WESTON, FL – Kings Point in Sun City Center (Kings Point Suncoast) has won a prestigious Florida Communities of Excellence Award, honoring the state’s top residential communities. The Awards are bestowed on volunteers and professional managers who have worked all year to improve the quality of life for their residents. This year, 27 communities from across the state were recognized. Vesta Property Services serves this community of 5,600 homes, managing a stellar array of amenities, plus Security and Transportation.
More than 500 board members, managers, and industry suppliers were on hand at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa’s Conference Center in Weston for the gala celebration. This year saw the largest field of entrants and the most corporate sponsors in the history of the Awards, and included the screening of the top three entries in the new “Community Video Showcase” category honoring the best community-produced videos.
“Every year the judges’ work seems to get harder,” said Alan Penchansky, Executive Director of the Awards. “A superb community is competing against another outstanding community and the margins are often very small. This year, for the second time only, the judges declared a tie in one of the categories.”
Kings Point was honored with First Place in the Disaster Preparedness category, Large Community. Vesta staff prepared a video for inclusion with the contest entry. “The Awards are a highly anticipated annual event for Florida’s private residential communities and the numerous businesses and industries that serve their needs,” said Ken Direktor, Chair of the Community Association Law practice of Becker & Poliakoff, a founding sponsor of the Awards together with the Florida Community Association Journal. “Each year, they spotlight the resourcefulness, creativity and dedication of volunteer board members and professional managers in addressing the challenges that condominiums and homeowner associations face.”
Now in its seventh year, the Awards focuses on innovative practices in communities from across the state. Winners are chosen from small communities (up to 400 units) and large communities by a panel of independent experts. The judges include representatives of leading state and local government departments and agencies, and officials at industry and non-profit organizations. Judges also come from the fields of journalism, resource management, education, public safety and public advocacy.
