  Metroactive News & Issues | Coyote Valley
Coyote Valley, slated to accommodate 50,000 jobs, 25,000 homes and upward of 70,000 residents, will be the city's last major project—Santana Row, dozens of times over.
Indeed, after a portion of the valley's 6,800 acres narrowly escaped the not-so-sexy prospect of becoming yet another high-tech campus when Cisco bailed out of building its headquarters there three years ago, city planners are now gushing about planting an entirely different development philosophy in the valley's soil.
The mantra for the newer, smarter Coyote Valley development has been to create a community where "people live, work, learn and play." Words such as "historic," "unique," "vibrant" and "balanced" are bandied about to describe the seemingly inevitable future for the valley.

 Honoring Nations 2002 >> The Coyote Valley Tribal EPA
The Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians believes that land and water are sacred and must be cared for with reverence.
Only in 1975 were the Coyote Valley Pomo finally able to restore their tribal rights and, in 1979, secure the eighty acres of land that comprise their current reservation.
The broader benefits of these partnerships mean that the impact of the Coyote Valley Tribal EPA extends well beyond its success in reversing serious environmental degradation on the reservation: The Tribal EPA has contributed to the strength of the Band as a whole.

The Coyote Valley Specific Plan (CVSP) is meant to be a blueprint for the development of 3,500 acres of mostly agricultural land at San Jose's southern edge into a community of 80,000 residents and 50,000 jobs.

 Is the Future of Coyote Valley More San Jose Sprawl?
Imagine Coyote Valley, the agricultural open space separating San Jose and Morgan Hill, as it is now: the oak savannah of Santa Teresa Hills to the west, Tulare Hill separating the valley from built-up San Jose to the north, Coyote Creek and Coyote Ridge to the east, and Morgan Hill to the south.
While agriculture in Coyote Valley necessarily constrains its ecological merits because of chemical use (fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides), monocrops and constant working, it still provides a wildlife corridor and buffer zone such that the Santa Teresa Hills are not isolated or fragmented.
Coyote Valley buffers the Santa Teresa Hills and provides corridors for wildlife to visit Coyote Creek, Coyote Ridge (see the California Native Plant Society web page at www.stanford.edu/~rawlings/coyote/index.htm); the Mount Hamilton range.

 Animal Life in the Yosemite (Mammals)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
This coyote of the open San Joaquin Valley is sharply distinct from either of the races of the Mountain Coyote by reason of its coarser, less furry coat, which is of a light reddish rather than either deep reddish or grayish cast of color.
In other words, the Mountain Coyote is a 'woolly' animal; while the Valley species is 'hairy.' A thick coat of fur to protect it from cold is of course essential for an animal which dwells during the winter months in snow-covered mountains.
In October, the numbers of coyotes in Yosemite Valley are augmented, and from then on the animals are more or less common in the environs of the Valley between the altitudes of 3500 and 7000 feet.

 CGF: News: Cars, cows, and checkerspot butterflies: Preserving the serpentine ecosystem in Santa Clara County
On Coyote Ridge, a thousand feet above the valley floor, dazzling carpets of California wildflowers - goldfields, yellow and white tidy-tips, red wild onions, purple linanthus and owl's clover, silvery dwarf plantain, orange poppies, dozens of species - fold over ridges and canyons studded with lichen-covered outcrops of greenish serpentine rock.
Because the wrinkled terrain of Coyote Ridge offers innumerable microclimates that buffer populations from California's periodic droughts and El Nino deluges, this extensive habitat is the butterfly's main, and perhaps only, chance to avoid extinction.
Furthermore, Santa Clara County, San Jose, Valley Transportation Authority, and the Santa Clara Valley Water District are developing a regional Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) that could lead to preservation and management of virtually the entire remaining serpentine ecosystem, as well as habitat for the red-legged frog and other listed species.
