Hurricane Florence update

Update on the aftereffects of Hurricane Florence
Hurricane Florence made landfall in North Carolina on September 14th knocking out electrical services, internet services, and even cell phone services.  Our community, much luckier than others, is slowly recovering from damaged homes and disfigured property. The return to normalcy depends on a number of variables; many outside the control of MGMA.  Within our means, the Board and all its committees are working diligently to bring our community back to functionality.  This will take time and we believe realistically can be accomplished by end of October; therefore, we ask for patience and perseverance from our residents.
Tree removal grace period

Tree removal grace period ends
The grace period for removal of trees without ASRC approval is hereby ended.  Anyone found removing a healthy tree after 5pm tomorrow September 28th is subject to a $2500.00 fine. Our ASRC will expedite any valid requests for tree removal once the request is received by Cepco.  Please continue to follow Storm Damage Tree Guidelines and complete Architectural Change Request Form as needed.
The Aftermath of Hurricane Florence
Posted on Sep 19th, 2018
Hurricane Florence has caused massive damage to our state, which will need to be addressed in the following months and possible years.  For Magnolia Greens we have downed trees and fences, damaged homes, lost of utilities, flooding and limited supplies.  We are thankful that the residents who stayed and those who evacuated are safe and grateful to the neighbors who have helped each other in many ways during this time.  Please click 'Read More' and read the important contents of the full announcement.
Street Drains
Posted on Sep 10th, 2018
Dear Magnolia Greens Neighbors,
Your Board of Directors and the Grounds Committee have been working hard on the flooding issues within our neighborhood. However, there is one major thing all of you can do to help that is not difficult but will probably make the largest impact on street flooding during Hurricane Florence.
We are seconding the message sent by the MGMA Board to please look now at the street drains around where you live and clean them of all pine straw and any other debris. Unfortunately, they will probably clog again once the high winds blow more pine needles and leaves into the street and the heavy rains wash them into the street drains. To that end, we ask you to periodically (when it’s safe) clean the street drains again of accumulated debris to help the water drain into our storage ponds.
Thank you,
Dennis Collene
Chair, Magnolia Greens Grounds Committee

The Police have arrested him twice. The first time, he was taken away via EMS.

Semi-Annual Dues Billing Clarification
Posted on Dec 16th, 2017

This statement is for the regular January 1st semi-annual dues payment in the amount of $301. due January 1, 2018 and late January 31, 2018, exactly the same as it has been in the past. Payments for the semi-annual dues not received by January 31st incur a $20 late fee. This has not changed.


Street Sign Lights
Posted on Dec 12th, 2017

At our annual MGMA meeting in November, President George Steelberg announced the beginning of a new project to improve visibility of our streets signs at night.  BOD member Ralph Maggio sought out solar lights that would enable the street names to be read. In addition to identifying street intersections, the solar lights would enhance the appearance of the street posts.  After sampling several varieties of solar lights and much testing, a viable option was chosen. These solar lights will bring a new look to our street signs while providing much needed clarity to street intersections and names.

The Board of Directors has approved the purchase of 17 solar lamps as a first installment of this project. You will shortly see our handyman mounting the lights on street sign posts on Grandiflora Drive with a goal of completion by year’s end. Grandiflora is our street with the most traffic and has a history of vehicle accidents. Allowing drivers to identify intersections more clearly is definitely a worthwhile endeavor. Future purchases will continue as we light up our street signs within our budget means. We look forward to improving our community and lighting up our neighborhood.   


Landscaping at Lanvale Entrance to Impact Traffic
Posted on Nov 29th, 2017
Landscape contractors will begin work on Monday December 4th at the entrance to Magnolia Greens on Grandiflora Drive at Lanvale Road.
This will mean there will be partial closures of the entrance for short periods of time to allow the workers to load shrubberies that are being removed into trucks.  Workers will be assigned to direct traffic  into the appropriate lane on either side of the traffic island during these lane closures.  All effort is being made to limit the length of time of these closures.
Please be aware of that while the contractors are working, it may take longer to get through the intersection so plan your trips accordingly or chose another route if possible.
Your cooperation is appreciated.
