Carmel Valley Save Open Space

CVSOS—a nonprofit community organization with 501(c)3 status. CVSOS organized in 2018 at the Carmel Valley Community Center.

Our initial goal is to acquire the former Carmel Valley airfield property. This 30- acre tract has historically been viewed as valuable Open Space for the community. This unique Open Space in the center of Carmel Valley Village adds value to the community with its beauty, easy access for walking, and for its use for emergencies and community events, such as the annual Santa Fly‑in.

Recognizing the unique value of maintaining this property as Open Space the community has come together through CVSOS in an effort to purchase this property. 

The property is currently for sale as three large developable lots and could be lost to us at any time. Development of any of this land will impact the ability for valley residents to use it as it has traditionally been used for walking, for nature enjoyment and for emergency services, including staging for fire fighting.

Our community has a rare opportunity to come together to preserve this jewel in the “heart of the valley” as Open Space for generations to come.
