Document Description
The Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority proposes to implement public access features within the Coyote Ridge Open Space Preserve (CRID) and open CRID to public use and dispersed, low-intensity recreation, consistent with the Management and Monitoring Plan developed for the preserve, as required by the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Plan. The project includes the establishment of an approximately 7.5-mile trail network with three rest areas and two overlooks that would connect to the main trail system via short trail segments developed to be consistent with the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines for Outdoor Developed Areas. Additional appurtenant features would include service vehicle pullouts; interpretive and wayfinding signage, and restoration of disturbed areas with stockpiled native soils or application of an appropriate non-irrigated seed mix (to be approved by the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Agency or qualified biologist). The access and recreation-related improvements are within the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Plan Reserve System-enrolled portion of CRID and are allowed by the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Agency through the conservation easement agreement for the property, and they are later activities consistent with the Habitat Plan and the Habitat Plan Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS).
