Time has come for this year’s General Meeting, where you can voice your views and participate in the election for open seats on the Board of Directors.  This year is particularly active on proposals within San Martin.  We have seen changes in the General Plan and are likely to see further changes later this year or next.  There are also plans being submitted to the County for significant developments which we believe are threatening our rural environment.


A number of outreach and other meetings have been held by the County over the past year which in most cases have been sparsely attended.  Part of SMNA’s purpose is to make these meetings known to our members and we send many emails to encourage participation.  For those of you who are not on the email list (about 200 members) we encourage you to join one of the two email lists.  You can either be on the email list where other SMNA members can email to all other members or you can select to be on a more restrictive list where you receive only information from the SMNA Board.

Send your choice of list to:  info@SanMartinNeighbor.org


For the upcoming General Meeting, we have invited Rob Eastwood – Planning Manager for Santa Clara County and members of his Staff, to present and go over how the planning process works for large projects in San Martin.


Here is a list of the projects/issues being followed by the SMNA Board:


  1. Proposal for Patel RV Park in San Martin (approx. 124 units)
  2. Proposal for Cordoba Center (approx. 30,000 sq.ft.)
  3. Building a PG&E Substation
  4. High Speed Rail route through San Martin
  5. County Circulation and Mobility Plan – road changes in San Martin
