For me, taking the time to sit down and reflect on what we accomplished together in 2015 made this endeavor worthwhile.
Looking back was also an exercise of gratitude. As we talked to members, met with volunteers, dug through comment letters and action alerts, compiling stories of our impact—I was reminded of how grateful I am to be a part of this dedicated community of people. It is only because of our members that there is a voice for local wildlife and natural areas.
Thanks to your support, we advocated on 30 local land use issues in 2015. Some of my favorites include:
- Advocating for Half Moon Bay to preserve natural areas, endangered species habitat, and farmland during its general plan and Local Coastal Program updates (more on pg. 4)
- Speaking up for parks and open space in East Palo Alto’s general plan (more on pg. 5)
- Leading the effort to protect over 700 acres of farmland in Morgan Hill (more on pg. 6)
On behalf of everyone at Committee for Green Foothills, thank you for making these efforts possible. I hope you’ll read our annual report with a sense of pride for all that you have made possible for local open space.
