  • As The Landings celebrates our 50th Anniversary, I’m excited to share some of our technologies have now entered the 21st century!
  • As noted in this month’s Budget Box, we now have a new online payment portal. If you have a non-Assessment charge, such as boat storage, marina Ship Store purchase, or the like, you will receive immediate email confirmation.
  • If you have a balance, you then can go online and pay via credit card at your convenience, or you can wait until you receive your monthly statement. Either way, you’ll have easy access to a running total of your monthly charges. This service is provided through a company called Payfabric, so the emails will come from payfabric.com.
  • Since we launched this service in June, more than 500 residents have created accounts.

  • As a service-based organization, The Landings Association is constantly challenged to seek better and more innovative approaches to operations.
  • From benchmarking against other property owner associations, to meeting with vendors, TLA staff always strive to manage efficiency, while improving customer service.
  • Finance staff recently developed an online payment portal as an additional tool that residents can use to view non-assessment transactions, historical information for charges and payments, and initiate a secure payment via credit card for charges placed on account.

  • Upon arrival, officers learned that the first vehicle's driver ran the stop sign and struck the second vehicle, causing significant damage to both cars.
  • The first vehicle's driver was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign and causing the accident. Both vehicles were removed from the scene via a tow truck.

  • Estate Management began the dredging process at Lagoon 11 (which is located by the Marshwood Clubhouse pool) this week.
  • The process involves a dredge that removes the material buildup from the lagoon which is then pumped into dredge bags located along the lagoon bank.
  • Over the next few weeks, the bags will require time to dewater before the material can be mechanically removed from the site.
  • Weather permitting, this project is anticipated to take four to five weeks to complete.

  • No routine inspections were performed this week. Follow-up and requested inspections were conducted throughout the island. 
  • This week, one property was contacted regarding a violation of the Private Property Maintenance Standards.
  • The marinas will be operating on their normal summer schedule posted above this holiday weekend and Monday July 4.
  • Our staff are prepared for a busy weekend. Please use the BoatCloud App for your boat movement requests and remember to check in with a staff member once you arrive.
  • Those who use the app will have precedent over those who walk up and request a boat movement.
  • We appreciate your patience and ask that you come a little bit early if you need to load your boat prior to launching. If you come back after we close, please be sure to tie up your boat safely and securely. It may take a little time in the morning to get the basin cleared.

  • Americans are cutting back on lots of things, but golf cart safety definitely should not be one of them.
  • Taking the time to observe a few simple rules of the road, coupled with a heaping serving of common courtesy, could mean the difference between a pleasant trip and a horrible tragedy.
