Policy Letter
July 9, 2012

SPUR believes that the City of Mountain View has arrived at a General Plan that performs very well on environmental attributes. The plan incorporates housing into an otherwise single-use job district, allows for the transfer of development rights as a tool to preserve significant historic buildings permits an increase in floor area ratio (FAR) that will support job growth, reduce congestion and strengthen the community’s character. SPUR encourages the adoption of the Draft 2030 General Plan, Draft Greenhouse Gas Reduction Program and Final 2030 General Plan Environmental Impact Report, with the modification to include Charleston East as a mixed-use designation.
