Coyote Valley

Getting it Right

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.
