Public Encouraged to Complete San Marcos Housing Survey

The City of San Marcos is conducting a Community Housing Survey through Jan. 31, 2019 to help inform decisions about housing, land use and transportation within the City.   

The survey can be accessed directly at www.research.net/r/SanMarcosHousingSurvey (English) or www.research.net/r/SanMarcosHousingSurveySP (Spanish).  All respondents who complete the survey and register will be entered in a drawing for a $100 Visa gift card.

“This survey is a major component of a broader undertaking to thoroughly assess our housing market and will be a valuable tool for the City’s Workforce Housing Task Force,” said Shannon Mattingly, Director of Planning & Development Services.  “Participating in the survey is a simple way for people who live in San Marcos to help guide housing and other policies.  We’re excited to see the results.”

Survey topics include: 

•    Important factors when purchasing or renting your current home

•    Housing, utility, and transportation costs

•    Your future housing plans

The City will also hold its second Workforce Housing Task Force meeting on Thursday, Dec. 13, from 12pm-2pm at the Meadows Center, 201 San Marcos Springs Drive.  The Task Force is comprised of 20 community leaders charged with assisting the San Marcos City Council in developing a comprehensive housing policy to address challenges faced by working families in San Marcos.  

All Task Force meetings are open to the public. For more information, contact Planning & Development Services at 512.393.8230 or visit https://www.sanmarcostx.gov/1635/Workforce-Housing-Task-Force.
