The Association of Poinciana Villages (APV), Florida’s largest homeowners association, is excited to announce the launch of its third Annual Poinciana Beautiful Awards. The community-wide home beautification program honors homeowners who do an exceptional job of maintaining their property.
The program first launched in 2016 and was a complete success. APV saw that residents started seeing the improvements their neighbors were making and, in the true spirit of competition, wanted to make their own home look equally as nice. These improvements also help to increase property values, increase sales and encourage developers and businesses to consider the community as a place to successfully invest.
“We are thrilled to see so many APV residents taking pride in their homes and how it has encouraged even more residents to participate in this program,” said Mark Maldonado, General Manager of APV. “We had 100 finalists for 2017 and we hope to see that number grow even larger this year!”
At an awards gala in January, the winners of the 2017 program were honored. Images of all 100 finalists’ homes were displayed throughout the event, with one homeowner from each participating Village selected as a winner. Each winner was awarded a beautiful plaque, a year-long family membership to the APV community pool, and a sign to place in their yard for the year.
Winners of the 2017 Poinciana Beautiful Homes of The Year were:
• VILLAGE 1: Joyce Morgan
• VILLAGE 2: Pedro Garcia
• VILLAGE 3: Enrique and Felina Llera
• VILLAGE 5: Rafael Rosario
• VILLAGE 7: Harry and Donna Severson
• VILLAGE 8: Jorge Collado Carlo
• VILLAGE 9: Dennis and Elizabeth Pickering
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Poinciana Beautiful Awards. APV residents who are interested in entering can send a picture of the complete front of their home, including landscaping, to Ivonne Martinez at IvonneM@apvinc.net. Entries can also be sent to The Association of Poinciana Villages, Poinciana Beautiful, 401Walnut Street, Poinciana, FL 34759.
