Community Involvement & Partners
Great communities don’t just happen. They require forethought and cooperation. At Verrado, community involvement from residents and our community partners in Buckeye have helped to make, and maintain, our great community. Verrado’s community services come from a combination of two internal governing organizations, as well as from Buckeye community involvement and external partners.
Verrado is governed by two non-profit entities, the Verrado Assembly and the Verrado Association, both responsible for maintaining the integrity of our community.
The Verrado Assembly was created to facilitate and promote effective Buckeye community services, resident relationships, and neighborhood activities. Working closely with local community service organizations, educational institutions, and a variety of businesses, the Assembly’s endeavors include managing community service events and conducting social activities. The Verrado Assembly also supports the creation of organizations that share special interests, like clubs, sports teams, and volunteer organizations, while actively promoting community involvement from all residents.
Guided by residents’ interests, the Community Life team establishes an exciting calendar of social, civic, and educational community service programs. The Community Life team serves as the central point of communications to and from residents and the Verrado Association, facilitating creative information sharing primarily through our community Facebook page and emails, interactive town meetings, and Verrado.net, our community intranet.
Verrado Community Association
The Verrado Community Association, Inc. is our homeowner association. It is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors currently appointed by DMB Associates, Inc. The Association is responsible for maintenance of common areas and other areas benefiting the community, including parks and trails.
As a resident of Verrado, you’ll have access to Verrado.net, the community intranet. Provided by one of our community partners, the intranet supports interactive communication within the community via personalized email and message boards. As an online community, Verrado.net allows clubs and organizations to plan upcoming events and post information at dedicated areas on the site, and makes community involvement even easier for all residents.
COMMUNITY SERVICE PROVIDERS AND PARTNERS:
Strong relationships and involvement with community partners have made a huge impact on the success of Verrado and those relationships will continue to play a big role in the future. We’re proud to be associated with the following community service providers and partners:
Summit Community Church
Summit Community Church purchased 7.1 acres of land from DMB Associates, Inc. in Verrado to become the first church to acquire land in the picturesque community.
The site, located at the southwest corner of Indian School Road and Sunrise Lane, will be the home of Summit’s worship center as well as an early childhood development center and preschool. “We have been worshiping at Verrado High School for several years now,” said Pastor Nate Schaus. “We are proud to have taken a next step toward a permanent location down the street in Verrado, which will allow us to connect even more with the community.” The church has already played a large role in Buckeye community services and Verrado events, and we’re excited for this next step toward a closer partnership.
Cox Communications offers the most technologically advanced and reliable products and services in the telecommunications industry. As our community partner, a full suite of communications products and services are available to Verrado residents through Cox, including Cox Digital Cable, Cox Digital Telephone, and Cox High-Speed Internet service.
Police & Fire
Police and fire department services are provided by the town of Buckeye. Firehouse 703 is a new fire station located within Verrado that services Verrado and the Buckeye community. This facility supports a variety of fire and ambulance services, and offers an area for Buckeye police to conduct follow-up. In addition, Firehouse 703 offers a multipurpose community room, which can be used for training, or as a meeting space for local groups and community service organizations.
Electricity is supplied by APS, the primary electricity provider in the Phoenix metro area. Natural gas services are provided by Southwest Gas, and water services are supplied by EPCOR Water Company.
