Friends of Skidaway Audubon Presentation
On Thursday, Dylan Till, was the guest speaker at the Friends of Skidaway Audubon meeting that was held in the Azalea Room at the Palmetto Clubhouse. The presentation included an overview of The Association’s wildlife management program.
Community Path Cutback Program
This week, BrightView staff began working on the 2021 Community Path Cutback Program. This program is completed annually as part of our landscape contract. The program encompasses cutting back vegetation off (approximately 3 feet) of the path along with any vegetation that overhangs the path (approximately 7 feet). This program is completed annually to improve lines of sight for those traveling on community paths – a “years’ worth” of growth so that path stay clears until the following year. This week BrightView completed community path cutbacks in Moon River and began working in the Deer Creek phase of the community.
Lagoon Cutback Program
Staff began working on the 2021 Lagoon Cutback Program this week. This program is completed operationally and encompasses uplifting vegetation that overhangs the lagoons along with the removal of woody and new growth around the lagoon banks. This is completed annually to improve the aesthetics of the lagoon and to keep the banks clear enough to allow adequate access for lagoon maintenance personnel. Staff is currently working in the Moon River phase of the community.
Building and Grounds Department
In-house staff began the annual preparations for the holiday season this week. These maintenance items include pressure washing and painting the signage around each gatehouse. Inhouse staff are currently working in and around the gatehouses and will progress to cleaning the street signs throughout the community thereafter. In addition, staff is cleaning all directional and monument signage throughout the community. This work is anticipated to be completed by November 22.
Annual Mailbox and Sign Painting Program
On Tuesday, inhouse staff completed the annual mailbox and sign painting program. This year’s program included all mailboxes, yard plaques and street signs in the Deer Creek and Oakridge phases of the community. A review of the program will be completed this week with a punch list of items to be addressed next week.
Sports Lighting Improvements at Landings Community Park
Georgia Power began to upgrade the brackets and light fixtures associated with the sports lighting around the athletic field at the Landings Community Park this week. Barring any delays, Georgia Power anticipates completion by the end of next week.
Community Path and Curb Repair
This week, Absolute Concrete replaced 75 feet of damaged curbing on Bartram Road. The contractor is also repairing 18 community path panels from the Palmetto Club entrance towards Tidewater Way on Landings Way South. These repairs will be funded through the department’s operational budget.
Storm Drain Repair
