Good Morning Lisa,

Please see responses in red below. I have also attached two worksheets that I received. Kristy gave me 6 plans that were used for the workshop. I have the plans with Daley. Also, if you plan to come during lunch the Clerk’s office is closed but I will be here working. Please have the front receptionist in the lobby call me at ext. 8088.

Please let me know if you need anything else.

Thank you,

Liz

Subject: Neighborhood Character Study – REWRITE OF SAN MARCOS LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE – Code SMTX

This is an Open Records Request regarding the Neighborhood Character Studies being promoted in San Marcos for the SMTX Code Rodeo, rewriting of the Land Development Code in San Marcos documents related to:

1.     How much was spent on public relations such as push cards, media, etc. for this project? Final invoices have not been received; however for design & production of print materials, logo, website design & update, yard signs, postage for 21,000 mailers will be about $12,000.  All videos have been produced by in-house staff, as well as door hangers produced in-house and distributed by Tx State student volunteers.

2.     There was a first post card sent out with TBA dates. Was there a second post card sent out with specific dates for meetings? No second postcard was sent for the Northern workshop which listed TBA info due to mailing deadlines; all future postcards for the remaining workshops will have location info.  A few residents may receive postcards for two workshops due to postal routes established by the post office.

3.     How many residents have attended meetings thus far at each meeting? See attached Workshop Summary

4.     How many meetings are remaining? Three – May 2 Western Neighborhoods; May 9 Heritage Neighborhoods; May 23 Willow Creek Neighborhoods  Will residents be able to attend meetings of other neighborhoods if they missed a meeting in their neighborhood? Yes, the meetings are open to the public.

5.     Visual aids such as of PowerPoint slides and handouts as well as vote tally or map renditions from these recent meetings. Copies of paper maps are available for you at the City Clerk’s office & all info for the completed workshops will be on our website under the Planning & Development services department page by next Monday, May 4.  That is the best place to see all presentations, comments and other info.

6.     Email correspondence between CoSM and consultant on “transition zones” regarding preparation for this consulting event.  See attached Preserve Enhance Character Worksheet as addition info used in relation to transition zones during the workshops. No emails concerning transition zones but consultant did assist staff in the preparation of the attached handout.

Respectfully,

LM Coppoletta
