Whether you’re new to the area or a longtime Mountain View resident, this year’s Info Mountain View offers a feast of learning about your community. Wonder how many Mountain View residents walk to work or when Google started city-wide Wi-Fi? The answers lie within.

Whole chapters are devoted to kids, with information on child care centers and sports leagues, as well as education, both public and private. Another focuses on recreation, with hundreds of options for biking, hiking, sailing or enjoying parks. To contact a member of the Mountain View City Council or for information on boards and commissions, turn to the Public Officials section. In addition to the thousands of listings inside, you can visit www. mv-voice.com and find even more. Online you’ll also find information about our surrounding communities, including Palo Alto, Stanford and Menlo Park, as well as others in our region. Our cover photo this year — an egret in flight over Shorebird Way — was shot by Staff Photographer Michelle Le. Michelle Le

If you’ve got content suggestions for next year, please email editor@ mv-voice.com. We appreciate your feedback.
