  • Skidaway’s electric power comes across the marsh from a substation in Pinpoint to a substation on McWhorter Drive. In early years, those electric transmission lines were carried on wooden poles, which still are common throughout the United States.
  • But wood is susceptible to the ravages of wind, lightning, storms, birds and insects, and this is particularly so when they are used to cross miles of open marsh and water, where wind gusts are not mitigated by buildings, hills or forests.
  • As a result, early Landings owners had their share of weather-related power outages.

  • Thank you to all who came out for our first 50th Anniversary Celebration event – Family Fun Day!
  • It was great to see the community spirit (especially the Sundew Road crew with their decorated golf carts), gather again, listen to good music, eat some good food, and see the children enjoy the new playground and giant games.
  • The next community event will be the annual Fourth of July party hosted by The Landings Club, and where your Association helps fund the fireworks.
  • The final, and biggest, Association event to celebrate 50 years will be September 10 at Landings Harbor. Look for many more details as the event date gets closer.

  • On Friday, May 20, Security and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to Delegal Creek Marina for a report of a two-vehicle accident without injuries.
  • A Landings Association temporary employee who was driving a company-owned Ford F150 stated he was attempting to turn right, and the driver’s side front bumper of his vehicle struck the passenger side doors of a resident’s vehicle.
  • The resident driver stated he was attempting to turn right into the parking lot of the marina when the Ford F150 collided with his vehicle.
  • No citations were issued.

  • Staff completed pressure washing the Landings Harbor Store, tables, tiki bar, and all surrounding buildings around the marina.
  • In conjunction with this maintenance, staff completed additional light checks to ensure all lighting in and around the facility are in working order.
  • The chairlift located in the Delegal Marina Sunset Pavilion became inoperable over the weekend. On Tuesday, Vertical Lift Systems was onsite and observed that the door latch pin was engaged when the door opened, which ultimately caused the lift not to operate. Vertical Lift Systems made the necessary repair to the lift and it’s fully operational.

  • Staff performed routine inspections in Phase II this week. Follow-up and requested inspections were conducted throughout the island. 
  • This week, 10 properties were contacted regarding a violation of the Private Property Maintenance Standards, and four properties were contacted to provide courtesy education regarding property maintenance standards.
  • The Marinas will begin operating with extended hours this Saturday.
  • Landings Harbor Dry Storage is anticipating a high number of vessel movements this holiday weekend. Memorial Day weekend in 2021 recorded 296 moves and 109 moves on Monday. To be sure you can get a launch time that best suites you, please use the BoatCloud App in advance.
  • We have been putting the finishing touches on the marina. A box air conditioner unit was installed in the dockhand shack. This will provide much needed brief moments of relief from the heat during the hot months. 
  • The team gave the benches on the porch a facelift.

  • If you are new to The Landings and not quite sure what you need to know or a seasoned resident looking for a refresher on life in this community, then the new resident webpage of The Landings Association’s website is exactly what you need. 

  • This new webpage, called New to The Landings?, is housed in the resources area of the website (www.landings.org/resources) and can be accessed via a “quick link” on the homepage. Although the information targets new residents, it is useful for all residents.
