San Marcos Mercury | Local News from San Marcos and Hays County, Texas


The city of San Marcos’ Planning & Development Services department will host a public open house noon to 6 p.m. March 22 at the San Marcos Rec Hall, 170 Charles Austin Drive, to discuss potential expansion of two historic districts.

The city council-appointed Historic Preservation Commission is considering a recommendation to the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City Council for the expansion of the existing Lindsey–Rogers and Hopkins Street districts. The Lindsey-Rogers district would be expanded to include the former Lamar Annex campus and surrounding areas.

The open house will be a come-and-go event and will provide an opportunity for the community to offer feedback on the proposed boundaries of the expansion prior to the scheduled public hearings.

A letter detailing the proposed historic district expansion and the Open House was mailed to all potentially affected property owners on March 10.
