SAN MARCOS - The fastest-growing city, for the third consecutive year, was San Marcos with U.S. Census numbers showing the city’s population swelled by 7.9 percent between 2013 and 2014 to 55,892.

As the city keeps growing, so does the interest to invest in property. The presence of Texas State University, the San Marcos River and affordability — compared to Austin — also make the city marketable.

City of San Marcos Mayor Daniel Guerrero said the city has been planning for the population growth over the years, putting into place different infrastructure projects to make sure they keep up with the boom.

Including San Marcos, Texas was home to six of the top 13 fastest growing cities by percentage. Others on the list included Georgetown, Frisco, Conroe, McKinney and New Braunfels.
