Rules and Regulations Update

As part of The Landings Association’s continuous improvement process, Association staff and your Security Committee members have been working diligently for the past two years to overhaul our current Rules and Regulations. Following last month’s Board meeting, the proposed revisions were shared with the community, and resident feedback was requested. After making some of the suggested changes garnered from the feedback we received, an updated version was provided to the Governance Committee earlier this month. The Committee approved the recommended changes, and on Tuesday, July 27, The Landings Association’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the changes to our Rules and Regulations. The new Rules and Regulations, as well as our current fine structure, have been posted online (www.landings.org/resources > Governing Documents).

Attempted Burglary

Security responded to a possible burglary at a house under construction on Hobcaw Lane on Sunday, July 25. The complainant advised that an individual was stealing copper from a new construction site. Security made contact with the individual who stated that he worked for a plumbing company under the general contractor and was picking up materials that he had left on the property. The individual also stated that he gained entry under a pass for a different property where he planned to go fishing with the homeowner after he picked up his materials. Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) was notified and attempted to verify the information with the general contractor, who could not be reached. CCPD will follow up with the contractor. Contact was made with the resident who had the individual on his permanent guest list, and he requested that the individual be removed from the list.


Vehicle Accidents

On Sunday, July 25, at approximately 1:20 a.m., Security, Chatham Emergency Services (CES), and CCPD responded to a single-vehicle accident at the Main Gate. A vehicle entering the Main Gate collided into the median. The driver, a Landings resident, stated that he had fallen asleep at the wheel. The driver was not injured. CCPD cited the driver for the accident and escorted him home at approximately 2 a.m. A See Click Fix report was done to notify Public Works of the damages.

Security, CES, and CCPD responded to a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Tidewater Way and Landings Way North on Tuesday, July 27. The driver of the first vehicle stated she was on Tidewater Way (heading out of the Landings) and proceeded straight at the stop sign when she was struck by the second vehicle. She was not sure if she stopped at the stop sign fully or at all. The driver of the second vehicle stated he was on Landings Way South heading towards Landings Way North when the driver of the first vehicle did not stop at the stop sign causing their vehicles to crash. The driver of vehicle two complained of some injuries but advised he would contact his doctor when he got home. Security ensured the driver made it home safely.
