A "three-per" here:
1. San Jose City Council will require an informational memo from staff on alternatives to Coyote Valley. It wasn't clear to me they would do that, partly because I couldn't hear what a City Council member was saying, but it looks good now. An actual hearing to oversee staff would be better, but this is a start.
2. Last week, Santa Clara County finalized its plan to revise its EIR process and eliminate the "sneak peek" provision giving developers access to documents no one else could see. We've been working on this issue for a long time. The Merc did a write-up here.
3. CGF went out hiking on Coyote Ridge on Saturday to see the best wildflower display in the Bay Area. We hope to someday preserve this area and open it public access so everyone will get the chance to see this beautiful display each spring.
