Looking to the future

An excellent Op-Ed in today's Merc by Tom Steinbach from Greenbelt Alliance looks to the future of San Jose and says if "Downtown North" is developing, why develop Coyote Valley?

We may not be quite as enthusiastic about the North First Street development as Greenbelt (see our post here), particularly because of the jobs-housing imbalance, but the point is right on target that Coyote Valley is not needed for development. Any growth that does occur in San Jose should be more central and not destroy farmlands. This Op-Ed brings Greenbelt and other environmental groups even closer towards common ground regarding Coyote Valley, so it is a great way to welcome in the new year.
