City Gains Easements to Construct Public Pathway along Glick Road
Muirfield Association and the City of Dublin are joining forces once again to enhance the lives and safety of our residents! As you know,
the city has been in the process of constructing a public pathway connection downtown Dublin to the northernmost areas of Dublin. That
means us! When completed, Muirfield residents will be able to hop onto the city’s public paths and travel downtown without
having to bike or walk along the road edge.
The city has completed the north/south paths along Muirfield Drive to Glick Road. The next section of construction will be the
east/west path from Dublin Road to Avery Road. To accomplish this, there were a couple of areas where an easement had to be granted
so the city can access private property. The Association Board of Directors granted easements through several parcels of Muirfield
land, recognizing that this city path will lessen our maintenance costs in those areas, increase crossing safety at Finlarig Drive,
Davington Drive and Castle Bay Court and enhance accessibility from Muirfield to downtown Dublin – good for all our residents!
We will continue to work with the city to make safety a priority in Muirfield Village and find ways to continue to maintain
our good working relationship with the city.

Annual Assessment Pre-Payment
As most residents know, annual assessment invoices are mailed or emailed each January and are due 30 days after invoicing. For some,
this amount comes due at an inconvenient time and is a lot to pay at once. Some residents have found the best way to ease this burden is
to pre-pay their assessment in monthly installments. By using this method, the invoice will be paid before it is ever due.
Assessments, just like property taxes, are always billed one year in arrears. The invoice you receive in January 2016 will be for dues
accrued in 2015. The invoice covering the year 2016 won’t be sent until January of 2017. The time to start planning for the 2017
invoice is January of 2016.
If you already pay bills online through your bank’s bill pay program, then you can also pay any Muirfield
Association invoices through the same program. There is no cost from the Muirfield Association to do so. (Please note
that this does not include credit card payments.) When paying, please be certain to include your lot number and/or your
address so your payment can be recorded properly.
