The San Marcos City Council is slated to consider a resolution expressing their support for exploring a possible collaboration with the Indigenous Cultures Institute.
The possible collaboration would involve the establishment of an indigenous cultures center and would include exploring the possibility of joining with the Indigenous Cultures Institute in applying for Hays County Parks and Open Space Bond funding.
According to the agenda, the proposed multidisciplinary center will feature an exhibit, gallery, classroom spaces, outdoor gardens, ceremonial space, and performing arts capacity.
The facility is proposed to be a “signature icon of San Marcos” focusing on the 14,000-year-old history of the original indigenous people of the area.
The resolution associated with the item expresses the city’s support of the indigenous cultures institute to pursue funding through the Hays County Parks and Open Spaces bound process.
The Resolution also includes the City’s commitment to explore available and feasible options to locate the proposed Center.
The city council’s Regular Meeting on Feb. 16 was postponed. However, the item is expected to return on a future agenda.
