Comment on plans for Rancho de las Cabras
The San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is currently performing an Environmental Assessment to evaluate the proposed construction of various visitor services at Rancho de las Cabras in Floresville. The deadline for comments on this assessment is Tuesday, Dec. 24.
Each of the four San Antonio Missions had ranchos (ranches) for raising livestock. Today, the physical remains of only one -- Rancho de las Cabras -- is known to exist. The proposed project will provide for development to preserve these cultural resources, while offering an opportunity for appropriate public use. Proposed project activities may include the development of a paved entrance road; paved parking areas; hard-surfaced pedestrian pathways; wayside exhibits; landscape improvements; historic resource stabilization/preservation; and a staffed visitor contact station with shade structure, comfort facilities, and maintenance storage.
This environmental assessment is out for public review. It assesses the potential impacts of proposed enhancements for visitor services and the rehabilitation of the cultural landscape at the Rancho de las Cabras, a part of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park located near Floresville.
