Asheville, NC, November 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Western North Carolina is inundated with beautiful places to live, and last week, one Asheville community was honored as the recipient of the Association of the Year Award, which is given annually by the North Carolina Chapter of the Community Association Institute (CAI). Biltmore Lake, located just minutes from downtown Asheville, received the award with a reflection on their past achievements and a look at what is to come. “Biltmore Lake embraces the mood of Asheville with its emphasis on the beauty of the surrounding natural landscape and with its many outdoor amenities, including a 62-acre lake, several hiking trails, campsites, and athletic courts,” said Bob Duffy, Vice President of Home Building for Biltmore Farms. “The community is home to several hundred families, and we look forward to remaining an important part of the region’s fabric in the years to come.” Construction began in the community in 2001 and has approximately 580 homes with plans to increase that number to 800.
The Community Association is responsible for almost every aspect that keeps Biltmore Lake thriving—from making budgetary decisions to engaging the full time Recreation Director to organize fundraisers for the community and the wider Asheville area. In addition, the Biltmore Lake Homeowners Association works through several committees to promote responsible leadership both locally and regionally. Within Biltmore Lake, the association was recognized for excelling in providing residents with unique opportunities and amenities, including an onsite tailgate market, lake and trail maintenance, and stewardship of the land. CAI also recognized the association’s work beyond Biltmore Lake, which also includes stewardship through their participation in the Adopt-a-Highway program. Each year, the community has also hosted several events that are open to the public, including their recent Arts and Crafts Fair and the annual Enka Lake Triathlon. Residents have also sponsored fundraisers for breast cancer research and non-profit Arts for Life.
