Citizens Start State Park Cookbook
Citizens for Blanco State Park will hold its first fundraiser with a Blanco Park Heritage cookbook. They are asking for recipes for camping, tried-and-true old time favorites, park history, old photos, CCC information, and more.
Call Jo Nell Haas at 830-833-5695 or email Sharon Romero at email@example.com. They will make arrangements to get the information. The group cannot promise that all photos and stories will fit into the cookbook, but they will be used when the group puts together a history of the park.
Design Guidelines Document Progresses
Sue Ann Pemberton of Main Street Architects presented the second draft of the Blanco Design Guidelines at a public meeting held Monday night, March 14. She has been working on reorganizing the document to make it more user-friendly and easier to find guidelines for a specific type of property. Her company is working on adding historic photos to accompany contemporary photos to show features of historic buildings that are no longer there. She said that they have found precedence for more things, such as pipe columns and parapets, on historic buildings in the square.
The document is a work in progress, Pemberton said, and the next draft will be available at the end of next week. (The draft will be posted on blancoguide.com.) The next meeting will be on April 25.
Market Days Are Here Again
It’s the third Saturday of the month. Be sure to mosey down to the Square on the 19th from 9am to 4pm to see what’s for sale. Head up Pecan Street afterward for Zocalo Cafe’s free coffee tasting from 8am to 11am, followed by live music by Nelson Broyal from 11am to 1pm.
