Resident Directory Online

The new resident directory is online! If you have not added your household, why not do it now? You control how much (or how little) information is included. The minimum is the name of a head of household and a Muirfield street address. However, you can also choose to include the name of another head of household, children's names, phone numbers and/or email addresses.

The directory is completely voluntary and no household will automatically be included. The only way to be included is to add a listing online. Alternately, you may print off and return the directory form to the office.

Your neighbors look forward to seeing your listing online!

Mailbox Refurbishment Project

Last fall, Association staff began a mailbox refurbishment program in Muirfield Village. The projected including installing new, metal mailbox numbers to replace the old-style plastic numbers, re-painting the mailbox systems and repairing any damaged or missing components on the mailbox systems. About half of mailboxes in Muirfield were completed last fall. With spring duties completed, the staff is starting the project again.

Approximately one week before the mailbox refurbishment project comes to your neighborhood, the Association will place a notice in your mail slot. Any plantings around the mailbox must be cleared away from the unit. The Association will not be responsible for any damage to landscape materials interfering with the mailbox refurbishing. If you are concerned about your plant materials, you may want to pull them away from the mailbox post once the flyer is received.

While there is no charge for the new numbers and painting, any repairs required will be done and charged to the property owner. Missing caps will be replaced at a cost of $35, a replacement mailbox (with flag) is $40, and other repair costs are dependent on the scope of the repairs needed. An invoice will be mailed once the work is completed.

The Association does not replace mailbox flags. If a replacement flag is needed, residents are welcome to purchase their own standard, red mailbox flag. Decorative or specialty flags are not permitted. Examples of acceptable flags are:

The mailbox refreshment is being done by neighborhood. The whole project will take approximately three years. Timing will depend on many factors, including weather and the necessity of other projects. We cannot predict when staff will get to any given neighborhood.

If your mailbox requires repairs before the project comes to your neighborhood, you may request mailbox repairs any time in the Members Area of the website.

If you have questions, please call the Muirfield Association office at 614-889-0922.

Pickleball at Muirfield

Did you know that Pickleball courts are available in Muirfield? At Glick Road, several tennis courts have markings for Pickleball players… just look for the yellow lines!

Pickleball is a fun game that is played on a badminton sized court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis.

It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Ideal for older adults, but fun for all ages!

There is an organized group that meets regularly:

Join us every Monday from 9 - 11 am
No need to sign up!
Group meets at Glick Road Courts.
FREE!! Equipment is provided!!
