Dear Mr. Boyd:
Thank you for allowing us to comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Coyote Valley Specific Plan (CVSP). Since 1958, Greenbelt Alliance (GA) has been protecting natural areas and working farms. Over the years, our mission has expanded to recognize the need to accommodate the region’s growing population with better land use planning. Through research and public policy development, our organization seeks to educate communities about the benefits of compact development near public transportation. Since 1990, Greenbelt Alliance has endorsed over 100 development projects and nearly 20 neighborhood plans that help relieve the pressure to build out on the greenbelt. Local examples of projects we have endorsed include Bay Meadows Phase II (San Mateo), Hitachi Campus (San Jose), Mayfield Mall (Mountain View), and Villa Montgomery (Redwood City).
