Bennett Paving is scheduled to mill Shellwind Drive from just inside the Deer Creek Village Gate to Moonbill Lane on Monday, July 8.  

Bennett Paving will mill the entry lane first and then progress to the exit lane thereafter. During this time, access will be limited to Moonbill Lane, Sundew Road, and the properties along the right side of Shellwind Drive. However, vehicular traffic is permitted to drive on the milled surface until the paving process begins. 

Both the gas and diesel pumps at Delgal Creek Marina are fully operational. The gas is non-ethanol, marine-grade fuel, and  can be purchased Monday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you have any questions, please call Delegal's Marina Office (912-224-3885).

Be safe, enjoy the holiday weekend, and make sure your tank is topped off before leaving the dock!

As you travel the island this summer in your golf cart, don’t forget about Georgia’s law to prevent distracted driving.

The Landings Association confirmed with the Chatham County Police Department that this law applies to golf carts as well as other motorized vehicles. It mandates that drivers can’t hold cell phones or place cell phones on their laps while driving. Texting and watching videos also is prohibited. Only voice-controlled technology is allowed to make or receive calls in your car or golf cart in Georgia.

In 1998, The Landings Association began a recycling program for old newspapers. In 2002, the Association expanded the recycling to include glass, paper, and plastic, which was collected through dumpsters.

“About two years ago, we had a water main break that was caused by the roots from a live oak in our front yard. The first indication that something was wrong was through an email from EyeOnWater notifying us that our water usage had spiked. With the help of Utilities Inc., we were able to locate the water main break and repair the issue. Thanks to EyeOnWater, we were able to catch the break in our system quickly, which ended up preventing excessive water use and saving us a lot of money!” - Joyce Marble, Landings Resident

In Georgia, we have 40 species of snakes that include six venomous snakes. On Skidaway Island, the snakes we most often see are rat snakes, garter snakes, corn snakes, and copperheads. Although this region is home to all six venomous snakes, the only one that I have ever seen on the island is the copperhead, which is quite common.
