Thank you LWR/SMR for the mention in the "A conversation with John Clarke":
When the housing market started perking up in 1993, SMR had already lined up its first builders.
“We wanted to get local builders we’d seen. We had some wonderful local builders here that took much more quality control measures than some of the national builders,” Clarke said, citing Lee Wetherington and John Cannon among them. “I think one of the great successes has been the quality of the builders we had from day one.”

25 years ago, we were honored and privileged to be selected as one of the original team of homebuilders at Lakewood Ranch. Today, we are just as honored to remain your preferred builder. We applaud your continued growth as an award-winning master-planned community! - John Cannon
