San Martin Chamber of Commerce

San Martin Shines

By Connie Ludewig

The beauty of San Martin , with a designated scenic route along Monterey Road , was officially recognized by the County in

1995 , when the Board of Supervisors established the San Martin Integrated Design Plan to protect the rural residential lifestyle from urban development . With numerous large-growth industrial and institutional proposals , concerns of residents and business owners alike are valid and must be considered ; especially regarding plans for High Speed Rail .
The fate of this unincorporated community is still unknown ; and this Chamber continues to focus on the ‘ gems ’ of South County . Our members are as unique as this rural residential village and they share common goals to make San Martin a better place to live , work and play . We want to highlight some who really shine with positive influence .

In September , they featured the ‘ History of San Martin ’ at their 49th annual Founders ’ Dinner . Their videotaped interviews of San Martin elders , who have lived here 70 + years , were informative and engaging .
