Living in Milpitas
Located between Fremont to the north and San Jose to the south, the City of Milpitas is a growing homebase for individuals and families with ties to Silicon Valley. With an estimated population of more than 77,000, the city of Milpitas has seen a 16% growth in residents since 2010. The increasing population would also account for the area’s healthy housing market. Home price’s have been steadily rising since 2012. The median home value price as of December 2016, according to Zillow, was $860,000, still less expensive than many other Silicon Valley cities.
With relatively reasonable home prices, strong schools—rated 9 out of 10 on Great Schools—and convenient access to three major highways—880, 680, and 237—Milpitas has become a bustling residential town. Where Ohlone tribes once cultivated corn, today stands Northern California’s largest mall; tech companies like Cisco and SanDisk; and robust family-oriented communities.
Remodeling in Milpitas
Like many homeowners, you may be eager to renovate but unsure how specific city codes affect your plans. The award-winning Valley Home Builders team boasts extensive experience navigating both the latest California Building Codes (CBC) and city requirements.
The Milpitas Municipal Code (MMC), which the city uses in addition to the 2016 California Building Codes, is relatively straight-forward and available on the city’s website. It’s important to note that the Milpitas Municipal Code includes standards for historical buildings as well as specific wind speed exposure requirements, due to high wind speeds in the area.
The city’s Building and Safety Department also provides a convenient one-stop permit center to help ensure a smooth planning, inspection, and permitting process.
