City Project Highlights


The Public Works Department is working on a wide variety of capital projects such as City buildings, roadway improvements, parks, and utilities.  Projects are underway in various phases such as planning, studies, design, and/or construction.  A report has been prepared to provide status information on a portion of the active Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects.  Please click on this link to view the latest Quarterly CIP Project Highlights report.  If you have any questions about the projects, please call (650) 903-6311.


The Mountain View Library is currently being remodeled.  In the 20 years since the building was constructed, the community’s use of the public library has changed.  Library services are evolving from primarily providing reading materials to becoming community gathering places for learning and skill development.  As a result, more space is needed for programs, classes, and studying.  Also, the building is often at capacity so more study areas and seating are needed.  If you would like to learn more about the project and impacts to library services, please click here. The grand opening of the newly- renovated and expanded Children's Room is scheduled for Saturday, June 16 at 10 a.m.

Permanente Creek Trail Extension

The newest extension of the Permanente Creek Trail between Rock Street and Middlefield Road, adjacent to Crittenden Middle School, is now open to the public. Please join us for a community celebration on Saturday, June 23 at 10 a.m.


Construction activities for the Community Center Remodel Project as well as a related project that includes a new traffic signal, driveway and various off-site utilities at Rengstorff and Stanford Avenues have begun.

A temporary construction fence was installed along Rengstorff Avenue that enclosed the site around the existing community center and its parking lot. This fence is necessary to secure the site and ensure safety of the public during construction. 

Please do not attempt to enter the site or park your car in the southwestern parking lot off of Rengstorff Avenue until construction is completed and the fence is removed.

The Community Center Remodel and site improvements phase construction began late August 2017 and will be completed in early 2019.

The traffic signal and right-of-way utilities phase of the project has also commenced, so please be on the lookout for temporary traffic control signs, equipment and construction personnel along South Rengstorff Avenue near the Stanford and Leland Avenue intersections.

*There will be minor utility work on Crisanto Ave as well as part of this project.

 Castro Street Median Islands Landscape Improvements

The City will be improving the median islands on Castro Street between California Street and City Hall.  The proposed plans are shown here. The project is scheduled to start construction this summer.  For more information, please contact Jakob Trconic, Forestry and Roadway Manager, at (650) 903-6326.


On May 8, City Council approved a conceptual plan for a new community garden at the southwest corner of Shoreline Boulevard and Latham Street. The next steps in the project are to determine a name for the new garden and to complete design documents for construction. Construction is expected to beginning in early 2019.

The City is seeking community input for the name of the garden. City staff will present suggested names to the Parks and Recreation Commission at their meeting on September 12 and make a recommendation.

The following criteria shall be used in determining park names to be submitted to City Council for consideration:

•  A City park may be named for the school on which it is located or an adjacent street.

• City parks may be named after a local landmark or a historical figure. The historical figure must be deceased for a minimum of five years.

• Other park names will be considered only if the naming criteria listed above does not provide a name suitable for a park or recreation facility.

• The entire City Council Policy, Naming of City Parks and other City Facilities, may be found here.

Please send any suggestions for the garden name to Anne Marie Starr by Thursday, August 2.

The proposed project will construct a dedicated center-running reversible bus lane and improve pedestrian and bicyclist facilities on Shoreline Boulevard between Middlefield Road and Pear Avenue. The project would improve the flow of buses along the Shoreline Boulevard corridor and would not eliminate any existing vehicle lanes. Water and sewer pipelines on Shoreline Boulevard between Middlefield Road and Highway 101 will also be replaced.

For more information on the project, please view the presentation discussed at a community meeting on July 26, 2016.

Bicycle Boulevard Project - Latham & Church Streets

The Latham/Church Street study corridor has been identified as a proposed Class III Bicycle Boulevard in the City's Bike Plan.  The purpose of this study is to develop a conceptual plan for designing and implementing a Bicycle Boulevard along the Latham-Church corridor.  The study will review motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian and collection, community outreach, conceptual plans including proposed striping, traffic calming, and intersection treatments, proposed Bicycle Boulevard wayfinding and signage, and cost estimates.

On February 15, the Council Transportation Committee reviewed the project and staff presented the feasibility study to the City Council on May 15; the presentation can be found here.
