The Vision SMTX Comprehensive Plan rewrite is being developed with regular input and participation from local residents, business owners, property owners, institutional representatives, and other key partners and stakeholders. The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee is a key component of that community input and participation. The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee is a diverse collective of community members that represent different districts and varying demographics within the City. In addition to these community members, the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee includes representatives from the San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District, Texas State University, Hays County, and City Council. Each City Council member appointed three members of the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee. These committee members provide input and feedback on each element of the planning process, including preliminary plan vision and goals, guiding principles, base concept development and strategies, element policies and priority actions, implementation strategies and recommendations.
