During late April and May of 1977, individuals from the Center for Archaeological Research, The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), conducted a preliminary archaeological survey and assessment of the proposed 2500-acre Encino Park Development in northern Bexar County. The work was conducted in two phases by two different teams working during the periods of April 25-May 4 and May 16-20, 1977, although both investigated portions of the East and West Elm Creek drainages and adjacent upland areas. The archaeological assessment was carried out under contract with the Denton Development Corporation.
The intent of the survey was to locate and assess archaeological sites in the Encino Park study area and to evaluate their significance before destruction or alteration occurred. Proposed developments will alter or modify major areas of the present physical topography near the Elm Creek drainages and will thus eventually disturb the local archaeological resources.
