Downtown San Marcos Street Signs Get Makeover

New signs coming to Downtown San Marcos

Starting the week of January 25, 2021, the City of San Marcos will begin installing new street signs in the downtown area. The branded street signs are part of the Main Street Program’s ongoing efforts to showcase downtown’s rich historic character, vibrant public art, and distinctive attractions. 

The signs were developed through months of research and collaboration between the Main Street Advisory Board, Main Street committees, the Downtown Design Task Force, City departments, and community members.

 “We’re excited to see this project come to fruition,” said Josie Falletta, Downtown Coordinator for Main Street. “Our volunteers put a lot of thought and hard work into designing these signs, and we invite our community to join us downtown to admire them and visit local attractions.”

 A total of 98 signs will be installed as part of the $14,300 project that was approved in the Main Street budget for the 2020 fiscal year.
