A vibrant San Marco with a bustling square. A thriving small business community with a multitude of dining, retail and recreational options. A place where when we shop and dine, we not only see our neighbors, we support them.
The current vacancies in our commercial district illustrate what is at risk. Without higher density in San Marco, businesses do not have the foot traffic to stay in business. We must grow our residents in a walkable radius of the square.
Attracting more visitors to San Marco is not the full answer. Parking constraints limit the foot traffic achieved by visitors from other parts of town.
Higher density in our commercial district is the boost our small business community needs!
