Coyote Valley Climate Overlay
The County is proposing amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and General Plan regarding a new overlay zone for the unincorporated area known as Coyote Valley, between the Cities of San José and Morgan Hill. The County’s proposed amendments are intended to coincide with changes proposed by the City of San José to amend its own Zoning and General Plan designations in Coyote Valley.
The County’s new overlay zone in Coyote Valley would limit the development of certain uses and introduce new voluntary financial incentives aimed at protecting the unique combination of natural characteristics of Coyote Valley.
