The City of San Marcos is conducting a Community Housing Survey through Jan. 31, 2019 to help inform decisions about housing, land use and transportation within the City.
The survey can be accessed directly at www.research.net/r/SanMarcosHousingSurvey (English) or www.research.net/r/SanMarcosHousingSurveySP (Spanish). All respondents who complete the survey and register will be entered in a drawing for a $100 Visa gift card.
“This survey is a major component of a broader undertaking to thoroughly assess our housing market and will be a valuable tool for the City’s Workforce Housing Task Force,” said Shannon Mattingly, Director of Planning & Development Services. “Participating in the survey is a simple way for people who live in San Marcos to help guide housing and other policies. We’re excited to see the results.”
Survey topics include:
• Important factors when purchasing or renting your current home
• Housing, utility, and transportation costs
• Your future housing plans
The City will also hold its second Workforce Housing Task Force meeting on Thursday, Dec. 13, from 12pm-2pm at the Meadows Center, 201 San Marcos Springs Drive. The Task Force is comprised of 20 community leaders charged with assisting the San Marcos City Council in developing a comprehensive housing policy to address challenges faced by working families in San Marcos.
All Task Force meetings are open to the public. For more information, contact Planning & Development Services at 512.393.8230 or visit https://www.sanmarcostx.gov/1635/Workforce-Housing-Task-Force.
