About the Project

The City Council identified Workforce Housing as one of five strategic initiatives for two years in a row. In order to address this initiative a Housing Task Force was formed in 2019 to assist the City Council Workforce Housing Committee in developing a strategic action plan aimed at addressing the housing needs in San Marcos. The task force worked in tandem with City Staff, local stakeholders, and the community using current data collected from the 2019 San Marcos Housing Needs Assessment and Housing Choice Survey to: 

  • Expand Opportunities for Housing
  • Preserve and Enhance Existing Housing Stock 
  • Leverage Community and Regional Partners, and
  • Quantify and Meet the Housing Needs of Current and Future Residents

The final meeting of the Workforce Housing Task Force was September 12, 2019. The Strategic Housing Action Plan developed by the Workforce Housing Task Force was considered for implementation by the Planning and Zoning Commission on September 24, 2019 and the full City Council on October 15, 2019. The Strategic Housing Action Plan is pending adoption.
