Protect Coyote Valley: Build In Urban Areas

Coyote-Valley-by-Teddy-Miller

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.

We must preserve it and encourage growth within existing cities and towns.  On April 30, the San Jose… Read More

Urge Concord to Support Affordable Homes

Concord Naval Weapons Station

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

Defend Sonoma County’s Community Separators

Sonoma Solstice threatens greenbelt lands at the site of the old Buzzard's Gulch.

In 2016, Sonoma County voted by 81% to protect community separators, the green spaces between our towns and cities. Now, a luxury resort with hundreds of events is proposed by an out-of-town developer in the community separator between Santa Rosa and Windsor. This oversized hideout for the 1% will put the community separators we voted to protect to the test! Defend the Windsor-Larkfield-Santa Rosa Community Separator from this oversized development by signing… Read More

Stop Sprawl in Coyote Valley

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.
