Karen Marcus, the former Palm Beach County commissioner whose presence graced the board for 28 years, has hopped onto another dais less than one month after stepping down from office.
Marcus, whose much-heralded term ended because of limits on how long one can serve in government, handily was voted in as a director of the Abacoa Property Owners’ Assembly. She joins five other members – all volunteers – who meet monthly to address residential issues affecting the community’s 14 upscale subdivisions.
The Abacoa Property Owners’ Assembly also considers issues involving the commercial entities and businesses that make the Jupiter real estate for sale so valuable. Abacoa is home to a mix of restaurants, boutique stores, art galleries and other retail outlets that not only are assets to homeowners but also a draw for area residents.
One of the most recognizable “storefronts” at Abacoa is Roger Dean Stadium. Roger Dean Stadium is the Spring Training home of the Miami Marlins, formerly the Miami Marlins, and the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s also the base field of the Jupiter Hammerheads, a Marlins-owned minor-league team whose adorable mascot is named Hamilton R. Head.
Marcus, a North Palm Beach resident who was elected to the Palm Beach County Commission in 1984, also has joined the Abacoa Property Owners’ Assembly Community Architect Committee, a panel that reviews new construction projects, examines building plans and debates zoning variances.
Abacoa is a more-than-decade-old community off Donald Ross Road, east of Interstate 95, that spans 2,000 acres and includes a network of trails, bicycle paths and greenspaces amid its townhouses in Jupiter, estate homes and single-family residences. Amenities in the community include swimming pools, fitness centers, ball parks, a skate park for teens, tennis courts and the Abacoa Golf Club.
Another one of the community’s claims to fame is its busy social calendar, chock full of events year-round, and its variety of special-interest clubs and organizations. Among the groups neighbors can participate in are the Bike Club, Community Garden, Doggie Play Group, Empty Nesters and Lunch Bunch. There also are singles groups, a happy-hour group, a professionals group, a theater group and a volunteer group.
Waterfront Properties and Club Communities considers Abacoa one of its top properties because of its central location adjacent to Scripps Florida, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and Florida Atlantic University. Waterfront Properties has a team that specializes in onsite sales.
