Asked in downtown Mountain View. Interviews and photos by Nick Gonzales.
"I do think Mountain View could use some more affordable housing. I know there are a lot of young people in Mountain View and a lot of people looking for a place to live. It would make the downtown scene a little bit more active."
Jeremy Ryan, Sunnyvale
"On a whole, I think there should be more affordable housing because primarily the housing here is a little higher than the other cities around."
Dominic Cabacungan, Mountain View
"I think it's an oxymoron. Unless we start building high-rises, like in Manhattan, there's just a limited amount of land."
Tony Maciejowski, Sunnyvale
"I think there should be more affordable housing because we have really good schools and a nice community, so lots of people should be able to live here. But at the same time, my family is about to move, so I kinda want the market prices to go up so we can get money on our house."
Juliana Russell, Mountain View
"Yes, definitely. There are a lot of people who can't afford to live here. It's such a nice community and it would be a plus if we could find affordable housing for everyone."
Ramon Arizmendi, Mountain View
