BY THE NUMBERS Demographics, housing values

Mountain View is an ever-evolving community that has emerged as an epicenter for tech giants, new ideas and vibrant cultural activities. Our annual Info Mountain View publication aims to help residents get the most out of the community by capturing the most useful information needed, whether to connect with neighborhood leaders, contact the mayor or figure out where to go dancing. Our Education section offers comparative information on public and private schools. The Outdoors chapter maps out where you can fish, skate and observe wildlife. The Government chapter provides information on your City Council and the many boards and commissions that keep Mountain View running. In addition to this publication, you can visit mv-voice.com to stay up to date on news and events happening in Mountain View. Subscribe to Express, a daily email, and have the news delivered right to your inbox. Or check out Weekend Express, emailed on Thursdays, for the scoop on art and entertainment. Both are free; sign up at mv-voice.com/express. And if you’ve got suggestions for next year’s Info Mountain View, please email editor@mv-voice.com. We appreciate your feedback.
