City poised for huge office growth DEVELOPMENT BRINGING AS MANY AS 42,500 NEW WORKERS, LITTLE HOUSING TO MOUNTAIN VIEW By Daniel DeBolt

Council wrestles with gridlock DOWNTOWN TRANSIT STATION OVERWHELMED BY EMPLOYEE SHUTTLES
n a city where job growth never seems to quit, a growing number of workers commuting to Mountain View is causing a problem. In a study session Tuesday, April 8, it was revealed that more than a few of the city’s streets have recently reached the
lowest possible grade for traffic — an “F” — while the downtown transit station is seeing 57 different employee shuttle services during rush hour, lining Evelyn Avenue and using space in the station’s bus turnout. Council members were surprised to learn that many of
the shuttles don’t even serve Mountain View, prompting council member Ronit Bryant to suggest they be charged a use fee. Cupertino-based Apple and Los Gatos-based Netflix are among the compaSee TRAFFIC, page 8
n analysis by the Voice shows that explosive office development is knocking on Mountain View’s door, bringing as many as 42,550 new office workers who will be driving on the area’s freeways and competing for the city’s increasingly expensive and scarce housing. An examination of office projects in the works finds 834,000 square feet of additional office space under construction in the city, with an additional 1.3 million square feet proposed. With this alone, the city could add 16,400 employees to Mountain View’s job count in the coming years. That number more than doubles if you include the 3.4 million square feet of new offices (space for 26,150 additional jobs) being considered for the area around Google’s headquarters, North Bayshore. It could soon see in a major redevelopment when a North Bayshore “precise plan” is approved by the council at the end of the year. “It’s kind of scary — it’s like there’s a glacier headed in our
direction. It’s not going to hit us right away but it’s almost too late to stop it,” said resident Lenny Siegel of the office growth in the pipeline. Siegel has been raising concerns about the city’s jobshousing balance since the 1970s and is now founder of the “Campaign for a Balanced Mountain View” which seeks to sway the City Council to allow housing development in North Bayshore to balance the city’s job growth. “Once they start hiring people in all this office space — and right now they are hiring pretty fast — the impact in housing, transportation and our quality of life will be enormous,” Siegel said. In a city that currently has about 34,500 homes and about 69,000 jobs, the city’s zoning has historically allowed for more job space than housing, and the city’s new general plan will make the trend more extreme — it has zoned for a maximum of about 7,000 new homes in Mountain View by 2030, largely as the El Camino Real and San Antonio Road corridors See OFFICE, page 7
Guardsmen rescue sick baby at sea By Kevin Forestieri
Moffett Field-based team of Air National Guardsmen rescued a seriously ill 1-year-old baby and her family from a sailboat 1,000 miles off the coast of Baja California early Sunday morning. The rescue team continued to provide support for the family aboard the USS Vandergrift when it reached San Diego on Wednesday
morning, April 9. Last Thursday, April 3, a fourman Guardian Angel team of the 129th Rescue Wing parachuted into the water near the Rebel Heart, a 36-foot boat, to provide medical attention for the sick baby on board. It turned out that all four family members required rescue from the Rebel Heart, which was adrift and would take on water when the engine was used. “The ship was unable to
steer, maneuver and had lost communication,” said 2nd Lt. Roderick B. Bersamina of the 129th Rescue Wing. The parents, Charlotte and Eric Kaufman, planned to sail the world with their two children, according to a report from the Associated Press. But two weeks into the trip, their daughter Lyra became ill, and shortly after that, the boat lost See AIR RESCUE, page 12

INDECENT EXPOSURE TO KIDS Police received a report that a man in the parking lot of SummerWinds Nursery exposed himself in front of a mother and her two small children on April 5 at 5:26 p.m. The woman and her children, ages 2 and 4, had been shopping at the garden center, and were leaving when they encountered a man in the parking lot smiling at the mother. The 4-year-old told the mother that the man had exposed his genitals, according to Sgt. Saul Jaeger of the Mountain View Police Department. A witness saw the man run away onto Steven’s Creek Trail, and he was not found after a search that included the use of a police dog. The suspect was described as a white male in his mid- to late30s with black hair, a black beard and wearing a gray baseball cap. Police say detectives will be following up on the case.

