Scenic Texas, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and enhancing the visual character of Texas, announced the formation of its newest chapter, Scenic Hill Country, bringing the total number of state chapters to eight.
The Scenic Hill Country Chapter will work to preserve, protect and enhance the Hill Country’s scenic vistas by educating the region on the values and principles of the Scenic City Certification Program, a project of Scenic Texas and its program partners. Additionally, the chapter will assist municipalities in improving their lighting regulations and promoting the Scenic Roadways Program. Scenic Hill Country will initially focus its efforts in Bandera, Blanco, Burnet, Gillespie, Hays, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, Llano, Mason, Travis and Williamson counties, and may expand its boundaries in the future.
The chapter will fall under the leadership of Scenic Texas President Don Glendenning and the Scenic Hill Country’s executive board which includes Alan Bojorquez, president (Bojorquez Law Firm, PC), Floyd Akers (executive director, Pflugerville Community Development Corporation); Earl Broussard (founder, TBG Partners); Davin Fillpot (Davin Fillpot Architect), Michelle Fischer (city administrator, City of Dripping Springs), and Kate Meehan (chief financial officer, Bulltiger Productions).
Regarding the formation of the new chapter, Glendenning said, “The Hill Country is one of Texas’ most beautiful treasures. We are thrilled with the formation of Scenic Hill Country chapter and its mission to preserve and protect the natural and built environment of the Texas Hill Country.”
