Please come out to tell the Mountain View City Council that they should at least consider a proposal to save one of the last famrs in existance in Mountain View. This 15 acre farm helps educate thousands of kids about the agricultural history of Mountain View- just one of many towns that keeps paving their farms away. The two sisters who inherited the land from their father 3 years ago want to build condos on the land.
The Mountain View Farmlands Group has come up with an alternative proposal that would call for 5-6 acres of the 15 acres to be set aside to continue to be used for farming and for educating students about agriculture.
The City Council is having a study session on this proposal tomorrow evening. If they say no tomorrow, it shuts the door on this proposal completely. Please take an hour or two to come out and support the Mountain View Farmlands proposal. This is their last chance!
