San Marcos Main Street Program

The San Marcos Main Street Program is the downtown department for the City of San Marcos. San Marcos was designated in 1986 as an official Main Street City by the Texas Historical Commission and the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is the third oldest Main Street program in the state. A proud member of Main Street America, the San Marcos Main Street Program has maintained national accreditation since 1999. Under the leadership of Program Manager Kelly Franks, Main Street sought to promote small businesses, growth, and historic preservation. Through a four point approach the Main Street Program focuses on the design, promotion, organization, and economic restructuring of downtown, working alongside the Downtown Association of San Marcos. 

 
To Foster a Downtown that is a Unique and Culturally Vibrant Destination Where Local Businesses Thrive and People of All Ages Can Connect, Create and Celebrate.
— Main Street Vision Statement

Our Mission

The mission of the San Marcos Main Street Program is to maintain the unique, historic nature of downtown recognizing its history and planning for its future. We strive to provide economic stability to the heart of our City through a comprehensive revitalization program of the National Main Street Center's Four Points of Main Street: Design, Economic Restructuring, Organization, and Promotion.

The four points of the Main Street approach work together to build a sustainable and complete community revitalization effort.
