General Note: "The intensive cultural resources survey of the Maybank Highway Tract resulted in the identification of no archaeological sites or isolated finds. The Architectural Historian identified no historic architectural resources that were survey eligible (over 50 years of age) within the project tract. Further management consideration of the Maybank Highway Tract with respect to cultural resources is not warranted. Proposed land disturbing activities in the Maybank Highway Tract will not affect any significant cultural resources and should be allowed to proceed without further management consideration."
