The board of directors and members of the San Marcos Greenbelt Alliance strongly urge the San Marcos City Council to support Item 27 of the council meeting agenda for 18 June 2013. This item provides a rare opportunity to expand Purgatory Creek Natural Area with zero funds required from the city’s budget. Funding for the expansion of the acreage, currently known as the Barker Tract, will be paid for by The Trust for Public Lands with a $148,000 contribution and, upon approval, $1,242,209 from grant funds. This parcel offers many values to our community, including protecting our water resources, habitat, flood reduction, recreation opportunities, and economy.
Please let City Council know that you support Item 27 of tonight’s agenda, in support of the Purgatory Creek Natural Area expansion.
