POWC (Property Owners Who Care)

POWC was originally formed by a group of concerned South Padre Island Property Owners to produce transparency in local and county government. Today however, you do not need to be a Property Owner to join POWC.

Our goal is to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life on South Padre Island for everyone. Our purpose is to educate and inform citizens, to protect and preserve the parks and environment, and to promote year-round family friendly economic growth. Our mission is that our members will be the most informed voters on the island. 

Our Strength is Our Membership!