School drug forum informs, shocks parents PARENTS LEFT WONDERING ABOUT SOLUTIONS By Kevin Forestieri
Michael Streck-Woodward, the new head coach of Mountain View High School’s track and field team, advises Cannon Wong on April 4.
New track coach inspires students MOUNTAIN VIEW HIGH HOPES NEW COACH WILL END INSTABILITY By Kevin Forestieri
ichael Streck-Woodard, has had a commanding presence as Mountain View High’s track and field coach since last February. And with good reason. Wrangling a roster of 121 students and program with a history of instability, it is no surprise that school officials sought some strong leadership from a coach that students describe as motivational, enthusiastic and
a little intense. Streck-Woodard is a Bay Area native, who attended Humboldt State University where he got a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science. He was hired in last May by Shelley Smith, the athletic director at Mountain View High, to work in the strength and conditioning program for the football team. Smith said that Streck-Woodard seemed like a great fit for the job; he had good experience, was on the
track and football team in college and was a personal trainer for 24-Hour Fitness. “We also liked his philosophy and his approach to our philosophy,” Smith said. Toward the end of the summer, Smith still needed to fill two positions, including head coach for the track team. The track team has had problems with instability in the past because it has been difficult to See TRACK COACH, page 14
County launches suicide-prevention campaign on bus billboards By Elena Kadvany
he Santa Clara County Mental Health Department this week launched a campaign to raise awareness about suicide prevention, displaying on 16 Valley Transportation Authority buses the message “Give up? Not on your life” with the phone number for the county’s suicide and crisis hotline written underneath. Depending on the bus route, the message reads in English, Spanish, Vietnamese or Chinese.
“More people die from suicide than from homicide in Santa Clara County,” Nancy Pena, director of the Santa Clara County Mental Health Department, said in a press release. “While every death is tragic, we know when it comes to suicide, these deaths are preventable.” In 2013 there were 149 suicides and 56 homicides in Santa Clara County, according to the press release. “The people who died from suicide came from every city in our county, all income levels, and
a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds,” the press release states. “The ages of people who died from suicide ranged from 15 years old to 93 years old.” “No matter what problems a person is dealing with, Hotline crisis counselors want to help them find a reason to keep living,” said Vic Ojakian, co-chair of the county’s Suicide Prevention Oversight Committee. “Things can change and no one has to suffer in silence.

redevelop. The general plan also estimated that there would only be 82,230 jobs by 2030, a number which will clearly be surpassed in the coming years. “What were they thinking?” Siegel asks. It might be easy to point the finger at the City Council — which has opposed housing in North Bayshore, didn’t have a discussion about balanced growth over the four years (2008-2012) that the city’s general plan was being developed and passed on an alternative plan that would have allowed 16,000 new households in the city instead of just 7,000. But Siegel notes that “the council bends to public input” and on Tuesday it appeared that was happening. A majority of the council at the April 8 meeting expressed major reservations about approving a 1-million-square-foot office project at 700 East Middlefield Road which could add more than 5,000 employees from an unnamed company to Mountain View (it is being built for asset management firm Deutsche Wealth & Asset Management). It included four buildings as tall as eight stories, and a parking garage with 3,118 spaces. “We are building something for people who don’t live here, don’t work here,” said council member Jac Siegel of the project. “If we build enough, it’s not going to be Mountain View anymore. We are basically changing the character of our city significantly.” Council members eventually decided to have developer Sares

