RHYTHM OF THE STREET…. listen for it….visit, enjoy.
(From the city of San Marcos media releases and Facebook)
“A downtown block will be transformed into a vibrant, walkable and bikeable pop-up space to play, dine and shop as the City of San Marcos Development Services and CIP Engineering departments present “Rhythm of the Street” on Saturday, July 26, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on South LBJ Drive.”……
“The event is a one-day, temporary installation of concepts, amenities and activities that demonstrate how a block can be better utilized to suit the needs of the community. A pop-up park will add beauty and interest to an otherwise neglected parking lot, while live music and yard games invite the public to stay and enjoy the space. Pop-up shops and an art gallery will temporarily fill vacant spaces to demonstrate retail potential of downtown buildings.” The event will also feature concepts that would make the area more pedestrian and bike friendly such as bike lanes, café seating, lighting and landscaping.”
“To demonstrate the two-way traffic pattern that was recently proposed by City Council for the street, the current one-way street will go “two-way for a day,” highlighting the positive effects this traffic pattern can have for both retailers and visitors. LBJ Drive from MLK Drive to Hopkins Street will become a two-way street from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. On this day only….
