    re: local shuttles in mountain view. Only in Mountain View is reducing jobs the answer to the problem of more jobs than housing.

    “I think we need to reduce the amount of office space in Mountain View that we’re building,” said city council member Jac Siegel. “It’s affecting everything in Mountain View. Every day we hear about someone being pushed out of the city. Why? Because there’s more jobs than there is housing.”

    Brilliant.

    I don’t live in Mountain View, but if you do, don’t forget to vote for someone with a working forebrain in this year’s council election.

    That reminds me – maybe it would make more sense to move Geary BRT off of Geary entirely? The project hasn’t been built yet so that means it should be easy to change the plans, right?

  • coolbabybookworm

    It hasn’t been built but it has been extensively planned, brought to the public for input, and environmentally reviewed. That costs a lot of money and time, scrapping those plans would be a loss of millions of (mostly federal, I believe) dollars spent on the project already.
