Shall League of Women Voters SJSC revise the Coyote Valley Position?

Coyote Valley Position was originally approved in 2004 (current and proposed position) long before any widespread concern about climate change was commonly discussed and what we could expect in the future if we did nothing. Fast forward to 2018 with new information and emerging trends coming forward on adaptation and resiliency to modify effects of changing weather. League approved revisiting our Coyote Valley Position in light of its potential for storing carbon, providing food and capturing and storing stormwater runoff.

On March 17th League Coyote Valley Study Committee will present findings and make a recommendation of a new Coyote Valley Position (current and proposed position). Additional background reading material has been added to the previous resource list posted with article in February Voter.
