Thank you to all who attended our Annual Meeting! Once again, we had a tremendous turnout. It is a pleasure to work and live in a community that has such strong support and engagement. You can read full details of the meeting in this issue, as well as view the PowerPoint presentation on our website (www.landings.org).

The Landings Association has received the Economic Impact Study commissioned last year.

The purpose of this study is to understand The Landings’ economic impact in the greater Savannah area, including how much our residents give back to Savannah via charitable donations and volunteer hours. It will help define and improve relationships with Chatham County and the State of Georgia, such that the Association can express expectations for representation, ensure that The Landings receives the appropriate level of services, and help resolve regulatory issues.

The vertical baler used to bale cardboard at The Landings Association’s Recycling Center is scheduled for repairs beginning Monday, March 7. Barring any unforeseen complications, the repairs should be completed no later than Friday, March 11.

The Landings Association’s Public Works Department has contracted Industrial Compactor Maintenance to complete the repairs and conduct the annual preventive maintenance on the unit. In order to have the repairs completed, the baler will be out of service for a minimum of five days (March 7-11).

If you are a frequent visitor to the Dog Park, then navigating the “chute” area probably is not challenging for you and your pet. However, for a new Dog Park member or visitor, navigating this area may be intimidating.

The chute area is the first gated area from which you enter the Dog Park. It is a good idea to keep your dog leashed until you get into the chute area, which allows control of your pet until you enter the large or the small Dog Park.
