The Greater San Marcos Partnership (GSMP), the non-profit economic development organization supporting all the communities in Hays County and Caldwell County, including Buda, Dripping Springs, Kyle, Lockhart, Luling, San Marcos, and Wimberley is requesting community input to help guide the Greater San Marcos region’s economic development strategic plan for the next five years – Vision 2025.

 The Vision 2025 planning process will be conducted over a six-month period in collaboration with city and county governments, private businesses, educational institutions, local economic development partners and many other community members/stakeholders across the Greater San Marcos region. GSMP is leading this comprehensive process to assess and enhance the region’s competitive position to support thoughtful, diverse, intentional, and sustainable economic growth. 

 To ensure everyone in the region has the opportunity to provide input on Vision 2025, community members/stakeholders are being asked to participate in an online survey at beginning Monday, January 20 through Friday, February 7. The survey will take approximately fifteen minutes to complete and responses are entirely anonymous. Participants will be asked to evaluate the region’s strengths and challenges and provide suggestions as it relates to job creation and improving the economy. The online survey is managed by Market Street Services who is also facilitating the development of Vision 2025. Market Street Services is regarded as an industry leader in the development of economic development strategies for communities across the country.

 “As Co-Chairs of the Vision 2025 Strategic Planning Process, Dr. Denise Trauth, Mr. Anthony Stahl, Rep. John Cyrier and I greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete the Vision 2025 Greater San Marcos Community & Business Survey,” said Patrick Rose, Immediate Past Chair of the Greater San Marcos Partnership. “The success of our region’s economic growth within Hays and Caldwell Counties, over the next five years, will depend upon an insightful and well-informed strategic plan. Your feedback on this survey will help us begin the strategic planning process with the best possible perspective. Thank you for your consideration, as we know and respect the value of your time.”
