At CCMC, we love it when our communities shine! So, we were particularly pleased to see the list of Ranking Arizona’s 2015 Best Master-Planned Communities. In fact, the public opinion poll lists five communities in our care among Arizona’s top six master-planned communities. That’s right… five of the top six master-planned communities are managed by CCMC! Coincidence? We’ll let you be the judge. In the meantime, we’d like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to all our top-ranked communities. We truly admire your CCMC style.
Combine Austin’s urban culture with the Hill Country’s wide open spaces and you’ll discover Belterra by Crescent Communities.

Designed to showcase the pristine Texas countryside, just miles from downtown, Belterra offers 400 acres of open space, creeks, and beautiful outdoor spaces that attract an abundance of wildlife. Intelligently maintained, the natural topography serves as a natural filtration system for water conservation. Established and thriving, Belterra will eventually grow to 2,000 households. Known for its vast open space and fantastic parks and trail system, this neighborhood also includes a community center, fitness center, aquatics area, and lifestyle programs. CCMC has been providing community management and lifestyle services to Belterra since March 2014. Congratulations Belterra. This award is certainly well-deserved.
