Greenbelt Alliance is proud to endorse CityWalk by Bishop Ranch in San Ramon! We applaud their commitment to stormwater management best practices, developing drought-resistant parkland, and wetlands that will introduce qualities supportive of ecological diversity. Every city in the Bay Area must play their part to increase the housing stock to make sure the local workforce can afford to live close to jobs, schools, and services — spending more time with family… Read More

Coyote Valley is 7,400 acres of lush farmland and vast open space that provides an awe-inspiring landscape to explore. It is a crucial water resource for Silicon Valley. Its flood plain protects San Jose. It is home to wildlife, including endangered species. Coyote Valley is critical to the ecosystem of the entire South Bay. We must preserve it and encourage growth within existing cities and towns. Originally scheduled for April 30, 2020,… Read More
For over a decade, Greenbelt Alliance has worked to protect 2,200 acres of the East Bay’s former Concord Naval Weapons Station—an area double the size of Golden Gate Park—while encouraging a long-planned 13,000-unit housing development. The development will provide 25% affordable housing, making a dramatic impact on our regional housing crisis. But all of this could disappear this week if the Concord City Council is not able to finalize a project proposal… Read More

For decades, Greenbelt Alliance and our partners have protected Coyote Valley from inappropriate development—from technology campuses to sprawling subdivisions. Now there is yet another proposal before the San Jose City Council to build a 517,000 square foot warehouse distribution center on Coyote Valley’s pristine lands. We need your help to stop it.
Successful local farms and ranches provide fresh food and economic, social, and environmental benefits for the entire Bay Area. Yet, development continues to chip away at our agricultural lands. Since 1984, we’ve lost 217,000 acres of farm and ranch land to sprawl—that’s seven times the size of San Francisco! You can use your online voice, your vote, and your buying power to support local farms and ranches.
