‘Restaurant row’ now closer

Tara Pohlmeyer - Staff Reporter

The number of alcohol-serving restaurants in and around downtown San Marcos could be increasing by more than expected after Tuesday night’s city council meeting. 

The council voted to increase the number of restaurant, or restricted conditional use permits (CUPs) in the central business area from 15 to 25, after the planning and zoning commission voted to change the amendment to 20 on June 28. These restaurants must serve food for two meals per day when open, among other requirements. 

Council approves mermaid design

Tara Pohlmeyer - Staff Reporter

In the next year, residents and tourists will be able to see mermaids lining the streets of San Marcos. 

Not unlike the guitars around Austin and the boots of Wimberley, the San Marcos Arts Commission has been working for years to finally see their “Mermaid March” around the town. On Tuesday night, city council approved the base design that will be used for the sculptures. 

“It’s important to know that the same mermaid will be used forever,” Clay DeStefano, Arts Commission member, said. 

Mermaid series starts Sunday

 Mermaid Society SMTX is making a splash as the city eagerly prepares for Mermaid Week SMTX in mid-September. 

Mermaid Week SMTX’s July Moreno encourages the community to “Get Their Mermaid On!” for the launch of the San Marcos River-inspired movement designed to bolster prosperity and preserve San Marcos’ treasured past.

Radiating inner and outer beauty, the mermaid is inclusive of all that’s exclusive to San Marcos.

She is an alluring siren that embodies the qualities that distinguish this pristine yet progressive city.
