P&Z to hold hearing, workshop on land development code


The San Marcos Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing and workshop on proposed changes to the Land Development Code on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

Development Services Department staff members will present proposed changes on the rules that govern all development in the city limits and the 3.5 mile extraterritorial jurisdiction of San Marcos. The code includes rules on zoning, subdivisions, watershed protection, site planning and construction permitting.

The proposed changes will remove inconsistent and unclear language, promote visually attractive developments, improve clarity, predictability and usability of the document, and support quality design.

What an opportunity! You can spend hours helping write a code which will be ignored and violated for decades.
