San Marcos Activity Center Room #3

The Code SMTX process has moved into the approval stage of the project. A Public Draft Code was released on May 27, 2016 and went through a six month review period followed by the production of a Revised Draft Code which was released on January 6, 2017. This Revised Draft Code represents two and a half years of public input, extensive analysis, and most recently response to over 1000 comments received from residents via our online commenting system, Open Comment, as well as by email, open house events, surveys, etc. The approval stage of the project begins with two Joint City Council and Planning Commission Workshops where 10 major topics representing the most important issues for San Marcos will be discussed.
The second workshop will include the new water quality and drainage standards proposed with Code SMTX. We will be discussing how these strategies reflect the vision, goals and objectives of the City's Comprehensive Plan, and other ongoing watershed protection initiatives supported by the Habitat Conservation Plan and the Meadows Center for water and the environment.
In addition to the overview, the workshop will included a facilitated discussion on five of the topics that received the most attention during the review of the Public Draft Code. Click the links here to see the backup material associated with each major topic.
The January 30 Joint Workshop focused on what was changing in Existing Neighborhood areas. The information and materials from this workshop as well as the feedback received can be found on the City's Website. A recording of the workshop is also available on the website and may be viewed at the link below.
