Document Description
The Coyote Hills Restoration and Public Access Project aims to restore habitat and add public access facilities to a 306-acre parcel that would become part of Coyote Hills Regional Park. The existing Coyote Hills Regional Park is located in the northwest corner of the City of Fremont, east of the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Refuge, and north of State Highway Route 84. The 306-acre expansion area borders the east side of the existing Regional Park; is bounded to the west by Ardenwood Boulevard and Paseo Padre Parkway; and is bounded to the north by the Alameda Creek Flood Control Channel. The proposed project consists of two main components: a Land Use Plan Amendment (LUPA) and a Park Development Plan, both prepared by the East Bay Regional Park District (District). The LUPA amends the 2005 Coyote Hills Regional Park Land Use Plan to include the 306-acre expansion area and its land uses. The Park Development Plan outlines the restoration and visitor-service facilities and public access trail development proposed for the expansion area. The proposed expansion includes a new entry kiosk, parking lot, restroom and family picnic facilities, entry area improvements, signage, over 5 miles of new trails; wildlife observation platforms, and approx. 150 acres of habitat restoration and enhancement. Proposed habitat restoration and enhancement types would include willow thicket and mixed riparian forest, as well as oak savanna, seasonal wetlands, and enhanced grasslands. The Project would preserve views, continue agriculture, and preserve, protect, and interpret the site's rich natural resources, Native American culture, and historic resources.
