On Tuesday night, November 19, the San Jose City Council will vote on a plan to develop some of the last remaining open space along the Bay in Santa Clara County. It’s also some of the only remaining burrowing owl habitat along the South Bay shore. In addition, this development would impact rare plants and other wildlife, plus set the stage for additional development along Coyote Creek.
Council members Liccardo, Chu, and Kalra have proposed changes to the plan that would allow economic development yet provide protection to our natural resources, including riparian and bay ecosystem and burrowing owls.
Please email San Jose City Council members. Tell the council who you are and that you care about San Jose's natural habitats and rare species, and ask the council to vote in support of the changes proposed by council members Liccardo, Chu, and Kalra. You don’t have to be a San Jose resident to take part, keeping open space in South Bay affects the entire San Francisco Bay.
