Quality of Life Service Priorities


Morgan Hill is a special place with an amazing quality of life.  Together we must continue to address our quality of life needs for it to remain this way.

Beginning in November of 2015, the City  began engaging the community to obtain feedback about Morgan Hill's quality of life needs, making sure that as many people as possible had an opportunity to share their views. From what the community told us, it is clear that maintaining city streets, roads and repairing potholes, rapidly responding to 9-1-1 emergency calls, fire protection, police protection, maintaining a safe, clean, and reliable water supply and managing growth to maintain neighborhood character are top priorities.

Additionally, the community has shared through written comments that the following are important as well:

  • Better management of growth in general
  • Solving traffic problems, including speeding
  • Preserving open space and agricultural land
  • More affordable housing in general and for seniors
  • Concern about new development and our water supply

Thank you to the over 1000 of you that provided feedback.  The City Council has listened to and reviewed all community feedback.
