The 50th annual Mountain View Art and Wine Festival is just around the corner, and the Chamber of Commerce is looking for volunteers to help the event run as smoothly as possible.

The event is slated for Sept. 10 and 11 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.

Make your voice heard on bicycle, pedestrian issues in Mountain View

Community members who want to weigh in on pedestrian and bicycle topics in the city of Mountain View are invited to apply to the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee. The city is currently seeking to fill one vacancy on the committee.

Those appointed to the committee serve a four-year term, and can serve up to two terms maximum. The committee meets at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom on the last Wednesday of the month, except for May, July and December. Meetings generally last between two and three hours, and the city highly recommends that applicants attend a few BPAC meetings prior to applying.

Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Sept. 29. They’re available in the City Clerk’s Office or online here.

Contact the City Clerk’s Office at [email protected] or 650-903-6304 for further information.
