City of San Marcos residents are invited to participate in the 2019 National Night Out (NNO) on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 1, by visiting with neighbors, police officers, EMS personnel, firefighters, and City officials at select locations within the community.

During National Night Out, neighborhoods conduct the traditional porch-sittings and “lights on” initiatives as well as sponsored special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from law enforcement, rallies and marches.

The nationwide program is a popular and effective vehicle for heightening awareness of crime prevention strategies, enhancing police-community relations and bolstering volunteer morale.

Participating locations and neighborhoods include Allen Woods Homes, Asbury Place Town Homes, Blanco Gardens, Blanco Vista Northwoods, Chapultepec Homes, CM Allen Homes, Cottonwood Creek, El Camino Real, Kissing Tree, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Mariposa Apartment Homes, Sierra Circle, Spring Lake Hills, Springtown Villas, Stone Brook Senior Apartment Homes, Tanglewood, Willow Creek, and Vista de Los Santos. People with questions about NNO events in their neighborhood should contact their neighborhood representative.
