Here’s another opportunity to voice your support for a network of greenways and trails that connect the places where we live, work, learn and play. As you contribute to a shared vision for our city, remember that greenbelts offer an inviting and easy way to move throughout our community as a pedestrian or cyclist experiencing our natural landscape and heritage along the way. Greenbelts also help protect creeks and rivers, our water supply, and habitat for native plants and animals. And greenbelts help you access natural areas that contribute to your spiritual and physical health as well as to the economic vitality of our city.
Here is an excerpt from a recent City of San Marcos press release. Read the full release here.
What is your “dream San Marcos?”
Dream San Marcos
That is the question the City of San Marcos will be asking residents over the next several weeks as part of a visioning process to update the City’s 1996 comprehensive plan. City staff will gather ideas from residents about what San Marcos should become in the future using online software, suggestions by email, comment cards, and more traditional public events. Activities will include meetings with citizens, businesses, students, and civic groups, as well as presentations at City boards and commissions, community events such as the Farmers Market, and a daylong public input session.
The City is using “IdeaScale,” an online software that invites community participation in an open forum. Over the next few weeks, City staff will pose a variety of questions and invite residents to weigh in with their opinions, questions, ideas and dreams for San Marcos. Visitors may also log in through their accounts with Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, AOL, or OpenID. Participants can submit their own ideas or questions and vote and comment on ideas. The best ideas will float to the top
