Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development
Sensible growth in Wimberley and western Hay County-CARD is a totally volunteer, not-for-profit organization. Our mission statement: Our region's true wealth lies in its unique character and natural beauty. Protecting these resources protects our local economy. The Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development (CARD) promotes sensible growth in the Wimberley Valley and western Hays County, an area known for its abundant natural beauty and rural Hill Country character. CARD supports and encourages sustainable development and practices that protect local natural resources such as Blue Hole, Jacob's Well, Cypress Creek, the Blanco River and our aquifers. CARD works with elected officials, developers and others to preserve these natural resources. We educate and inform local citizens of impending threats to the future of our community, work with like-minded groups in the region, and encourage active participation to protect this land we all love.
