Graduate students partner with Hill Country Alliance on preservation study

Twelve graduate students from the School of Architecture, along with regional planning experts, have partnered with the Hill Country Alliance to publish a study containing strategies to protect the Texas Hill Country and its resources. The Alliance is dedicated to preserving natural resources in the area, which reaches from northern San Antonio to western Travis County.

The recently published study proposes establishing a Hill Country Endowment to finance conservation and infrastructure improvement efforts, distinguish between areas suited for preservation and areas suited for development, and establish a Hill Country Trinity Water Conservation Area to manage the use of groundwater.
