Plans are in place for development of an approximately 29.52-acre tract of land in northwestern McKinney, Collin County, Texas. The tract is located southwest of the US 380/Lake Forest Drive intersection, and sits on the northern extent of the Wilson Creek floodplain and the adjacent upland. An intermittent stream flows through the site, and contains Waters of the U.S., which fall under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. KBA EnviroScience, Ltd., which is handling the project’s environmental permitting, contracted AR Consultants, Inc. to survey this jurisdictional area. Survey of this approximately 2.08-acre study area was conducted June 23, 2016. No cultural resources were found on or below the surface. Based on these results, AR Consultants, Inc. recommends that further cultural resources within the jurisdictional area are unwarranted, and request that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas Historical Commission concur with this assessment. However, if cultural resources are uncovered during construction, AR Consultants, Inc. recommends that work should cease and that Texas Historical Commission archaeologists be consulted to assess the find prior to construction resuming.
