This report documents the substantive findings and management recommendations of the archeological survey conducted by Integrated Environmental Solutions, LLC (IES) for the Cottonwood Creek Trail Extension Project (CSJ: 0918-24-214), City of Plano, Collin County, Texas. As the City of Plano is a political subdivision of the State of Texas, the proposed project will require coordination with the Texas Historical Commission (THC) prior to construction, per the provisions of the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT). In addition, as the project will require a Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) Nationwide Permit (NWP) 14 from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), portions of the project will be subject to the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended. All work conformed to 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 800, and 13 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) 26, which outline the regulations for implementing Section 106 of the NHPA and the ACT, respectively.

The goal of the survey was to locate, identify, and assess any archeological sites that could be adversely affected by the proposed development, and to evaluate such resources for their potential eligibility for listing as a State Antiquities Landmark (SAL) or eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).

The archeological survey was conducted by archeologists Thomas Chapman and Kevin Stone on 05 July 2017, under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 8091. During the IES survey, no archeological sites were encountered within the 2.31-mile Area of Potential Effects (APE).

No artifacts were collected as part of this survey. All records will be temporarily curated at the IES McKinney office and permanently curated at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL). No further work is warranted. However, if any archeological sites, other than those documented within this report, are unearthed during construction, the operators should stop construction activities, and immediately contact the project environment representative to initiate coordination with the THC prior to resuming any construction activities.
