and different colored rubber golf balls. "It has been very effective
with reaching a wide group of people, both young and old, and has
brought a lot of smiles to everyone's faces," Scott says.
Additionally, Viera's school system features some of the best
public schools in the region, having been recognized at the county,
state and national levels as some of the top-performing educational
institutions. The community has three elementary schools, a K-8
charter school focused on STEM education and Viera High School.
"The Viera School District is probably the premier district
within our market," Miller says. "We have a number of individuals
who want to live in Viera because of our strong school system.
That's very appealing to not only the family-unit buyers, but also
pre-family or empty nester buyers because a strong school district
promotes values in homes."
Pokrywa agrees, noting that education will remain an important
part of the community as it continues to grow. "We've worked
closely with the school board to reach an agreement where The Viera Company will provide sites for future schools as they're needed," he says. "That agreement is effective through the build-out of
all 20,000-plus acres."
As The Viera Company continues to expand and develop Viera,
its goal is to continually raise the bar for what it has built so far.
"We're constantly looking to improve on the development form
that has been very successful for us since our inception in 1989,"
Miller says. "We have many dedicated individuals who work for
The Viera Company that are proud to build one of the top-rated
master-planned communities in the country.
That type of success only comes from constant innovation, he
adds. "We're not satisfied with the status quo's form of development," Miller concludes. "We're looking for new innovative ideas
and best practices from other community developers from across
the country. We believe that you have to get outside the boundaries
of your own community to ensure you stay relevant and current." )
Within minutes at every home, Viera residents can enjoy the convenience of a trail
system, retail shopping and several recreational activities.
