Our Awards & Programs
Florida Communities of Excellence Awards
The St. George Plantation Owners’ Association was named as a 2015 Communities of Excellence Award winner for Financial Innovation – Policies and procedures to ease the impact of financial burdens during challenging economic times.
FLORIDA-FRIENDLY LANDSCAPING CATEGORY
The St. George Plantation Owners’ Association was named as a 2014 Communities of Excellence Award winner for Florida-Friendly Landscaping Category.
The Florida Communities of Excellence Awards is a unique recognition program that shines a spotlight on the positive and productive initiatives taking place in condominiums, homeowners associations and cooperatives across Florida. This independently judged program enables the top communities in the state to promote their accomplishments and raise their profiles while documenting their success and enabling others to learn from their examples.
The St. George Plantation Owners’ Association is proud to be a “Firewise” Community. The Firewise Communities Program encourages local solutions for safety by involving homeowners in taking individual responsibility for preparing their homes from the risk of wildfire. “Firewise” is a key component of Fire Adapted Communities – a collaborative approach that connects all those who play a role in wildfire education, planning and action with comprehensive resources to help reduce risk.
Elements of that program were incorporated into the Master Landscaping Plan (MLP) to help mitigate the dangers of wildfire to heavily wooded areas and often unoccupied second homes.
Florida Friendly Landscaping Program™
Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ is a set of nine guiding principles which help protect natural resources and preserve Florida’s unique beauty. After more than forty years of passive preservation, in 2011 the St. George Plantation Owners’ Association (SGPOA) embarked upon a long-term Master Landscaping Plan (MLP) for conservation and sustainability, incorporating principles of the Florida Friendly Landscaping Program (FFLP).
