Tis the holiday for lots of festive fun and fireworks. If you plan to get in on the firework action this Independence Day, please remember to brush up on the dos and don’ts for expelling fireworks in The Landings.

One of The Landings Association’s Board’s goals this year is to continue improvement in communications. As indicated at our annual meeting, we want the community to have the facts when an issue of concern arises.

Since the Annual Dues proposal was announced, I have heard two “facts” being circulated in the community which first arose during the debates over incorporation. The claim has been made that TLA misused money intended for other purposes during the time period that incorporation was being considered. As discussed below, these “facts” are not true.

The current number of COVID-19 cases for Skidaway Island is 19 positive test results. 

The Association will be reporting the number of cases in the 31411 zip code (includes all of Skidaway Island) each Friday in E-news. If you would like to monitor the data more frequently, please go to the Health District website (https://covid19.gachd.org/covid-19-cases-by-zip-code/).

To remind community path users to be courteous of others and to know when, and to whom to yield the right-of-way, Landings Security and the Public Works Department recently installed a hierarchy sign at the entrance of the cart path at Landings Way North/Landings Way South that runs from Bartram Road to Westcross Road.

Drop us a few lines (pw@landings.org) and let us know your thoughts on the sign, and if you believe similar ones should be located throughout the community on all the community paths.

As Landings Security continues evaluating methods to make the streets and community paths in The Landings safer, one of our preferred vendors has loaned us their Traffic Hawk traffic compliance device (pictured below). 

The device is a speed detection device that also is being tested for stop sign violations. In the coming weeks, you may see the Traffic Hawk deployed throughout the community at various locations recommended by residents.

Imagine starting every day with a treasure hunt. Not looking for the TV remote, or car keys, but a real, dig-in-the-sand treasure hunt.

As an aid to patrons using the Grab & Go program to borrow books, The Village Library has placed a collection of book titles on its Facebook page to create a virtual catalog. To date, there are photos of the books available from the Rentals, Just Off Rentals, and the Recommended Titles sections. The Library will add titles each week from some of its more popular author sections, including David Baldacci.
