This year’s Market at 3 West Ridge benefits two outstanding children’s organizations in Savannah -- Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and Coastal Children’s Advocacy Center (CCAC).
CASA provides training and supervision to volunteers who advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the Chatham County Juvenile Court. CCAC works to make the judicial system more humane, coordinated, and responsive to the needs of victimized children.
CCA has moved the meeting time for the January 13 Meeting at St. Peter's Church from 7 p.m. to 6 p.m. to accomodate those who want to watch the College Football Championship that will air the same evening at 8 p.m.
The agenda for the January 9 Architectural Review Committee (ARC) Meeting has been posted. It can be accessed by clicking January 9 ARC Agenda. Applicants, owners, and interested residents are welcomed to attend the meeting on January 9 at 9 a.m. There will be a signup sheet available at the front desk. Please sign in upon arrival and indicate the agenda item of interest.
Cooler temperatures have slowed our boat traffic and enabled us to start on our to-do list. We will kick off the New Year with a spruced-up appearance for all to enjoy! One of our larger projects this winter is repairing the sea wall at Landings Harbor Marina. At the recommendation of Thompson Engineering, we are making necessary storm repairs to the piles and sheet metal. The company chosen for the job, The Industrial Company (TIC), has extensive experience with this type of repair and should be completed well before spring 2020.
In 2020, The One Hundred Children’s Foundation (The OHCF), a not-for-profit organization, is celebrating its 25th anniversary of raising funds to benefit the pediatric health, education, and wellness initiatives for the children of Savannah and other areas of the Coastal Empire.
Water use falls into a plethora of subcategories (e.g., drinking water, showers, operating a washing machine, et al.), while most outdoor usage is used for irrigation purposes. Surprising to some, irrigation water use accounts for almost 50% of all residential potable water.
Over the last several years, our community has made significant strides through water conservation in the form of the installation of shallow wells, reducing the turf footprint of lawns, installing smart sensors and clocks on irrigation systems, performing irrigation audits, and xeriscaping techniques.
