July 23: Virtual Community Workshop

As part of the update to the downtown design standards and guidelines, the city hosted it's first ever Virtual Community Workshop to seek input on the future look and feel of downtown! The event took place on Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. online via ZOOM. The Workshop was interactive and participants learned about architectural styles and provided input on the vision for different areas of downtown. Thank you to all who participated and provided input on the look and feel of future downtown San Marcos!

In addition to the virtual event, the city offered a take-home Workshop Toolkit that could be picked up safely outside City Hall. The Toolkit served as a text version of the virtual workshop and included additional text information and multiple choice questions to gather input directly in the toolkit.
