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.

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.

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 -



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.

A conceptual plan has been developed for a new community garden at the southwest corner of Shoreline Boulevard and Latham Street.  On May 8, the City Council approved the conceptual plan.  The next step in the project is completing the design documents for construction planned for early 2019.


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.
