plan for our recovery. 

The roundtable consists of stakeholders from multiple sectors in the community to come together to provide ideas, share information, and leverage resources for identifying community action steps to support Mountain View’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Resiliency Roundtable Scope

The scope of the roundtable is to answer the following questions:

  • What challenges and opportunities do you see for our community?
  • Where could our collective efforts be focused in the months and years ahead?

The roundtable will be time-limited, meeting monthly beginning June 3, 2020 through October 2021.
