AAC takes steps to acquire recreation facilities in two villa communities

The Amenity Authority Committee is taking the first steps toward acquiring the recreation centers at the Phillips Villas and Soulliere Villas,as well as the amenity fees from the 300 homes that go with that ownership.

The Soulliere Villas were completed last year and the Phillips Villas were completed the previous year. Plans for the pair of courtyard villa communities were announced in 2015, and then-Villages Vice President for Development Gary Moyer described the “recreation centers” as a “pool and a postal station.” Both villa communities have been built in Community Development District 4.

The AAC on Wednesday agreed to move forward with the steps necessary for the acquisition of the two facilities, of which a third-party will ascertain their value.

“It is unusual for the Developer to move this fast. The Developer usually waits a number of years before making this move,” said AAC member Don Deakin, who also serves as a supervisor in CDD 4.

Deakin indicated it was a “positive” as the AAC will begin collecting amenity fees from rooftops in both of those villa communities.
