The Public Works Department invites the public to attend the five-year Sidewalk Maintenance and Gap Infill program meeting. The department is seeking ideas and comments on sidewalk areas to include in the plan update. The meeting will take place on August 30 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 East Hopkins Street.
The five-year plan identifies improvements in areas needing sidewalk maintenance, where sidewalk gaps occur, or where no sidewalk exists. This program focuses on areas where no right-of-way acquisition is required, no major engineering is needed, and the projects are relatively quick and low cost. The annual budget for the five-year plan is $150,000 per year.
“As San Marcos grows, residents are a lot more inclined to use our sidewalk infrastructure," said Street Maintenance Manager Shawn Wolfshohl. "The Sidewalk Maintenance and Gap Infill Program promote walkability throughout the city while maintaining ADA compliance.”
