35101.  The Legislature hereby finds and declares all of the
following:

continuing and serious conversion of these lands to urban uses, to
preserve the quality of life in the county, and to encourage
agricultural activities.
   (b) In order to deal in an expeditious manner with the current
serious loss of these properties, the county needs to develop and
implement a local funding program involving properties occupied for
urban purposes which give rise to the need for open-space
preservation that goes significantly beyond current existing funding
which is not adequate to resolve these losses.
   (c) It is in the public interest to create the Santa Clara County
Open-Space Authority so that local open-space preservation and
greenbelting decisions can be implemented in a timely manner to
provide for the acquisition and maintenance of these properties.

using, and benefit from, the availability of open space.