One million square feet of office space was proposed for 700 E. Middlefield Road, one of many large development projects for Mountain View.
Regis scale back the project by 25 percent to address the project’s impacts, which apparently took Dave Hopkins of Sares Regis by surprise. He said the company had invested quite a bit of time and money on the project, including a 3-D tour of the project on a special screen wheeled into the plaza conference room Tuesday. “You took a risk,” council member Margaret Abe-Koga told Hopkins. “Things change, that’s why we’re here.” Council members Ronit Bryant and Abe Koga revealed that they actually thought it would be better to build some housing on the 24-acre site at 700 East Middlefield, with Abe-Koga mentioning “all the pressure we’re getting about (housing in) North Bayshore” and the fact that it may be easier to build housing in East Whisman, as it is closer to schools and services. Abe-Koga is one of three council members who opposed housing in North Bayshore who are leaving the council this year
due to term limits. “People are now just waiting for us to leave,” Abe-Koga said of herself, Bryant and Jac Siegel. Office job numbers in this story were calculated using the latest list of projects posted on the city’s economic development web page, along with projects not listed: 400,000 square feet in Merlone Geier’s phase two at San Antonio shopping center; 150,000 square feet of office at the city’s “Moffett Gateway” site; 500,000 square feet of office at the former Mayfield Mall site. It also subtracted the square footage of older office buildings being replaced in some cases. The council’s reduction to the Sares Regis project was not included. Employee numbers were calculated at 130 square feet per employee, within a range now commonly used, as indicated by City Council members and architect Thomas Yee at the April 8 council meeting.

Nelson Nygaard. The study session focused on how to get downtown train station users to Google headquarters and the surrounding North Bayshore, a 1.5-mile trip on infamously gridlocked Shoreline Boulevard. The trip is said to be taken by 900 to 1000 transit users a day. Proposals from the consultant showed improved bike-ways up Stierlin Road and Shoreline Boulevard, as well as a dedicated transit lane on North Shoreline Boulevard and bypass bridges over Highway 101 to prevent shuttles from being stuck in Shoreline Boulevard gridlock near the Highway 101 offramps. Also proposed was a raised walkway over Central Expressway from the train station for cyclists en route to North Bayshore and shuttle riders, who may one day be picked up at shuttle stations on the north side of the expressway to alleviate gridlock at the downtown transit station. Some frustrations were expressed by council members and others about whether such measures were enough. â€œWe arenâ€™t going to solve the enormous traffic problem we have by putting in more transit and bike lanes,â€? said Lenny Siegel, founder of a campaign to balance Mountain Viewâ€™s job growth with housing growth so employees can live near their jobs. â€œI think we need to be more imaginative. It looks like we are rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.â€? For the first time Tuesday, Google went on record supporting personal rapid transit (PRT), the controversial automated people-mover technology in which council members have expressed both a serious interest â€” and more recently â€” major skepticism. Council member John Inks stressed that the idea wasnâ€™t dead yet. â€œMost of the study devoted to applications of existing technologies,â€? said Kevin Mathy Googleâ€™s transportation manager. â€œWe need to have an eye towards PRT systems and self-driving cars that are coming closer to fruition in

the U.S. every day.” Mathy also suggested the “reconstruction of Shoreline offramps” at Highway 101, presumably so that shuttles can avoid Shoreline Boulevard traffic and fixes for “Caltrain beyond (the) 2019 electrification process.” He said Google “applauds” the proposals so far, especially the bridge crossings and transit lanes, “but we hope that the study (examines) extending these lanes to HOV (high occupancy vehicle) users. People who carpool should be recognized for that effort.” Google has already made a major effort to reduce car traffic, and city officials report that solo vehicle trips are already low — representing only about 60 percent of all North Bayshore commute trips. The city’s goal is to reduce it to 45 percent. “I was hoping this study would make bicycling so attractive that Google would have bicyclists coming from all around,” said Google employee and Mountain View homeowner Aldona Majorek. She added that new bike lanes should be

