Save Pittsburg's Hills  |  Save Tesla Park

ACTION: Contact Pittsburg City Council.

A Seeno project to develop 1,500 houses on the beautiful hills next to the Concord Naval Weapons Station threatens the new regional park there. The project, called the Faria/Southwest Hills Annexation, would annex more than 600 acres of hills into the City of Pittsburg and allow houses to be built directly on the ridgeline overlooking the regional park. These houses would be highly visible and a huge eyesore. They would also be located far from services such as transit and shopping, which would increase traffic in the area. Wildlife species likely impacted by this Project include Golden Eagle, White-tailed Kite, Ferruginous Hawk, Western Burrowing Owl, Loggerhead Shrike, Grasshopper Sparrow, Tri-colored Blackbird, California Tiger Salamander and California Red-legged Frog.
Please tell the Pittsburg City Council that you oppose this project by emailing them at

Tesla is part of an Audubon Important Bird Area, and includes a Critical Linkage Wildlife/Habitat Corridor; Golden Eagles nest and forage within its boundaries.
