The City of San Marcos will host a public meeting to gather public input on the Sidewalk Maintenance and Gap Infill Program on August 29 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins. Light refreshments will be served.
The Sidewalk Maintenance and Gap Infill Program is a rolling five-year plan with a $200,000 annual budget that identifies improvements in areas of San Marcos where frequent pedestrian accidents occur and areas needing sidewalk maintenance, such as areas where sidewalk gaps occur or where no sidewalk exists. The program focuses on areas where no right-of-way acquisition is required, no major engineering is needed, and the projects are relatively quick and low-cost.
“As San Marcos continues to grow, more people are beginning to use our sidewalk infrastructure,” said Street Maintenance Manager Shawn Wolfshohl. “The sidewalk maintenance and Gap Infill Program promotes walkability throughout the city while maintaining Americans with Disabilities Act compliance.”
The meeting will provide the community an opportunity to offer input and suggest locations in San Marcos in need of sidewalk improvements that could be included in the annual sidewalk program update.
