Report: 322,000 acres of Bay Area open space at-risk

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

About 322,000 acres of Bay Area open space, an area roughly 12 times the size of San Francisco, is at risk to development in the next 30 years, says a new report by the Greenbelt Alliance, an open space preservation group. Hot spots: eastern Contra Costa County, Livermore, Vacaville, and the South Bay communities of Gilroy and Morgan Hill. You can read the report. The Mercury News has a story with a map of at-risk areas.
