  1. One of the biggest challenges to business growth and prosperity in San Marcos is the legacy of languished projects and everstanding, beat up orange barrels and barricades that litter our city. For years it has been easier to go around town than through town. Projects seem to grow at a rate that is much faster than actual capacity to complete them as evidenced by the piles of barrels and barricades with no one actually working at them. Effective and timely progress requires skilled and effective project management and realization of the actual capcity to finish what has been started before undertaking something new. I hope that the City council and those running for election will recognize this as a crucial and key issue to progress and assure that the capcity to effectively manage what has been undertaken is a key priority in future City management.
