Tell San Jose City Council to Protect Coyote Valley

Now is the time to stand together for Coyote Valley! The San Jose City Council is considering how to implement Measure T—which includes up to $50 million for protection of Coyote Valley. Greenbelt Alliance endorsed Measure T, an infrastructure bond that received overwhelming voter support last fall.

We need you to remind the City Council what the people want by telling them to spend all $50 million on preserving this regional treasure.

After decades of work, and especially the recent election successes, we have only a limited time to permanently protect one of our region’s most threatened landscapes.

Coyote Valley is essential to Santa Clara County’s water supply, a key buffer that can help mitigate flooding and other natural disasters, a vital agricultural area, and the last remaining wildlife corridor between the Santa Cruz and Diablo Mountain Ranges. We can’t miss this opportunity to preserve it for future generations.

Act now and demand that the San Jose City Council use all available funds to purchase and preserve land in North Coyote Valley!

  1. Please protect this important area!

    We cannot let sprawl destroy this iconic land which is rich with wildlife and helps protect against climate change for generations to come.

  2. PURCHASE COYOTE VALLEY AND PERMANENTLY PRESERVE THIS VITAL LANDSCAPE.

  3. Please protect the Coyote Valley from urban or suburban development. Keep it natural and with some farming. San Jose needs to expand up, not out. Reduce the need for increased commuting times in the interests of workers’ health and family times as well as reducing air pollution and fighting climate change. No more sprawl. Keep the remaining spaces between cities south of San Jose green so that the public can experience the restorative properties of open spaces and green fields.
