General Manager's Update
Dear Landings Association Members,
Work progresses on the drainage and infrastructure improvements to Tidewater Square. As discussed in a recent video, pooling water is causing the deterioration of the brick roadway. If you missed the video, or any of our recent emails, you can find them in the archived emails section of our website (www.landings.org/archived-emails). Working with an engineering firm and multiple contractors, it was determined the best course of action is to add a new concrete gutter system, add additional inlet boxes for drainage, and repurpose bricks with the square’s center to repair bricks in the roadway. Those bricks are no longer manufactured, and they are cast in non-standard sizes in non-standard colors. By reusing bricks from the central pathways, we will be able to extend the life of the road. At the same time, we plan to install a concrete path through the center, to allow safer pedestrian, cyclist, and cart traffic, while also creating a much more even and safer surface for such travel. On a separate note, we still are researching various options for either repairing or replacing the deteriorating columns at the square’s entrance. Please look to future updates and videos on this project as work progresses. You also can view video from the April 26 Board Meeting to view the design and hear the scope of work in more detail. Board videos can be found on our YouTube Channel (www.YouTube.com/LandingsAssociation).
Thank you to all for your patience as we continue our 2022 road resurfacing project, which totals close to $1.4 million. We know it is inconvenient to close roads for a period of time during this work. However, we have learned from past projects that if we do not close the roads to traffic, the end result is not up to our standards. Your Association wants to ensure the best performance and the best result for your money.
Another recent upgrade to Landings Association assets is the new, rubberized walking and jogging path at Landings Community Park (600 Landings Way South). Following supply chain issues, the matting now has been received and installed, for a great, low-impact surface.
If you haven’t already, please swing by the Landings Harbor Store for some beautiful 50th Anniversary Merchandise. I personally can attest to the comfort and quality of the shirts! I hope to see everyone for our first event on May 15, with a parade, band, food trucks, and more. You can read details here. You also need your 50th Anniversary swag for the June 25th Landings Night at the Ballpark with the Savannah Bananas. Just visit www.landings.org/50th to purchase tickets.
Finally, school is out soon, so please be mindful of increased walkers, bikers, and others on our paths and roads. Not to date myself too much, but as they would say on Hillstreet Blues, “Let’s be careful out there.”
If you have feedback to share, please drop me a line (firstname.lastname@example.org).
