    Hello, Mountain View is building housing. It may not be right in the middle of the Googleplex and it’s surely not enough to meet the city’s job/housing imbalance.

    But Tim Redmond’s claim that “regional powers to insist that San Francisco take on 92,000 housing units when Mountain View won’t allow any at all” is so false that I question why this article was linked. Believe me, if Mountain View weren’t building any new housing I’d have a lot fewer anti-growth NIMBYs to fight at City Hall.
