The Threat: Industrial Development in Coyote Valley
Nestled between the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Diablo Range at the southern end of San Jose, Coyote Valley spans over 7,400 acres. The fields, farmlands, creeks and wetlands of Coyote Valley provide a vital linkage for wildlife migration, flood protection for San Jose, locally-grown food, and trails for hiking and biking.
Since the 1980’s, the City of San Jose has designated North Coyote Valley for industrial development. With the 2019 purchase of over 900 acres of land in North Coyote Valley for permanent conservation, much of this area has been protected, but not all. Development proposals for warehouses and other industrial uses could still result in the loss of important wildlife habitat, floodplains and prime farmland in Coyote Valley.
