The County of Santa Clara, along with the cities of San Jose, Morgan Hill and Gilroy, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, and Santa Clara Valley Water District, has initiated a collaborative process to prepare and manage a Habitat Conservation Plan/ Natural Communities Conservation Plan, officially named "Santa Clara Valley Habitat Plan -- A Conservation Legacy." The goal of this plan is to provide for the conservation of endangered/ threatened species, thereby contributing to their recovery while allowing for compatible and appropriate development to occur.
