Welcome to

POWC (Property Owners Who Care)

The purpose of POWC has always been to provide information to our membership.  POWC’s objective is for its members to be the best-informed individuals on the Island on matters of importance to the Island we love – whether our members live on the Island or have second homes here.  POWC’s purpose is to enhance accurate and unbiased knowledge of both Island issues and opportunities. 

POWC’s overarching vision for the City of South Padre Island is to have (1) 100% transparency in government and (2) a family-friendly environment for the Island.  (When one looks around the world, except for the Disney cities, every great tourist destination was first a great place to live for its residents.  POWC supports the City of South Padre Island attracting young families and building a strong economy for the Island that is robust all 12 months of the year.)
