The City of San Marcos has been working with residents, a nine member citizen committee, and a team of consultants since last year to update the City's Land Development Code.
During the Zoning for Character workshop, property owners and residents began exploring the regulatory framework proposed for the 6 Vision San Marcos Intensity Zones established in the recently adopted Comprehensive Plan.
Regulating Plans establish the development standards in both words
and diagrams for a specific geographical location. Regulating Plans
contribute to creating a more predictable built environment based on
community desires. The Intensity Zones established during the
Comprehensive Plan are intended to accommodate the City's growing
population in well-planned areas where people can meet their daily needs
within a short walk, bike, transit trip, or drive.
