Covid 19 Update ... Closure of Facilities
Posted on Mar 31st, 2020
We originally were told to shut down our facilities for 15 days with a planned re-opening of April 2nd. That has now been superseded by the State and the Federal Government.  As The President and Governor Cooper have now issued a “stay at home” directive, we must extend closing our facilities until April 30, 2020 - and this date is subject to change.  These are stressful times for us all but we must strive to keep the health and safety of our families and community in mind while we traverse this crisis.

Finally, in the next few weeks we will make a decision regarding holding the garage sale on April 25th.  Stay Well.  Magnolia Greens Board of Directors

OCH Pool Usage - Large Inflatable Items
Posted on Jun 17th, 2019
With only one pool available at this time, it is important to address the limitations of enjoyable space.  When so many residents are in the pool at the same time, large inflatable items create both a hazard and an inconvenience for everyone in the pool.

Clock Tower Tree Removal
Posted on Jun 15th, 2019
Our tree removal has begun at the clock tower but it has come to our attention that a mother bird has placed her nest in one of the holly trees.  This tree will stand until the young ones can leave the nest.  The symmetry will look a bit odd for awhile but our landscaper will monitor the situation and remove the tree when the birds relocate.  Please do not think the work is incomplete; we just want to give our feathered friends a chance.

Swales and Property Owner Responsibility
Posted on May 12th, 2019
Your Board in conjunction with the Grounds Committee has performed a review of all Magnolia Greens swales. The review was to ensure that the swales were sloped properly (fall) and to ensure that owners were maintaining their swales on their property. The Storm Water Permits require that the swales have a certain slope and be properly sodded for water runoff. In the last two years, we have correctly re-sloped and sodded eight (8) swales throughout Magnolia Greens. 

Pet Reminder
Posted on May 7th, 2019
Just a reminder that dogs are to be kept on leashes when off resident’s property and under total owner control while on resident’s property.  Our HOA General Use Guidelines state:
 “Pets must be leashed at all times when off the Owner's Unit and droppings must be immediately removed. Pets are not allowed on the Golf Course. Pet owners may be subject to fines assessed by the Association and/or the Golf Course operation for any violation and damage.”
The Town of Leland also has code ordinances concerning restrictions on pet waste and running at large (detailed information can be found on the ToL’s website). 
Failure to obey could result in Animal Control getting involved which leads to civil issues handled by the ToL Police Department.
MGMA asks that all pet owners be considerate and follow these simple guidelines so that all residents can enjoy our outdoors.

Hurricane Florence update
Posted on Sep 27th, 2018
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.

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
