The UNC Institute for the Environment will be conducting a marsh study of Howe Creek and along the areas east of Landfall, beginning mid-February. The study will include data collection, as well as utilize drone imagery of the target area that includes a portion of Landfall and Country Club of Landfall (CCL) property. The Landfall owners within this area have been sent notification of the drone study and a few of them, along with the Country Club of Landfall, have agreed for a drone launch from their property.
The KCI engineers have completed the initial Landfall sidewalk survey of the road rights-of-way. Now, KCI will be going back to re-survey some of the areas that may present more construction challenges because of the areas’ topography. Sidewalk construction blueprints are expected to be available for Board and Management reviewed by early to mid-March. Once blueprints are available, the Board will determine the next steps to be taken.
