ODENTON, Md., Dec. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Community Management Corporation, an Associa company, manages the master association HOA that won this years' Associa Green Award and would like to congratulate Piney Orchard Community Association, Inc. for its environmental initiatives.
The Odenton, Maryland planned community is made up of 38 neighborhood associations and more than 4,000 residences. The association is involved in green initiatives including LED lighting upgrades, shredding and recycling events, storm water management and green erosion control efforts, a nature preserve, effective use of green space, and a farmers' market along with ongoing "green" education efforts.
"We had so many wonderful submissions this year but Piney Orchard truly went above and beyond with unique and different ideas for events and activities focused on the environment," says Associa Director of Corporate Citizenship Annette Ratliff. "Environmentally conscious communities not only present a cost savings for the HOA, they usually see higher home values attached to the cleanliness and quality of life within the neighborhood."
For being named the 2015 Associa Green Award Winner, the Piney Orchard Community Association Board was presented with a commemorative trophy and the grand prize of $2,500 to go toward the funding of a future green project.
