BACKGROUND

At the August 18 Parks Advisory Board meeting, The San Marcos Parks and Recreation Advisory Board recommended to staff short-term solutions to be implemented by the summer season of 2017 to address River Parks overcrowding.  The Park Advisory Board is very concerned about public safety and City liability due to the record crowds visiting our River Parks during the summer months.  This presentation will provide information on some short term solutions that can be implemented for 2017 summer season.   Long term solutions will be address with citizen feedback during the Parks Open Space Master Plan update process later in the year.
