The good people who have quickly formed River Parks for San Marcos (RP4SM), a special purpose committee in support of proposition one on the November ballot, have been doing their best to get the word out about the need for strong support for prop one. This proposition is a non-binding resolution to acquire the land most of us know as Capes Camp and Thompson’s Island (La Isla to many) and the surrounding land along the river east of IH35. A strong showing of support will give our zoning commissioners and city council the confirmation and political support they need to fend off other ideas for that land including a rezoning to multifamily for apartments.

Here is what one member of SMGA had to say about this potential parkland:
Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE The folks who live in and love San Marcos have hoped for, have expected, that one day Capes Camp and Thompson’s Island would complete the river parks system that has made San Marcos such a great place. Every parks and open space master plan, generated by the voices of citizens, both city and county, has called for two top priorities: more river access and a regional park on the east side of the interstate. There is no other use for this property that makes sense to anyone who cares about the vitality of our economy or our ecology or the legacy we will leave. This is a key moment in our city’s history. Either we grow the parks along the river we love or we let it become nothing more than a fenced backyard to more apartments.
