Great news for Coyote Valley! Measure T in San Jose, which provides $50 million for land conservation in Coyote Valley, has been approved by the voters. We are closer than we’ve ever been before to permanently protecting a large part of Coyote Valley!
Another ballot measure concerning Coyote Valley that was approved by voters last night is Measure X, the Gavilan Community College District bond measure. Primarily funding improvements in the Gilroy and Hollister campuses, it does include some funding for a new building on the Coyote Valley campus. We asked our supporters to take action back in July to oppose the expansion of the Coyote Valley campus, and the Gavilan Board of Trustees responded by limiting the new construction to only one building on the existing footprint. Now that Measure X has passed, we will keep an eye on the expenditure of the funds to ensure they are not used to expand the campus further.
A huge thank you to all of you for voting, for spreading the word about Measure T, and for supporting CGF!
