Visits to the Lexington County Council are usually pretty serious affairs, with lots of talk about zoning, property lines and that kind of thing. But there was definitely a lighter feeling in the air at a recent meeting when the Council honored Saluda River Club for winning the Best in American Living Award (BALA) for Community Design.
Bill Theus, Walter Taylor, Andy White and other members of our team were on hand when the Council issued a resolution congratulating us on the BALA award. The prestigious design competition is sponsored each year by Professional Builder magazine and by the National Association of Home Builders.
The BALA award was presented earlier this year in Las Vegas at the NAHB International Builders’ Show (yes, we certainly did attend and had a fabulous time!). Saluda River Club is only the second South Carolina community, and the first in Columbia, to receive it.
We’ve framed the resolution and hung it with pride in our conference room. Winning the award was so satisfying…and getting an official pat on the back from the Lexington County Council was pretty sweet, as well!
