"Coyote Valley is a large expanse of farmland, orchards and homes, approximately 7,200 acres in size, located in a narrowing of the Santa Clara Valley, in the southernmost part of San Jose, Calif.," according to Wikipedia.
"Coyote Valley is targeted for urban development and until March 2008 was undergoing the state of California ... master planning of the area. The process was intended to analyze the feasibility of bringing new development to the area, with the participation of planners, environmentalists, engineers and the general public.
"Although the North and the Mid-Coyote Valley areas have been planned for urban development since 1961, much controversy surrounds the proposal to build in this valley, which is considered by many to be the last remaining 'untouched' open area within San Jose, an open-space buffer between the urban city of San Jose and the northward expanding city of Morgan Hill, and a critical wildlife corridor for safe passage of large mammals from the Diablo Range to the Santa Cruz Mountains."
