The San Pedro Neighborhood Association is a non profit corporation founded by residents of the San Pedro community. The purposes of the SPNA, as stated in the
By-laws, are:

(a) To preserve and protect the rural residential environment of the San Pedro neighborhood area of interest and to assure that any future development is in conformity with applicable plans and ordinances of Santa Fe County.

(b) To monitor mining and development activities in the area surrounding the San Pedro
Neighborhood community to assure that such mining and development activities are
environmentally sensitive, in the best health, safety, and welfare interests of the San Pedro
community, and in conformity with applicable plans and ordinances of Santa Fe county.

(c) To represent the common interests of property owners/residents in the San Pedro
Neighborhood community in the areas of water quality and availability, public services, utilities, and other matters bearing on the general welfare of residents of the area.

SPNA is not a governing organization of any sort and is set up to promote the purposes listed above. Any adult residing or owning property in the San Pedro Neighborhood area who desires to support the purposes of the Association may become a member of the Association by applying for membership and paying the prescribed dues.

Over the years SPNA has worked hard in furtherance of the organization's purposes. SPNA helped establish a local volunteer fire station, successfully fought the reopening of a large mining operation at the old San Pedro Mine Site (at the top of Heartbreak Hill), worked with the County to establish conditions on the gravel mining operation on BLM land north of the fire station, and worked on a variety of fire prevention and water quality issues.
