FORT RUCKER, Ala. (August 14, 2014) -- Corvias Military Living offers many amenities for Soldiers who choose to live on post, from quality housing to community pools to lawn care to a recycling program, just to name a few.
And Aug. 21 from 4-6 p.m. at the Allen Heights Neighborhood Center (22470 Christian Road), CML will host an open house for those new to the community, as well as those who have never lived on base before, to showcase all it has to offer.
"Now that the initial development period for the program is complete, this is an opportunity for the Fort Rucker community to see all of the improvements that have been made to the neighborhoods over the past eight years," said Brandon Masters, communications manager. "This includes seeing the community centers, new homes, model homes and renovated homes."
CML also has a resident referral special right now, and the open house would be an opportunity for current residents to bring a friend to see a home and possibly make some money in the process.
Refreshments and door prizes will be a part of the open house, as well as mingling with staff so Families can connect with them in a casual environment.
"We hope to connect with Families and see what we can do to provide comfortable, stress-free housing while showing them the options we have available for them," said Masters. "We have a great product and our focus is to provide outstanding customer service."
Masters said that there is a common misconception that only Soldiers with Families are permitted to live in on-post housing, but not only are unmarried Soldiers allowed to live in CML homes, CML has a unique-to-Fort Rucker program for singles.
"Unaccompanied service members have the opportunity to live on post, enjoy the same quality of life and benefits as their married counterparts," said Masters. "The benefits include access to the community center, the great property management customer service they receive from the Corvias team and they are located only minutes from work."
CML's singles population continues to grow, and CML representatives are now beginning to tweak the program to offer events that are geared toward this population.
Service members who are E-6 and above, and all officers, are now permitted to be in the program, said Masters.
"There is a demand from this population to live on post, enjoy the same perks that are offered Families, and we have the inventory available," continued Masters. "Our focus has always been to meet the needs of our service members, so, coming up with this type of program only made sense."
Soldiers can either live by themselves and pay their entire BAH at the without dependent rate, or they can live with a roommate and have the opportunity to pocket some of those BAH dollars.
Soldiers who are interested in the program should contact the CML Leasing and Relocation Office at 503-3644 and a representative can walk Soldiers through their options.
"The great thing about the unaccompanied program is Soldiers have the opportunity to choose who their roommate is. For this reason, we don't encounter very many roommate issues," said Masters.
