Stop the Development of our Pristine Foothills

This petition had 171 supporters

This is a petition to stop the building of a single family residence off of Santa Teresa Blvd above the Laguna Seca area. (Conditional Use Permit No. CP17-010)


In the bustling Silicon Valley, with all the new construction, traffic, and growth, it is vital that we preserve our rural areas. The Santa Teresa Foothills provide a respite for wildlife and residents alike. Unlike many other areas in the Silicon Valley are Foothills remain unblemished. That is why it is called out in the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Agency's plan, the Envision San Jose 2040 Plan and Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authorities plan to protect these hills on the northern edge of Coyote Valley.

The single-family residence, if built, would be in the middle of the northern most wildlife corridor near the Tulare Ridge above the Laguna Seca area. This Corridor serves as an important migration path for animals traveling from the Diablo Range to the Santa Cruz Mountains. The constrution of a new residence would disrupt their wildlife corridor.

In addition to the catastrophic effects to the local wildlife it would affect the local residents, destroying the scenic neighborhood views and diminishing their property values.

Coyote Valley and the Santa Teresa Foothills provide the antidote to our busy and stressful lives with their pristine beauty. 

To save our foothills please sign the petition and contact the following people, asking them to stand against urban sprawl and for saving our environment by denying CP17-010;
