I hope you’ve enjoyed watching the installation of the new playground at 600 Landings Way South. Our webcam (landings.org/athletic-facilities) shows real-time progress of “sticks in the ground” as The Landings Association transforms a dated, 20+ year old asset into one of the best, most inclusive play areas in the region. This is thanks to the residents that volunteered to work with staff to plan and design the complex, coupled with the successful Annual Dues vote last year. The basketball court has been resurfaced, and we are waiting for the concrete to cure before finalization. Also in progress is the replacement of the athletic field’s irrigation system to improve the turf for the various sports that use this area so heavily. Next up comes the rubberized track around the complex and the pavilion for shade. Stay tuned for updates as we enhance this centralized amenity for our community.
The Landings Association’s Virtual Annual Meeting is set for Tuesday, March 2, 2021, at 7 p.m. We will use the platform Microsoft Teams Live, and attendees will have the opportunity to connect via this web link (bit.ly/3kp850d), as well as to ask questions of the presenters. For best results, please join the meeting using the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers. You also can download the Microsoft Teams app and set up an account. Questions also can be submitted in advance to email@example.com
NOTE: This is a virtual meeting. In-person attendance is not permitted as we practice social distancing as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDD) to help flatten the curve of COVID-19.

As most people know, Jason Conley of the Village Walk Pharmacy has joined with Scott and Amy Pierce of Coastal Care Partners to open a COVID-19 vaccination clinic in The Village. In early February, large numbers of our neighbors answered the call for volunteers. Since then, a group of nearly 60 people have been working shifts every week to keep the clinic running smoothly.
The Athletic Field Complex Project is progressing well. Don't forget to check out the live webcam on the Athletic Field Complex that allows footage of the work in real-time. You can view live footage of the project by clicking here. You also can view the camera from The Landings Association’s website (https://landings.org/athletic-facilities).
February turned out to be our rainy season, so we can thank Emperor Numa Pontilius that it is the shortest month of the year. We look forward to March and to spring and to a return of drier, warmer weather that makes spring here so magnificent.
