Updating Master Plan

Significant Growth

San Marcos and Hays County are experiencing significant growth, and San Marcos is among the fastest growing cities in the nation.

Changes in Transportation Needs

It's been difficult for the City's transportation policies, development rules, and the streets and facilities themselves to keep pace with new needs and new traffic. The previous Transportation Master Plan was completed in 2004 and must be updated with new socioeconomic data and information from the recent Comprehensive Plan.

Vision San Marcos

The City's recent Comprehensive Plan, Vision San Marcos - A River Runs Through Us, is the City's guide for where new growth will occur.

Prepare for Future

This proposed update of the Transportation Master Plan will help the City prepare and prioritize for the future, with a written plan, ultimately voted on by the City Council, to identify improvements needed over the next 30 years to improve safety, minimize congestion, preserve local character, and protect the rivers and the San Marcos environment.
