According to a new report, Coyote Valley is one of the nation’s most at-risk landscapes, due to the continuing threat of development. The 2017 Landslide Report: Open Season on Open Space was compiled by The Cultural Landscape Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to connecting people to places and encouraging stewardship of public lands and culturally significant spaces. Coyote Valley was one of thirteen different threatened places featured from coast to coast.
The report's goal is to draw immediate and lasting attention to threatened landscapes and unique features. Coyote Valley falls under the themos of “monetization of open space,” conversion of open space to new housing, retail, and commercial development, and the “devaluation of cultural lifeways,” loss of important cultural history as places and physical attributes are lost. The report references the Authority's Coyote Valley Landscape Linkage twice and encourages readers to sign Greenbelt Alliance's petition to stop sprawl in Coyote Valley.
