Coyote Valley is a large expanse of farmland, orchards and homes located in the southernmost part of San José between the Diablo Range to the east and the Santa Cruz Mountains to the west. This valley is considered by many to be the last remaining “untouched” open area within San José, an open space buffer between San Jose and Morgan Hill. It functions as a critical wildlife corridor for safe passage of large mammals from the Diablo Range to the Santa Cruz Mountains and contains the largest freshwater wetland in Santa Clara County, Laguna Seca, a lake important to groundwater recharge. Coyote Valley was named a 2001 Last Chance Landscape of America the Beautiful, described as: “… a rare scenic break in an otherwise urbanized area… The rolling hills, blossoming orchards, and grand oaks provide respite to visitors, residents, and myriad species of wildlife.” Coyote is notable for its historic Grange Hall, close to the Post Office and the Metcalf Energy Center. The community was nearly absorbed by San José’s urban sprawl, until collapse of the dot-com bubble canceled the city’s plans. The population is estimated to be 5,900, up % since 2000. Median household income in 2013 was $92,000. Median home value in 2013 was $861,000.
