This months’ department spotlight is on the Community Development Department (CDD). This is one of the Association’s smaller departments, made up of just four employees. However, they are tasked with a very large role – ensuring The Landings’ aesthetics remain at the highest standards to support and maintain your property values. To facilitate this goal, the department is divided into two primary functions -- Architectural Review and Community Standards.

The Dave Scott Bird Trail is one of the many Skidaway Audubon projects that help educate, engage, and enhance our island! It has been active since the early 1990s. Where is the Bird Trail?  There are 200 bird houses on posts with baffles along the six Landings Club golf courses -- one to three bird houses on each hole of every TLC course. You will see two bird houses at the Sparrow Field and one house as you enter and exit the Main Gate. How do you know it is a Bird Trail house? The Trail houses proudly display our bluebird logo!

“That’s how we’ve always done it” is not an acceptable approach to staff operations at The Landings Association. Our team is constantly challenged to question why we handle a job or task the way we do, and ask “What if…?” When researching replacements for Landings Association assets, or working to improve processes, staff use a variety of methods to seek better and more innovative approaches to operations. From benchmarking against other property owner associations, to attending trade shows and meeting with vendors, to negotiating test periods for equipment, TLA staff always strive to manage efficiency and effectiveness with the best pricing. Below are some recent examples of the results from this approach.