as safe as possible. “Please don’t just design it for adults. It should be safe enough for my 10-year-old to go on and not be too scared,” she said. Consultants said there are now several hundred bicyclists who ride from the transit center to North Bayshore, and that the number would have to go to 1,000 or 1,500 to meet city goals. Two different proposals were presented for alleviating the bottleneck on Shoreline Boulevard at Highway 101. One showed a new dedicated shuttle lane running up the center of Shoreline Boulevard, reversible in direction, combined with a new bridge from Terra Bella Avenue over 101 for transit, bicyclists and pedestrians, making use of Caltrans property and some private property on the south and north sides of the freeway. Another option showed the bridge alongside a second
new bridge allowing shuttles and pedestrians to go both north and south while bypassing the gridlock on the existing 101 bridge. As for the shuttle traffic at the transit station, council member Ronit Bryant said she saw many shuttles with only a few people in them, as the goal appears to be to meet at least every bullet train that arrives at the station. “One small Intuit van was completely full. The others were much much bigger and there were two to three people inside,” Bryant said. She said she believed that the new Mountain View Transit Management Agency, which major employers are forming to share shuttles and other car trip reduction efforts, would help solve the transit station shuttle problem and “will actually bring relief to the downtown pretty much instantaneously.”
“Once we have the TMA I think that problem is solved,” Bryant said. Council member Mike Kasperzak, who once called himself “the pod car mayor” adamantly raised the issues of pod cars (PRT). Council members backed away from the idea a few weeks ago, expressing concerns about helping to fund the development of a high-tech PRT system under development at NASA Ames called SkyTran. He said the city could have a system based on existing technology up and running in as little as five years, as it costs significantly less per mile than light rail. “There’s at least four around the world,” he said of existing systems, including one that’s operated in Morgantown, West Virginia since 1975. “We can find out what they’re doing. If we don’t start talking about this now we’re going to be making blind
decisions without really knowing what our options are.” Council member Bryant opposed the idea, saying she doubted that her neighbors would “look happily at elevated PRT systems. The technology sounds exciting — it’s almost like science fiction. But think of what it basically is. It may not be that positive.” She raised the example of PRT at Heathrow Airport in London, saying “Heathrow is not a ‘sit down with a cup of coffee and enjoy the garden’” kind of place. “This is our city and it’s not an obvious solution.” Consultants said they would return with more proposals and by the end of the year present a complete plan for mitigating traffic from North Bayshore, with a goal of reducing solo car trips to 45 percent. City Manager Dan Rich said that there will also be estimates on general transit costs, including a request for how much it could cost to extend light rail from the NASA station to North Bayshore.

-PDBM/FXT Attention: Google Mountain View WiFi Users Mountain View has been a great home to Google, and to the thousands of Googlers who live here. That’s why we’re working with city leaders to provide better WiFi in several outdoor locations throughout Mountain View. The original Google WiFi network is old and doesn’t work well. So, on May 3rd, we are going to shut down the old network and start building a brand new public, outdoor WiFi network along the Castro Street corridor.

steering and communication. Bersamina said the U.S. Coast Guard received a distress message from the Rebel Heart early Thursday saying that an infant on the ship had become ill and needed medical attention shortly before the ship lost communication. The rescue team did not know the exact location of the ship, and used a combat aircraft’s emergency electronic beacon to find it. The Guardian Angel team
reached the ship that night at about 7 p.m. The Guardian Angel team was able to provide medical aid and stabilize the child aboard the Rebel Heart, which Bersamina said was the first priority of the rescue team. Both the Guardian Angel team and the family stayed aboard the Rebel Heart until Sunday morning, when they were picked up by the USS Vandergrift, a U.S. Navy frigate. Although the Guardian Angel team stabilized the infant and helped transfer the family onto the Vandergrift, their job is
still not done. Bersamina said the team is responsible for providing care to the one-year-old throughout the entire rescue until they reach a medical facility. The 129th Rescue Wing is an Air National Guard unit based at Moffett Field that performs military and civilian searchand-rescue missions, including the rescue of distressed people aboard ships, lost hikers and disaster response. The unit is credited with saving the lives of more than 1,000 people, according to a press release by the 129th Rescue Wing. V

fill the position with a long-term coach, he said. “We had a lot of turnover with our track people,” Smith said, adding that the situation was a cause for concern for parents. Streck-Woodard seemed to be the best fit for the job, and so far things are working out, according to Smith. Unlike most high school athletics, track involves a large number of students who compete in events like the hurdling, sprints, throws and jumps. This makes it hard to manage as a coach without the help of a few assistant coaches. “For track, you really need four or even five assistant coaches to split things up,” Smith said. Streck-Woodard has three assistants, one of whom is his father,
Chris Woodard. Woodard is a battalion chief for the Palo Alto Fire Depa r t ment and volunteers his time as an Michael Streckassistant coach. Woodward Woodard used to coach track in Oklahoma, and held unofficial records there for the long jump and triple jump. Despite the large roster, people who visit the track practice will find Streck-Woodard working one-on-one with students, helping them with their form and technique. The team has been successful so far this year. Smith said the team did well at a meet in Palo Alto last month, especially the boys varsity. Streck-Woodard said the girls junior varsity team has also improved a lot this spring.

