SAN MARCOS


City seeking input


on sidewalk plan


The San Marcos Public Services Department will host a public meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at the Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins St., to seek input to update the city’s Five-Year Sidewalk Maintenance and Gap Infill Plan.


Residents, businesses and groups are encouraged to attend to share their ideas for improvements to make sidewalks more accessible, connected and safe for everyone.


The program aims to maintain and install sidewalks in areas without pedestrian facilities. The program installs sidewalks where no right-of-way acquisition or major engineering design is required.
