The County of Santa Clara has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of the proposed Cordoba Center project (project description below).
The following comments have been received:
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.
