New Neighbors is a social group open to women and men who are new residents in The Landings. We provide an opportunity for members to develop new friendships, enjoy a wide range of activities and social events, and network with people who have the same interests. Our members come from all over the world and know first-hand about the challenges and excitement that come with relocating.
On April 6, Skidaway Island’s The Village Library will expand its hours for patrons to Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Grab and go” service will continue for those who prefer curbside delivery. Patrons can view the Library’s card catalog online (thevillagelibrary.library.site) and call 912-598-1183 to place an order. The Library also will accept book donations on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.

As I write this, work is wrapping up on the first phase of the Athletic Complex Project. And with results from an online community poll, that area now will be renamed “Landings Community Park.” This name celebrates the broad appeal to Landings residents at all activity levels, whether active or passive, and its location at the center of our community.
All elements have been installed for the state-of-the-art, inclusive playground, sure to be a draw for the children and grandchildren who live and visit The Landings, as well as a selling feature to potential owners. The new pavilion is up, ready to provide plenty of shade and an escape from the Southern heat.
One of The Landings Association’s most important responsibilities is ensuring we have appropriate insurance policies and coverages. These range from property, to liability, to crime.
One recent example of how having proper insurance coverage in place is the failure of the Public Works facility generator. Working closely with our insurance broker, we successfully navigated the claims process, resulting in the replacement of the generator at minimal expense.
Such peace of mind is not, cheap. For the past four years, the average annual cost for property and casualty insurance has been $582,231. This expense is budgeted annually in The Landings Association’s Operating Fund.
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.
