Open Space Authority Purchases Additional Property in the Santa Teresa Foothills

26 Apr 2017 10:00 PM | STFNA Admin (Administrator)

We are pleased to announce that the Santa Clara County Open Space Authority (OSA) has just purchased the 52-acre Pfeiffer property in the Santa Teresa Foothills. This is the second parcel purchased by the OSA in the past two years, the first being the 8-acre SanFilippo parcel located at the end of Miracle Mountain Drive. The Pfeiffer property is located on the south side of Santa Teresa Ridge and provides a key open space link between the Almaden Valley and Santa Teresa sides of the foothills. See the presentation on the OSA's website for further details.

Since its inception in 2000, the Santa Teresa Foothills Neighborhood Association has been working with the City, County, Santa Clara Valley Water District, and the OSA to encourage the preservation of the Santa Teresa Foothills as public open space. In that regard, we lobbied the OSA to purchase the Pfeiffer and SanFilippo properties and we are continuing that effort for other properties including the 20-acre Valley Christian property on Winfield Boulevard. We appreciate the support of the OSA staff and Board of Directors in this effort and we look forward to future acquisitions to protect this valuable resource known as the Santa Teresa Foothills here in our backyards.
