Monta Loma Summer Field Use Pilot Program

June 7, 2021

Dear Monta Loma Neighbors,

Beginning this summer, the Mountain View Whisman School District and City of Mountain View will be launching a pilot program to provide public access to areas of the Monta Loma open space while summer school is in session. A diagram and key points describing this access are below.

Points of Access: Community members will be able to access the open space from Thompson Avenue, Laura Lane and Ana Avenue. The access on Ana Avenue will be through a modified pathway. This pathway will direct the public along the tree line at the back of the school rather than across the black top, which is dedicated to the use of students during school hours.

Areas of Open Space Available to the Public: During school hours, community members will have access to the tot lot and designated areas at the front of the school and along the tree line adjacent to the tot lot and at the back of the baseball diamond. Outside of school hours, the public will have full access to the fields.

Signage:  New signage will be placed at school access points to describe the parameters for public access. The areas for public use will be delineated using signage and cones. School District and City staff will move signs daily to allow public access to the full open space during non-school hours. 

Dates and Hours: The pilot program is scheduled to start when summer school begins on June 14, 2021 and will continue through July 9, 2021 when summer school ends. During summer school, public access will be limited to the designated areas during the school hours of 7:30am to 4:00pm.  Outside of school hours, the public will have full access to the fields. 

The diagram below shows where signage will be located and illustrates areas accessible to the public.

We appreciate your support with this pilot program as we look for opportunities to balance school safety and public access to open space. Additional information will be shared regarding public access during the school year later this summer.
