City of San Marcos Invites Public to Participate in Comprehensive Plan Survey

Vision SMTX Comprehensive Survey

The City of San Marcos invites you to provide your feedback on the Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan through a survey available between Friday, February 2 and Friday, February 23. The new survey summarizes amendments made by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the San Marcos City Council throughout the Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan adoption process and allows the public to identify concerns and propose specific changes. 

The Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan project began in 2020 and was directed by City Council to update the Vision San Marcos 2013 Comprehensive Plan. In November, the San Marcos City Council established a committee of City Council members to review and discuss the proposed Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan, assess outreach, and gather additional public input. The project’s goal is to create a visionary document that guides long-term decision making for key components of the City such as housing, land use, the environment, economic development, and transportation. 

“The Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan is an instrumental document that defines and achieves the community’s vision for the future,” said Assistant Director for Planning Andrea Villalobos. “This document is a tool that will help us build a San Marcos that is active, inclusive, safe, vibrant, and true to character for years to come. It’s important that it reflects the needs and interests of our growing community.”

Residents are invited to participate in the survey online at Hard copies of the survey are also available for pickup during regular business hours from the Planning and Development Services Department, 630 E Hopkins St. Building 3. 

Survey responses will be shared with the City Council’s Comprehensive Plan Ad Hoc Committee for review, discussion, and further recommendations. Once that is complete, the City Council will consider the Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan for a final reading and adoption at a later date.
