Poinciana's origins began in the 1960’s when nearly 50,000 acres of farmland and swamp were purchased by a company that eventually became Avatar Holdings, Inc. In 1972, Poinciana was formally established as the largest, unincorporated, master-planned community in the United States. Poinciana is a two-time winner of America's 100 Nicest Places to Live and offers a unique environment to enjoy outdoor activities and wildlife.Our population expanded by leaps and bounds between 2000 and 2006. Then came the Florida economic bust in 2008, which created a market with the most affordable housing in Central Florida today. Between that and a a new hospital that was recently approved, Poinciana is gearing up for a new boom as early as 2010.Poinciana spans two counties: Osceola and Polk; and is located in the southwest corner of Kissimmee, Florida. Our community is managed by a homeowners' association (HOA) named the Association of Poinciana Villages (APV). We depend on Osceola and Polk for fire, police, EMS and other support functions.?Demographics show that approximately 56% of the population is Hispanic, with many of that group being Puerto Rican. There are a significant number of residents from German, Irish and Asian ancestry.
