Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) November 02, 2012
The Arizona planned community of Seville has been honored by the City of Gilbert (Arizona) with the Community Excellence award. Seville includes 2,881 beautiful homes, well-manicured lawns, gardens, parks that are easily accessible for everyone to enjoy, and neighbors that unite via special events and community fundraisers.
“Seville’s residents are proud of the neighborhood’s lush landscape and the area’s stunning facilities, but it is how the amenities are used to enhance the lives of not only the residents but of the greater community that makes Seville worthy of receiving the Community Excellence Award,” said Gilbert Mayor John Lewis. The honor was bestowed on November 2 at the 17th annual event.
Though the amenities such as the pool and tennis court encourage interaction among neighbors, it is Seville’s events that solidify relationships. Neighbors have worked together to produce the Spring Craft Event benefiting the House of Refuge which provides housing to citizens who need assistance, a community garage sale, and a number of ways to celebrate holidays including an Easter egg hunt, the Independence Day Train Ride Event and Celebration, and End of Summer Fling.
The community is managed by AAM, one of Arizona’s largest community management companies. “Seville is a jewel, and the residents embrace a true spirit of community, looking for those important and relevant human connections that make a neighborhood a home. AAM is very proud to manage Seville,” said Amanda Shaw, AAM president.
AAM has managed Seville since its inception in 2001 and oversees all of the vendor contracts, including landscaping, tree trimming, security patrol, and playground maintenance – many of the items that contribute to the overall beauty of the community, as well as the community website, an important communications tool. Nancy Wojtas, the AAM community manager, has been on site at Seville since 2004 and coordinates many of the Seville community events.
The residents demonstrate their love of community by looking out for the safety of its residents. The Seville Off Duty Patrol and Community Block Watch groups keep residents safe and sound. Seville’s website (http://www.sevillehoa.org) has the ability to post alerts and notify residents of important issues and emergencies, too.
The Seville Golf and Country Club, managed by a different company, has many amenities that are shared with the community. Once a year, the club members donate the course and the facilities for the day and welcome Gilbert residents to participate in its Charity Classic. During the past four years, more than $150,000 has been raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Breast Cancer Research, and the EPCF which assists employees in emergencies.
AAM works with many of the largest home building and community development companies in the United States such as Del Webb/Pulte, Shea Homes and Meritage Homes. Founded in 1990, AAM employs 350 people and manages more than 359 homeowners associations in the United States. AAM is dedicated to delivering total peace of mind to the boards of directors and homeowners in the communities it manages. http://www.aamaz.com
