Palm Aire United
By Carrie Gaten, Board of Directors
Many residents of Palm Aire have probably heard of the organization, Palm Aire United. But you might not be aware of what this organization is or what it does. Palm Aire United was formed in 2009. We serve as an umbrella organization for the approximately 7 thousand condominium and homeowners within the Palm Aire community. We work to promote and enhance the quality of life and residential character of Palm Aire. We also negotiate, on behalf of our members, contracts for the provision of goods and services for our members.
You have probably noticed the many Green and White Directional and Public Service Signs PAU has installed all around Palm Aire. The signs installed by Palm Aire’s original developers were obsolete and in disrepair, so we have worked hard to provide updated signs. PAU is the only entity in Palm Aire that can fund this particular project.
Since Hurricane Wilma (2005), there has been a huge increase in Palm Aire associations that want to upgrade their landscaping and therefore enhance our entire community. Our current Commissioner, Barry Moss, and former Commissioner George Brummer have worked hard in obtaining increased participation in landscaping city owned areas within Palm Aire. PAU is continuing to upgrade the landscaping at the various entrances to Palm Aire.
Palm Aire United is about to complete a Bulk Internet project, with a contract negotiation with Comcast. It will be a major upgrade to our current Comcast Cable program, and will also provide a high speed internet program.
We have a wonderful Merchant’s Program that has been developed to bring savings to the residents of Palm Aire. About 2 years ago, each individual residence should have received a PAU Key Tag when we placed a green plastic bag on every door handle of every condo building in Palm Aire. Also, at the new owners interviews, new residents receive a Key Tag for our Merchants Program. The Merchants List is divided into 3 sections, with savings at many local restaurants and businesses. The Merchants List gets updated on a regular basis. We are placing this updated list in Condo Lobbies and on Swimming Pool Bulletin Boards. You can also check out the updated list on our website.
So, you can see that Palm Aire United stays BUSY! If you would like to get involved in this wonderful organization, we are looking for volunteers to help provide additional services to Palm Aire. If you have any skills in Technology, Security, Building Maintenance, Construction and Negotiating, Financial Planning, or Graphic Arts and Writing for our website, please contact us. We’d love for you to be a part of our organization.
Check out our website and keep watching for the many improvements that Palm Aire United will continue to provide to our beautiful Palm Aire community. Palm Aire United Letter 8-20-2017
