Hill Country Conservancy Founder George Cofer Celebrates Purchase of Storm Ranch
Austin American-Statesman, September 7, 2000
The Hill Country Conservancy is founded, based on the philosophy that land purchases are utimately more effective at protecting open space than ordinances and regulations.
"Everybody hated the idea of seeing the place turned into a subdivision. This is better for our neighbors, better for us and, I think, better for the goals of the conservancy." -Scott Storm, landowner and HCC boardmember
This really is what I hope becomes a new sort of model for how we can get the job done. I think this is kind of the new wave of environmentalism.
