North Bayshore Precise Plan wins APA award

Mountain View's North Bayshore Precise Plan won the 2015 Award for Comprehensive Plan, Small Jurisdiction, from the California Northern Section of the American Planning Association. North Bayshore is home to Google, Intuit, LinkedIn, and other major Silicon Valley companies. To keep pace with the rapid growth of these busines----s – and to help them recruit and retain the young professionals that drive their gr----th – the City of Mountain View retained the team of Raimi + Associates, Sargent Town Planning, Nelson\Nyggard and others to craft a plan to transform the existing 1980's vintage business park and into a more intense, walkable, transit-oriented and highly sustainable 21st Century employment district. In keeping with Mountain View's strong commitment to environmental sustainability, the plan balances the intensification of business activity within the transit-rich district core with incen----ves – including transfers of development ----ghts – to improve the natural habitat along the edge of the San Francisco Bay.
