Kickoff survey logo

The City of San Marcos Planning and Development Services Department is seeking community input on downtown design through an online Kickoff Survey. The survey is available in English and Spanish and will help the City plan for updates to the downtown design standards.

 “This process is intended to address key vision topics, including architectural styles, landmarks, greening, and balancing the old and new in downtown San Marcos,” said Andrea Villalobos, Senior Planner. “Public input in these early stages helps our team focus on the issues that matter to the community.”

A public workshop will be held in person as soon as it is safe to do so. Initial outreach efforts for this project have included three stakeholder meetings in mid-April which were held virtually. Click here to learn more about the big ideas from those meetings.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will close on Thursday, May 28.
