Ribbon cutting to be held for city's new mobility hub

Thursday, November 14, 2019

A ribbon cutting will take place Monday for the city’s new mobility hub. 

 The City of San Marcos and San Marcos Main Street will host the ceremony at the Downtown Mobility Hub at 214 E. Hutchison Street at 9:30 a.m. 

 “The Mobility Hub is a glimpse into the reality of small space utilization and activation within our downtown,”Mayor Jane Hughson said in a statement. “By prioritizing this area for bicycles, pedestrians, public transit and electric vehicles we are taking a step toward a healthier, safer and more sustainable San Marcos.”

 The City bought the lot in 2010 and demolished a dry cleaning building that was on the space. A parking lot was originally planned for the location. The mobility hub, however, was envisioned in 2017 by a committee, which sought to beautify the downtown area. The plans were given a go in 2018. 

The mobility hub project will be designed to beautify downtown and provide San Marcans and visitors with a space for all modes of transportation. The city broke ground in June 2019. The cost is estimated at $361,000.
