The City of San Marcos is committed to transparency in government by making project information available online. This map is the online doorway to find some of our active and adopted plans and projects. Click a blue push pin on the map to learn more about a plan or project. List view and table view of projects are also available.

The development projects tables are identified by residential, mixed use and commercial/industrial types. Please contact the developer directly for project details such as construction timing, cost and availability.

The map is intended to provide a general overview of active projects and may not be representative of all proposals submitted to the city’s Development Services Division so some plans and projects may not be included on this map. For example, the city also works on planning various citywide programs as well as policy and legislation changes, Environmental Review & Sustainability, and the city's comprehensive General Plan. Project renderings as shown are standard project images and not reflective of actual project design.

For more information about projects in San Marcos, contact the city's Planning Division at (760) 744-1050.
