The THCHA was specifically organized to raise and maintain funds for the purpose of supporting the social welfare and economic well being of Mason County and the surrounding Texas Hill Country by protecting private property rights and the environment through research, education, publications and programs; to identify pertinent community issues; inform the public and motivate citizens to respond; and to encourage and enhance the role of local governments.
The founders of THCHA believe that the proposed 345-kilovolt LCRA-TSC transmission line is not the last threat of this kind that our region will face. The citizens of Mason County and this area must realize that future threats to our economy, way of life and natural surroundings may occur in the near and long term future.
