Arden Adds Amy Blackman As New Community Manager

Amy Blackman

Community life continues to grow at Arden, South Florida’s only “agrihood” and among the few places in the country to feature a farm as a central component to community life.

The master-planned community in western Palm Beach County recently added Amy Blackman to serve as community manager. She will be responsible for establishing positive relationships and supporting all homeowners with their HOA needs.

Blackman brings to Arden extensive experience in recreation management, previously serving as recreation superintendent for the City of Boynton Beach and recreation supervisor for the City of West Palm Beach. She is a licensed community association manager, a certified parks and recreation professional, an American Red Cross instructor trainer, and certified in Lean Six Sigma, a business program that helps improve processes within an organization.

An active member of the community, Blackman founded the Treasure Coast Chapter of the National Drowning Prevention Coalition and currently volunteers for the YMCA of South Palm Beach County and Manatee Elementary School in Lake Worth. She previously served on the drowning prevention task force for WaterSmart Palm Beach County and on the covenant enforcement committee for the Lake Charleston HOA.

Blackman is a native of Strongsville, Ohio, and she earned her bachelor’s degree in recreation from Bowling Green State University. “Arden is by far one of the most exciting new communities being developed in Florida, with new thinking and the best of everything. I’m looking forward to digging in and managing the day-to-day operations of this unique farm community,” Blackman said.
