Coupland votes to incorporate

Coupland voted to incorporate, with 96 for and 19 against.  This was a huge turnout, considering that there are approximately 200 residents (all residents--registered voters, non-voters, children) within the proposed Coupland city boundaries.  Incorporation Committee Co-Chair Jack Piper said, "Thank you to the citizens of Coupland who voted to maintain our identity as a peaceful, small community."

To paraphrase Benjamin Franklin, who said, "We've given you a Republic, if you can keep it," today's Coupland citizens say to their descendants, "We've given you a close-knit, rural, beautiful community, if you can keep it."
