Her and her husband’s bed and breakfast, open for more than 30 years, normally has 50%-70% of its rooms booked on any given night, but the string of cancellations brought about by the rst wave of the pandemic was the beginning of a 35-day streak with- out a guest.

1 million-square-foot warehouse distribution center in north San Marcos at Fortuna Road and Yar- rington Road, across from the Hays County Transportation Depart- ment, according to city documents and City Council members. The project became apparent when documents for a parking variance were submitted to the city of San Marcos for review and city ocials let slip what the develop- ment’s intended use would be. The warehouse is planned to be 1,005,000 square feet and will occupy roughly 71 acres in the Whisper Planned Development District on the north side of San Marcos. According to JimWelch, vice president of Pape-Dawson Engi- neers Inc., the project aims to come online in roughly nine months. “This is, as you know, very, very time sensitive,” Welch said. “We have to start right away, and we’re looking to be online in Septem- ber. So, even once we do start

Potential employment gures were not immediately available, but Welch said the site plan would include 557 parking stalls. Mayor Jane Hughson and other City Council members expressed a desire for electric car-charging stations and solar panels to oset some of the facility’s environmen- tal impact, although it was not clear if these were included in the current plans for the project. Amazon operates another warehouse on the south side of San Marcos and announced plans earlier this year to open a sortation center in Kyle. A document for the requested variance includes the proposed use for the site as “Amazon Distribution/Warehouse.” “I will say, you know, in our packet it’s pretty publicly clear who the end user is, and it’s an Amazon warehouse distribution center,” Place 1 City Council Member Maxeld Baker said.

CORRIDOR CONSTRUCTION

35

Road construction along the I-35 corridor in Hays County has continued mostly unabated in 2020 and will continue at a steady clip in 2021, according to Epi Gonza- lez, Texas Department of Transportation area engineer for the south Travis County region. “COVID-19 has kind of thrown a little curveball at us in many aspects, but I think from a transportation perspec- tive, it hasn’t really aected us that much,” Gonzalez said. “Of course, it’s aected us in the sense of how we actually conduct our business, but as far as some of those larger projects—we’re still moving forward with them.” For 2021, Gonzalez listed a number of new and ongoing road projects for commuters and area residents to watch, from improved lighting along I-35 in Kyle to a roughly $100 million overpass project in San Marcos. The former project, estimated to cost $3.7 million, would add high mast lighting between SH 80 and Yarrington Road. Gonzalez and TxDOT Public Information Ocer Bradley Wheelis noted benets to this type of lighting as com- pared to older lighting systems, including reduced light pollution, improved roadway illumination for increased visibility and less maintenance. The masts would elevate LED xtures 150 feet above I-35, and fewer light poles would be needed. Beginning in the latter half of 2021, TxDOT will begin a ve-year project at I-35 and Hwy. 123 in San Marcos that will include a replacement overpass over the San Marcos River, according to Gonzalez. He also said a new I-35 ramp reversal project along I-35 in Kyle between FM 150 and Kyle Parkway is likely to proceed soon. The project would only aect northbound trac, and Gonzalez said it will mostly impact frontage roads, as opposed to trac on I-35. However, some trac may be diverted from the frontage roads to the main lanes due to construction of a new bridge. Commuters driving through the San Marcos area can look forward to the completion of work on I-35 at Posey Road sometime in the fall. Additionally, Gonzalez said FM 110 between Hwy. 123

Two campuses approaching year-round scheduling

Ocials contend with increased COVID-19 risk HAYS CISD Superintendent Eric Wright said the district was anticipating and preparing for additional COVID-19 community spread when students returned for the spring semester. In the fall semester, students were split roughly even between in-person learning and remote learning. However, Wright was concerned that introduction of COVID-19 vaccines would shift more students to in-person learning. HCISD purchased additional sneeze guards for settings where social distancing would be more dicult to maintain, and Wright said more would likely be purchased in the future. The superintendent said shielding for teachers was also under consideration, as teaching sta were not included among frontline workers prioritized to receive the coronavirus vaccine. Miller Middle School upgrade remains on pace for late summer completion SAN MARCOS CISD Progress is moving forward for improvements to Miller Middle School as part of San Marcos CISD’s 2017 campus improvement bond. The next phase of the Miller Middle School upgrade will see the facility get improvements to its third and second oors, including its library and administrative oces, said Bernie Sandoval, the district’s director of construction management, in late 2020. Improvements and additions to Miller Middle School are expected to be complete in August.

Information from the TEA states that selected districts have a year to plan for the extended calendar, after which they will undergo a three-year execution phase. SMCISD’s plan includes more outreach and engage- ment to students, parents, campus sta and community partners, Dray said. In January, she added, her team will release Part 1 of the strategic plan for year-round designa- tion with feedback from the TEA. “Pending the success of the program, it is possible that the extended calendar may be adopted by other campuses within the district for future years,” Dray said. “However, there are currently no formal plans to do so, and any plans to expand to other campuses would follow stakehold- er-driven redesign planning processes.” PROS AND CONS Leaders for the school redesign for year-round scheduling cite numerous benets, but the outreach phase of the plan saw survey respondents voice certain concerns. Benets and concerns regarding implementation include: B E N E F I T S C O N C E R N S More time for unstructured play Student burnout More exposure to career paths Dwindling student attendance An allowance for physical education every day Inadequate teacher compensation SOURCE: SAN MARCOS CISDCOMMUNITY IMPACT NEWSPAPER

SANMARCOS CISD Due to a $200,000 grant from the Texas Education Agency that San Marcos CISD was selected to receive in mid-2020, a team is moving full speed ahead with plans to shift two elementary schools within the district to a year-round learning model. SMCISD’s Travis and Mendez elementary schools are the two campuses in consideration for the shift to year-round status, which, if approved, would go into eect in August. The SMCISD board of trustees voted Dec. 14, 2020 to approve a year-round designation, according to Nicole Dray, executive director of innovative and special pro- grams for SMCISD. Dray said board approval to apply for designation with the TEA was necessary to move forward with the planning process. “Formal calendar changes for Travis Elementary and Mendez Elementary will be presented to the board of trustees as an action item for approval at the January [board] meeting,” she said. During the Dec. 14 meeting, Dray told ocials the district is on track to have its nal strategic plan on the schedule year shift to the TEA by April 1. The TEA has selected SMCISD and several other districts throughout the state to be part of the 2020-21 Additional Days School Year Planning and Execution Program. That means the district received an initial planning grant of $200,000 earlier this year, and pending TEA and SMCISD board approval, it could receive another $200,000 in continuation grant funds that would support program implementation for the 2021-22 school year, Dray said.

because of the pandemic but would in the future. The 2020 bond included six individual propositions that voters could select individually to approve or vote against. Proposition A was the largest chunk of the bond at $137.48 million. It included the $47.66 million expansion of all six of the district’s middle schools; $35.86 million for a new elementary school; and smaller amounts for the renovation and expansion of Live Oak Academy, elementary school expansions and other growth items. No tax rate increases were expected under the 2020 bond plan. Updates to the bond will be made available on the HCISD website.

HAYS CISD On Jan. 25, , Hays CISD expects to call for a May bond election to address growth and other district needs, according to district Director of Communica- tions Tim Savoy. He said the bond would be similar to last year’s $217.3 million bond election that was canceled due to the pandemic. Savoy believed attendance could soar in the wake of the pandemic, adding to the need for additional facilities. The district lost roughly 350 stu- dents for the 2020-21 school year, but HCISD believes they will return to the district in the future. He also said some pre-K and kindergarten students did not enroll this year
