High Speed Rail

The High Speed Rail (HSR) through San Martin has been under discussion for several years starting with a few possible routes and now leading to a potential chosen alternative.    This route will run close to the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) and will result in some changes to the local road system.

In particular, in the center of San Martin and where San Martin Avenue, Middle Avenue, Church Avenue and Masten Avenue would cross the HSR/UPRR alignments. In addition, in order to maintain speeds of up to 185 miles per hour through San Martin, the Monterey Road/UPRR corridor would need to be realigned to the west of their present alignments. This could affect property on the west side of Monterey Road from either north of Roosevelt Avenue or north of Chester Avenue all the way north up towards Middle Avenue. The impacts would vary depending upon whether the HSR is elevated, at grade, modified at grade or trenched along the potential alignments through San Martin.

The proposed route can be seen at http://www.hsr.ca.gov/Programs/Statewide_Rail_Modernization/Project_Sections/sanjose_merced.html.

Project Description

The project proponent, South Valley Islamic Center (SVIC), proposes to develop the Cordoba Center, a multi-use religious and cultural center to serve the Muslim community of south Santa Clara County on a 15.8-acre site on Monterey Road within the unincorporated community of San Martin. The primary structures proposed include a two-story mosque and a two-story community center building, to be located on the southern portion of the project site, facing south (toward California Avenue). The western portion of the site would be used as a cemetery. A caretaker’s residence and orchard are proposed to be located along Monterey Road. SVIC current has 400 members. Maximum attendance at religious and cultural events is generally anticipated to be 300 individuals, although special events (4 times per year) could include as many as 500 attendees
