Preserving South Livermore
4,345 Acres Preserved in South Livermore
64 Conservation Easements on over 100 properties
South Livermore has always been an area rich with fertile soils, good weather, and rolling hills perfect for the cultivation of agriculture, especially vineyards. It is home to the oldest and most prestigious wine regions in California. However, more than 25 years ago, that legacy was almost lost.
Through the inception of the South Livermore Valley Area Plan and the creation of the Tri-Valley Conservancy, local interest groups, the cities of Livermore and Pleasanton, developers, wineries, and growers helped preserve the heritage and success of South Livermore as a premier wine-growing region.
Today, we enjoy the benefits of its vision of careful development, ag land conservation, and consistent investment in the Livermore area. The map above shows the properties in the South Livermore Valley that are preserved through conservation easements. Below are some of the tools that TVC utilizes to preserve agricultural land within the South Livermore Valley.
