Hello Landfall Residents,
I hope everyone is having a great summer! I apologize for the long email but there are a number of things that I need to bring to your attention.
Several questions have been received related to fishing, overnight parking, fireworks and how speed limits on property are determined. I hope to clear up any confusion on these topics. However, please reach out if you need further clarification.
Fishing in Landfall
When it comes to fishing in the Landfall community, it is important to remember any Personal Guest using the lakes, ponds, creeks and/or marshes must be accompanied by the Host. Additionally, motorized boats, boating and swimming are prohibited in these areas. Fishing in Landfall’s COA retention ponds and lakes is for recreational purposes only. All fish caught must be released back into the retention pond or lake. Catch and release fishing is prohibited from the following areas: street paving, bulkheads and bridges. Parking is not permitted on or adjacent to the road rights-of-way for fishing.
Please be aware that overnight parking is prohibited on all Landfall roads, vacant lots and common areas other than designated parking areas. In the event that you have a need to park on the street overnight, please reach out to Landfall Security. Permission to park on the street overnight may be granted on a case by case basis under certain circumstances, but may not be a permanent or long-term parking solution.
This time of year always raises questions about fireworks in Landfall. The Rules and Regulations clearly state that there shall be no discharging of firearms, guns, pistols or explosive devices of any kind, caliber, type (including pellet guns), or method of propulsion; and no hunting of any type shall be carried on or conducted on the property of any owner or within Landfall except as shall be explicitly approved in writing by the LCOA. Any non-resident individual or vehicle with unauthorized firearms or fireworks, as discovered by the Security Staff, will not be permitted entrance into Landfall. Fireworks are prohibited except for properly supervised displays explicitly approved in writing by the LCOA. We have received calls about firearms being used on the islands across the waterway from Landfall. Please understand that those areas fall in the jurisdiction of the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office.
Our streets in Landfall, not unlike those in the City of Wilmington, were evaluated by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Engineers to establish the recommended speed limits. When Arboretum Drive and Deer Island Lane were evaluated, it was determined that there are areas that have good site lines and a straighter travel path. As a result, the NCDOT recommended that 30mph would be a safe maximum travel speed for these roads as long as the 30mph is maintained and everyone adheres to all posted road signage. Pembroke Jones Drive, on the other hand, has a number of areas with limited site lines and the need for the slower speed maximizes safety for everyone to include vehicles, bikes and walkers. Therefore, the key is for everyone to obey all posted speed limits within Landfall as they are established with our safety in mind.
Country Club of Landfall Rules
Finally I want to share a brief Country Club of Landfall (CCL) Rules excerpt from Jessi Reutter, CCL General Manager. Both Jessi and I appreciate your attention to the following CCL Rule:
The Country Club of Landfall golf courses and grounds are only available for use by Members and their Guests. Non Club Member Residents, their pets and guests are not permitted on the cart paths or club grounds unless accompanied by a Member. Members and their Guests must adhere to the Club’s Rules and Regulations regarding cart path usage only during non-golf hours and all pets must be on a leash at all times. Electronic leashes are not permitted.
Thank you for your attention to this matter and adherence as either a Resident/Non-Member or Member.
As always, we appreciate your support and are here when you need us!
Your Landfall Security Team
