BIPP Meetings
BIPP (Business Issues & Public Policy) is the branch of the Chamber that advocates for the business community. BIPP is like the eyes, ears, and voice of local business. The decisions that the BIPP committee makes are presented to the Chamber's Board of Directors. The Chamber BOD then decides and votes on whether or not they will take a position on an issue, and what that position will be. 

Anyone can attend BIPP meetings, but you need to attend 3 of them and become an official BIPP member, before you are allowed to vote.

How are decisions made in Mountain View, and how do you, as a business owner or resident, make sure your voice is heard? By attending BIPP meetings!

City of Mountain View Launches Downtown Valet Parking Program
The City of Mountain View launched a free one-year downtown valet assist parking pilot program at Parking Lot 11 (Villa Street at Franklin Street).  The City hired a parking management company (Parking Company of America) to provide the valet service.  
The program stations valet attendants in Parking Lot 11 to assist vehicles when parking and/or exiting the parking lot.  Drivers using the program will release their vehicle and vehicle keys to allow attendants to move vehicles when needed.  The program is available for any driver parking in downtown Mountain View during the following days and hours:
 
·         Days: Thursday through Sunday
·         Lunch Hours: 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
·         Dinner Hours: 5:00 pm to 12:00 midnight

Thank you for supporting our downtown businesses.
