On November 22, the Hays County Commissioners approved an amendment to an inter-local agreement between the county and the City of San Marcos that takes us one step closer to adding 107 acres to Upper Purgatory Creek Natural Area. SMGA will continue to share our support of the expansion with city and county officials, and we thank the Trust for Public Land for their time and investment in this project.
The next step is for the San Marcos City Council to approve the acquisition of the additional acres. Please email [email protected] to express your support for the Purgatory Creek Natural Area expansion. We expect the item to be on an agenda before the end of the year. And of course, we are thrilled to have this beautiful natural area expand to conserve additional environmentally sensitive land and provide more recreational opportunities for San Marcos!
