Hurricane Town Hall Meeting and Swift911 Alerts: The Landings Association’s Hurricane Town Hall Meeting is Wednesday, June 12 at 7 p.m., in Plantation Club’s Ballroom. If you have not marked the event on your calendar yet, please do so today and plan to attend. Do not forget to sign up for Swift911 alerts and opt in for the notifications you wish to receive. Please don’t procrastinate if you want to be “in the know” for emergency alerts. You can sign up for Swift911 alerts through our website (www.landings.org/swift911).

Traffic News: As mentioned in last month’s article, vehicle operators, including those operating golf carts, are required to stop at all stop signs. Speed limits within the community are 30 MPH unless otherwise posted and are enforced by Landings Security and Chatham County Police Officers.

Please continue to use caution when entering our gates, as the gate arm may close after each vehicle. As part of the Capital Asset Management Program (CAMP) this year, the Marshview Landing and Marshwood gates have been replaced (as shown in the picture below of crews at work replacing the Marshview Landing Gate). Please remember, if a vehicle damages any of our gates, the cost of labor and parts will be passed along to the driver. Criminal charges also will be pursued for drivers who fail to report hitting a gate (e.g., hit and run, pursuant to O.C.G.A. §40-6-273).

Golf Cart Rules: As the summer heats up and students begin to enjoy their summer vacation, please be reminded that anyone operating a golf cart on Association-owned community paths must have a valid operator’s license pursuant to TLA’s Rules and Regulations. (Please see Rules and Regulations, Section F. Vehicles on page 42 of the 2019 Landings Residential Directory.) The driver must have the license in their possession while operating the cart.

Pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 40-5-24, a person operating a vehicle with a learner’s permit in their possession MUST be accompanied by a person at least 21 years of age who is licensed as a driver for a commercial or noncommercial Class C vehicle, who is fit and capable of exercising control over the vehicle, and who is occupying a seat beside the driver. Since January, Security Officers have observed and/or responded to more than three dozen incidents involving golf carts which include drivers without a valid operator’s license, reckless driving, unregistered golf carts, accidents, and Landings Club golf cart violations.

CPR/AED Training: We still have some open seats in both CPR/AED training classes on Friday, June 7. Session 1 is scheduled from 9 to 11 a.m., and Session 2 is scheduled from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in The Landings Association’s Conference Room (600 Landings Way South. Register online at www.landings.org/calendar. We look forward to passing along these lifesaving skills!
