On October 18 and 19, 2017, Blanton & Associates, Inc. conducted an intensive archeological survey of the proposed Leah Tract Development and Leah Avenue Extension on behalf of Lifestyle Development LLC in Hays County, Texas. The total area of potential effects for the proposed project is approximately 50 acres (20.23 hectares) in size, and the maximum depth of impacts from the proposed project would be 6 feet below the current ground surface. Survey of the area of potential effects was conducted prior to commercial development of the parcel and roadway construction in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and its implementing regulations (36 CFR 800), as well as the Antiquities Code of Texas (Texas Natural Resources Code, Title 9, Chapter 191) and associated state regulations (Texas Administrative Code, Title 13, Chapter 26). The 100 percent pedestrian survey, augmented by 16 shovel tests, identified no archeological sites within the area of potential effects. No further archeological work is recommended for the project.

No artifacts were collected during the survey. Project field documentation, photos, etc. and final report will be curated at the Center for Archaeological Research at The University of Texas at San Antonio as required under terms and conditions of Texas Antiquities Permit No. 8198.
