About Us

Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development (CARD) believes our region's true wealth lies in its unique character and natural beauty.

Our Vision

The Texas Hill Country developing in ways that preserve its character, open spaces, clear flowing waters, clean air and dark night skies.

Our Mission

CARD promotes sensible growth in the Wimberley Valley and western Hays County to preserve and protect our rugged natural areas and rural Hill Country character along with the local economy.

Our Values

To provide reliable information, while being nonpartisan and evenhanded in our approach to issues.

What We Do

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 the Trinity Aquifer.

- We advocate for the "Growth Corridors Plan" that preserves central Hays County/northern Comal County with low-density rural development, open space, and minimal demand for infrastructure (For details, see Transportation). Conceptual map

CARD works with elected officials, developers and others to preserve these natural resources.

- We use organization and communication networks to achieve our mission in four areas; Water, Development, Transportation and Communications.




CARD informs and educates about impending threats to the future of our community, and works with others to encourage active participation to protect this land we all love.

- We rally community participation in important local issues related to the environment and development to strengthen the people's voice in shaping our community.



What You Can Do

CARD welcomes the support of Wimberley Valley citizens who support sustainable development. Details on our Get Involved page...