Beyond their success this season, track students have come to like “Coach Mike.” “He’s really connected with the team, and charismatic,” said Kolisa Nhlapo, a sprinter and hurdler on the girls varsity team. Nhlapo has been on the track team for four years, and said the coaches have switched a lot in the past. Krysta Korpontinos, a varsity sprinter in her third year of track, said Streck-Woodard sometimes connects with the students off the field by coming to what she called “pasta parties,” where students load up on pasta and salad the night before a meet. After the track season, Smith said Streck-Woodard will continue to work on campus during the summer and into the fall as an assistant coach for the wide receivers and defensive backs on the football team.

RALLYING SUPPORT TO REOPEN SCHOOLS Neighborhood representatives in northeast Mountain View are prepared to lay out several proposals at the next Mountain View Whisman School Board meeting, requesting that trustees to consider reopening the Whisman and Slater elementary schools, which were closed several years ago. Jessica Gandhi, president of the North Whisman Neighborhood Association, said she is asking residents in the area between Route 85, Route 237 and Highway 101 to come to the school board meeting to show their support for a neighborhood school. Gandhi said the board members have not talked about the details for reopening the schools and have not done the research, citing a lack of public support. Gandhi said she hopes the turnout is high at the board meeting so they can prove the public support exists. Since the closure of Slater in 2006, there have been no public schools in the northeastern area of the city. Greg Coladonato, a Mountain View resident in favor of re-opening the campuses, said their goal is to persuade the superintendent and board members to research the proposals. The Mountain View Whisman School District board meeting starts at 6 p.m. at 750-A San Pierre Way on Thursday, April 17. â€”Kevin Forestieri

for parents to know about some of the hardcore or “designer” drugs out on the market, Foster said the take-home message should not be that their kids are at risk of taking bath salts or krokodil. Parents should be more worried about the more commonly abused substances: marijuana, alcohol and pharmaceutical drugs. Foster said it’s important for parents to also avoid being alarmist. One of the videos in the presentation showed a mother that discovered her child had drugs delivered to their home, and immediately took them in to the police. “Don’t go straight to alarm and reactivity,” Foster said. “Parents need to investigate. After gathering information,

find out if they need a therapist or substance abuse specialist.” Near the end of the presentation, Cooper suggested that parents look through the messages on their children’s cellphones to see if they are taking drugs. “Look at your teen’s cellphone. Look at it! It’s your phone plan,” Cooper said. Foster said that if parents want to teach their children to be open and honest about possible substance abuse, spying on their cellphones and snooping around for information will not help, and teens will feel betrayed. “If you’re going to do that, be ready for the repercussions,” Foster said. Although a number of parents at the presentation repeated the mantra, “You are their parent, not their friend,” Foster said it’s easy to take that too far. “You don’t want to become the police, you want to be their parent,” Foster said. “Kids are more likely to open up if you express appreciation and confidence. It’s the only way you’re going to get to the heart of the subject.” V

