The City Council provided direction to rewrite the City’s current comprehensive plan, Vision San Marcos, originally adopted in 2013. This comprehensive plan rewrite project will establish the goals and vision for the future of San Marcos for the next 20 years. The comprehensive plan rewrite will create a visionary policy document that guides long-term decision-making for key components in San Marcos such as housing, the environment, economic development, transportation, and land use. The rewrite will include significant public engagement to obtain input from the public, stakeholders, and organizations in San Marcos throughout the planning process.
