If you were at San Jose’s State of the City event last week you probably caught Mayor Sam Liccardo’s address. During it he gave a shout out to Megan and Committee for Green Foothills, and more importantly, to protecting Coyote Valley:
“I mention our ambitions for Diridon Station for an important reason: our sustainability – not to mention our traffic, economy, and fiscal health—depend first and foremost on how we build our city. We have to halt decades of sprawling development that has left our residents without commute options beyond enduring clogged conga lines masquerading as freeways. That’s why we must stand together with environmental advocates like Megan Medeiros of the Committee for Green Foothills, and James Eggers of the Sierra Club against developers seeking to cover our Evergreen foothills with a gated community. That’s why we must work together to reimagine the possibilities of Coyote Valley, for wildlife protection, recreation, flood control, and conservation.
This our moment to embrace a collective vision that preserves our environment, and our children’s future.” -Mayor Sam Liccardo, State of the City 2018
