As you may know, one of the goals of the Security Department is to assist in emergencies, and the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is no exception. Employees have remained vigilant and enacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) protocols to assist in protecting ourselves and each other from the virus. At the time of this writing, we have held three virtual meetings for TLA’s Emergency Action Team and continued communications with local Emergency Management agencies, Savannah/Hilton Head Airport, Chatham Emergency Services, and Chatham County Police Department. We also are in contact with approximately 75 other gated communities throughout the country and are staying abreast of their response levels and developing trends.
Spring is in full swing at the Marinas! In addition to the uptick in boaters hitting the water, we are continuing upgrades to Landings Harbor and Delegal Creek Marina.
Fiberglass rods have replaced rusty, metal rods in our dock systems at both Marinas, adding to the integrity of those important access points. We also have replaced all the floorboards at the Harbor Marina’s fish cleaning station in anticipation of the fish starting to bite in earnest again!
Show us what you and your family are doing for entertainment as we all do our parts to be responsible and practice social distancing. Is a family dance party just what the doctor ordered or are you the reigning champ of Charades or Jenga?
The first two months of the year began very strong for home sales in The Landings. The conditions improved significantly from a year ago in that the number of homes on the market was down substantially. With the increased home sales, the supply, as expressed in months of inventory, was down by 35%, thereby putting positive pressure on values. Additionally, our Discovery Visits were up 10% over the same period over 2019, and our sales at the Company grew by 14%.
I want to address the countless emails and concerns regarding the decision we made to suspend volunteer response by our First Responders temporarily. Let me start by saying how difficult this decision was for our entire group. We became medical first responders to not only help our community but to assist the PAID personnel on the island. Deciding to hit the pause button on our services has caused ALL of us a great deal of angst and sadness.
With all the recent attention being paid to the threat of the coronavirus, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless to protect yourself and your loved ones. Unfortunately, this focus on fighting such a looming threat can lead to tunnel vision and cause us to be less vigilant in other areas of personal and property protection. One area that we shouldn’t lose focus on is the ongoing importance of fire prevention. Viruses come, and viruses go, but the threat to life and property from fire always will be present.
