Washington, D.C. – Florida House On Capitol Hill has named South Sarasota developer Marty Black to the Board of Trustees for Florida’s embassy in our nation’s capital. The Board of Trustees is comprised of civic, philanthropic and business leaders from throughout the state. Florida’s First Lady Ann Scott is the honorary chairman of the board.
Black oversees planning and development at West Villages, a 9,650-acre master-planned community in south Sarasota County, between the urban centers of Venice and North Port. The community will include 20,000 homes, parks, recreation and at least 3 million square feet of non-residential space. The community is being developed by a partnership that includes Mattamy Homes (www.MattamyHomes.com), the largest privately owned home builder in North America, and Vanguard Land, one of the region’s premier and well-respected land developers.
“We are very fortunate to have Marty serve on our Board,” said Bart Hudson, President / CEO of Florida House. “From Tallahassee south, Marty has a depth of knowledge about our state and a network of friends and colleagues that will help spread the word of Florida House. We are grateful he has chosen to accept his nomination.”
