Document Description
The Proposed Project includes the implementation of the Coyote Canyon NRM Plan & IA Plan. The purpose of the Proposed Project is to manage and protect natural resources and to provide public access into a new trail network within the Property. Under the NRM Plan, the Department would manage the 2,741-acre Property in accordance with applicable guidelines and policies including, but not limited to, the Santa Clara County General Plan, Santa Clara County Parks 2018 Strategic Plan, and the Santa Clara Valley Habitat Plan. During evaluation of the Property for the NRM Plan, it was determined that the Property provides highly suitable habitat for sensitive plant and wildlife species and no major changes to the existing management regime were recommended. The Department would continue to implement strategies, including managed grazing, reconnaissance surveys, and invasive plant control, to maintain and enhance conditions for natural resources on the Property. Natural resources management goals, objectives and recommendations are provided in Section Four of the IA Plan and within the NRM Plan in Appendix G.