catâ€™s instinctual urge to chase and kill birds has been with the breed since time immemorial, handed down from their predatory ancestors, like the lion and wildcat. But the question before the City Council last week was what impact neutering has on the instincts of feral and other cats that roam around the fields at Shoreline, near the nests of the cityâ€™s cherished burrowing owls, an endangered species that could be threatened by an influx of felines. In the end, the council punted the most controversial clause of a new animal control ordinance out of contention, which would have banned feeding and releasing stray cats north of Highway 101. After dropping that provision, members voted to pass the bulk of new rules governing pets without a problem. A few months ago, the first effort to pass the animal control measure was shouted down by an onslaught of cat owners who strongly objected to a cat licensing provision. The idea was dropped in the new ordinance, and now only dogs will require a license. But the last word on whether to neuter feral cats at Shoreline or trap and move them to an uncertain fate at the Animal Shelter still awaits the findings of city staff, who have been asked by the council to assemble a â€œstakeholder groupâ€? to find an acceptable way to manage feral cats, and to determine the numbers and locations of feral cats in the city. At last weekâ€™s meeting, groups favoring a TNR (trap, neuter and release) program for feral cats at Shoreline claimed neutered felines would not be a threat to birds, and that if the city embarked on a campaign to remove all cats from the Shoreline area, other cats would simply move in to fill the vacuum. None of these arguments hold water for the Audubon Society, which, according to Mike Kasperzak, strongly lobbied the council to â€œcome down hardâ€? on stray cats. Audubon members claim the â€œtrap, neuter and releaseâ€? program without euthanasia allows cats to be a major threat to young birds,
representatives told the council. Bird-hunting is instinctive for cats, Audubon Society members said, adding that stray cats should be trapped and removed from the North Bayshore area. It was no surprise that the council did not know who to believe, and in the end decided to send a â€œstakeholder groupâ€? including bird advocates and cat rescuers, on a hunt for more information. Time will tell if the group is productive or becomes mired in conflict. There are some points to be made for the â€œtrap, neuter and releaseâ€?program: â– City records show that in recent years only two endangered burrowing owls have been killed by predators, although there is no record if the predators were cats, hawks or other raptors. â– Cat rescue groups, including the cityâ€™s own contractor, Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority, as well as the Palo Alto Humane Society, supported the effectiveness of the â€œtrap, neuter and releaseâ€? method in reducing the stray cat population in the North Bayshore. â– If cats are trapped and disappear, cat rescue groups say, territorial instincts will attract others to take over in a â€œvacuum effect.â€? â– Just as adamantly, the Audubon Society believes there are dozens of stray cats that go into creek corridors and Shoreline Park and prey on the â€œ...most vulnerable, the nestlings, the fledglings.â€? Is there a right or wrong answer to this fight over the safety of endangered birds at Shoreline? Is there a middle ground? Will city staff and the stakeholder group be able to mediate this dispute? No matter whether it favors birds or cats, the other side is certain to be outraged and protest to the council. Whatever happens, the city should make sure the endangered birds are protected, and the outdoor cat population is neutered, so it will not blossom into an unmanageable herd. Everyone loves cats, but unspayed and in the wild, they are hunters and their prey is often birds.

need to voice my concern and raise awareness to the residents of Mountain View regarding the lack of a walkable neighborhood school in the Whisman-Slater quadrant of this city. As a leader of the North Whisman Neighborhood Association, I have been involved with other nearby leaders to address the concern that both of our neighborhood schools (Whisman and Slater) have been closed for several years. The citizens of Mountain View recently approved a bond measure (Measure G) to upgrade district schools and we want the WhismanSlater area to benefit from these upgrades just as every other school in the district will. We also want a safe, local alternative for our children who attend three schools in other parts of Mountain View. Through attendance at many school district board meetings, our neighborhood has seen little compassion or attention from the school board and administration in regard to our plight. We attribute much of this problem to the incompatibility among several of the district decision-makers who consistently bicker and bully one another when this topic arises. The Whisman-Slater area is a part of this school district and deserves to have the same consideration as all of the other areas. Why does the Whisman-Slater have to do without a walkable neighborhood school? We must transport our children across town to various campuses and watch as our schools get passed over for renovations time after time. Whisman-Slater parents will attend the April 17 school board meeting at the district office to present ideas and proposals on how the district can support our neighborhood. We have repeatedly urged the board to hold the meeting within our neighborhood boundaries (Highway 101, Route 85, and Route 237), in the large auditorium at the Whisman School campus. This location would be more con-
venient for our residents, similar to what was done in the Castro neighborhood when neighbors opposed the idea of moving the Dual Immersion program to Slater. We are reaching out to the community to gain awareness and support for this issue. Mountain View is growing larger each day. The schools are exceeding capacity in most cases and are well over the size that was considered normal in prior years. The need exists to address our cityĂs schools â€” all of them â€” and all neighborhoods should be treated equally regardless of economic status. Please attend the school district board meeting April 17, especially if you live within the Whisman-Slater area, to show your support and fill the board room with concerned citizens and children. If you plan to come, please sign up on our attendance sheet at http://bit.ly/whisman-rsvp. Jessica Gandhi is president of the North Whisman Neighborhood Assn.
