• Special BIPP Meeting

  • Wednesday, July 13, 2016 from 11:45am to 1:30pm

  • Creating more affordable housing is a crucial need for our community. What can and should the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce do to best fulfill its central role of facilitating prosperity, livability and inclusion for our community and region?

    Join us next Wednesday, July 13th at 11:45am to 1:30pm to enjoy a series of presentations offering innovative strategies for more affordable housing and hear a short debate on the Rent Control Initiative headed for a vote by the community this fall.

    To accommodate the presenters and to allow more community participation we’ll be meeting at a special location provided by El Camino Hospital. We’ll convene in meeting Rooms under the YMCA building on the El Camino Hospital Campus next to Cuesta Park (El Camino YMCA, 2400 Grant Road, Mountain View, CA 94040). 

    There will be signs. Please park in the main parking facility on the right at the end of North Drive. There will be construction going on at the Hospital so we encourage you to carpool.
