Silicon Valley has the highest share of high-wage, high-growth jobs, the largest percentage of venture capitalist investments and some of the highest overall economic growth in the country. This growth, however, has not benefited all. Low- and middle-income workers in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties are being left behind and struggle with the increasing cost of housing and transportation. As this dynamic region continues to change and grow, better land use and transportation polices are key to ensuring that our society, economy and natural environment continue to improve for all our residents without impinging upon or degrading future generations’ quality of life.
