HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, JANUARY 18, 2013 Kinneret Apartments receive high marks from HUD Neal Blaher remembers when Kinneret Apartments were first built. Now, as presi- dent of the Kinneret Apart- ments board of directors, it gives him great pride to know that the hard work and dedica- tion of Kinneret staff and his fellow board members have been recently recognized by the U.S. Department of Hous- ing and Urban Development (HOD). In an email to Blaher, Mark V. Sciullo, project manager of U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Mul- tifamily Program Center in Jacksonville, praised the board and staff on scoring a 98a on the recent tEAC inspection. "I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you and all of your staff on scoring a 98a on the recent REAC inspection. Your staff's hard work and effort has paid off. This is an excellent accomplishment considering the number of units maintained and the age of the facilities." The purpose of the REAC (Real Estate Assessment Cen- ter) inspection is to give HUD a standardized way to evaluate properties. It is a physical in- spection that scores the prop- erties exterior, interior, and building systems. There are point values for each item and properties loose points for each deficiency. The highestscore is 100. Theie are also letter grades given of A,B,C--depending on health and safety items. Heather Lomax, Kinner- et's on-site property man- ager, worked with her staff for months to make sure theywere ready for their HUD inspection. "Kinneret received atotal score of 98a. There were no exterior or building systems deficien- cies and no health and safety items found. There were a total of 23 units inspected, which were chosen at random the day of inspection by the inspector. Out of 23 units inspected there were very few deficiencies found resulting in only a total of two points lost. Because of the high score we will not have another REAC inspection in Kinneret i for at least three years," said Lomax. "I can tell you with much pride and confidence that each and every member of K]nneret's board holds a special place in their hearts for Kinneret, and especially for its residents. I think it is easy to conclude that these special feelings contribute to the remarkable level of dedi- cation I see among my fellow board members here," Blaher told HUD's project manager in a response. "But I believe most of the credit, goes to Carteret Management and the staffthey have here at Kinneret Apartments. Their knowledge, dedication and commitment to our facility find no equal. We are fortunate to have them with us." The Kinneret Apartments are the Jewish community's twin residence towers for low- income senior citizens located in Downtown Orlando.
