Vision 2025

GSMP is focused on directing future growth and positioning the region for a wider diversity of quality jobs with higher wages.

In January 2020, leaders in Greater San Marcos embarked on a collaborative community and economic development strategic planning process that will make the region a more prosperous, successful, and vibrant place to live, work, and do business. The process has resulted in a new five-year Economic Development Strategy that will be a consensus-based blueprint to guide the community’s actions in the years to come.
The Greater San Marcos Partnership convened the strategic planning process on behalf of its regional community and economic development partners. A diverse Steering Committee comprised of public, private, and non-profit leaders guided the Vision 2025 planning process.
The process addressed the full range of issues that influence a region’s competitiveness, including its talent, education and training resources, infrastructure and mobility, quality of place, resiliency, and so on. The resulting Strategy includes actions and tactics designed to address challenges, capitalize on opportunities, and advance the region and its distinct communities, residents, and businesses forward to a new period of heightened competitiveness and prosperity, and, where appropriate, worked to integrate some of the emerging, though still uncertain, implications of COVID-19.

Vision 2025 was finalized and approved in October 2020, going into effect for fiscal year 2021.
Now as we enter the implementation phase of Vision 2025, the driving force behind implementing the strategies and reaching our goals will be the committees and working groups that will formed.
