Welcome to POWC

POWC South Padre Island

Property Owners Who Care - "POWC" was originally formed by a group of concerned South Padre Island Property Owners to ensure transparency in local and county government.  Today however, YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A PROPERTY OWNER TO BECOME A MEMBER.  Our goal is to preserve, protect and ensure the quality of life on the island, for everyone.  Our strength is our membership, and that is you!

The Board of Directors and current membership works to preserve, protect and maintain this quality of life so highly prized by those who enjoy this special part of the Texas Gulf Coast.  Some of our goals include ensuring that due process is followed by the City of South Padre and by Cameron County governments; preserving, improving and maintaining the environment and parks on South Padre; promoting continued economic growth and encouraging a family-friendly environment on a year round basis.  POWC-SPI educates citizens and members about governmental happenings, environmental issues and other matters that may potentially affect the island as well as it's inhabitants and visitors.

POWC works to ensure that South Padre is not negatively impacted by changes in rules or regulations and that the citizens are well informed of the activities, developments and changes involving governing entities of the township and county.  
We provide members an informative newsletter entailing City Council Meetings as well as other information.  We maintain a website that provides members facts on current, pending and ongoing island issues.  Our quarterly meeting are open to the public, however we encourage you to become an Individual Member as our strength as a voice in this community is our membership and your participation is vital.  

Dues are only $50 per year and you can join in person at our new office, 2605 Padre Blvd, on the corner of Amberjack and Padre Blvd, or click on the Join/Renew tab on this website and fill out an application.
