Getting it Right

This report provides a template for smart growth not only around Coyote Valley, but also in other urbanizing areas throughout the Bay Area and across the nation.

In response to the City of San Jose’s plan to allow development in Coyote Valley, a 6,800 acre area of open space and agricultural land on the city’s southeastern edge, Greenbelt Alliance convened a year-long series of workshops with a broad spectrum of stakeholders to discuss how and where development in Coyote Valley should occur.

The result of this process is Getting It Right, a smart growth vision that promotes environmental sustainability, social equity, economic vitality, and a sense of community. Getting It Right: Preventing Sprawl in Coyote Valley provides a template for smart growth not only in Coyote Valley, but also in other urbanizing areas throughout the Bay Area and across the nation.
