Eight years in the making, San Marco by Design, our award-winning Neighborhood Action Plan for Smart Growth, is heading to City Council this spring. When adopted as an ordinance, it will become a key part of the planning process for any new infill development from Mitchell Avenue and the San Marco Square to I-95.
