Fishing Derby a Huge Success!

On Sunday, August 21, the Muirfield Village Civic Association held a Fishing Derby at the Holbrook gazebo and lake. About 70 families spread throughout the pond area with around 150 people fishing. The weather cooperated beautifully and there were plenty of fish to be caught! Everyone had a fun time thanks to the MVCA, who put a tremendous amount of energy, planning and dedication into this wonderful community activity! View some photos from Sunday's fun on the MVCA website.

The Muirfield Village Civic Association (MVCA) is a voluntary organization comprised of Muirfield Residents. The purpose is to provide opportunities for Muirfield residents to enjoy social, educational and charitable activities with their Muirfield neighbors. The MVCA is separate from and does not receive financial assistance from Muirfield Association (the mandatory homeowner's association). The MVCA depends on Muirfield residents to sustain community activities.

The MVCA hosts events throughout the year for families, singles, couples and all residents! A few of the many groups and activities are the Civic Action Committee, Family Activities Committee, Empty Nesters Committee,Couples Euchre Group, Ladies Evening Mah Jongg Group, Men's Lunch Bunch, Ladies Luncheon, Breakfast With Santa, and the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

If you'd like to know more about the MVCA or to join (there is no cost), please visit them online at https://www.muirfieldvillage.org/.

Muirfield Association appreciates all of the hard work, commitment and enthusiasm that MVCA members have given to our community throughout the years. Their contribution has helped connect neighbors in Muirfield Village and has helped make this a great place to live!

Water Line Improvements in Muirfield Begin Monday, August 29

Muirfield Association is pleased to pass on the following announcement from the City of Dublin:

Beginning as soon as Monday, August 29, 2016, water line improvements will start taking place in Muirfield Village. This project involves the replacement of existing 2” or 3” water lines with new 6” water lines in several areas.

Work is expected to take place Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Some Saturday work is possible, but not currently scheduled.

Properties will be minimally impacted at the site of the water line. There will be on-street parking restrictions as work is performed. Signs will be placed to indicate the restrictions.

Access to driveways will be maintained as much as possible. If it is necessary for a driveway to be blocked, residents will be provided notice by the contractor at least 24 hours in advance. Mail and trash services are not expected to be impacted during the project.

When water service is transferred from the old water line to the new line, there will be a short interruption in water service. The disruption is expected to last approximately 30 minutes. Residents will receive advanced notice of the disruption.

After the water service is transferred, the water may sputter or be discolored the first time it is used. Running the water for a short period of time should resolve these issues.

Tentative schedule

Please note the schedule is dependent upon weather and other factors and is subject to change. Updates will be provided as needed on the City’s website.

For additional information, please contact Tim Root, P.E., Project Engineer at 614.410.4638 or troot@dublin.oh.us.

Save the date – Talks in the Park

Muirfield Association is pleased to pass on the following announcement from the Muirfield Village Civic Association Civic Action Committee.

In an effort to bring the City to the people, City Manager Dana McDaniel is conducting a series of "Talks in the Park" in various neighborhoods. The next event will be held in Muirfield on Thursday, September 22 from 6 to 8 pm, at the gazebo next to the Holbrook Pool.

Do you have questions about Bridge Park and the new pedestrian bridge, parks, bike paths, roundabouts, City finances, crime, controls on over-development or other City projects? Here is a chance to get right to the top with any questions or suggestions you have for the City of Dublin.

The format will mostly be informal, casual Q & A. There is limited seating, so please bring a chair or plan to stand.

Email the Muirfield Village Civic Association Civic Action Committee at cac@muirfieldvillage.org if you have questions you would like passed along to City officials to be sure they are addressed. No names will be used.

Watch for future updates in Muirfield Village Civic Association Civic Action Committee emails.

City of Dublin Surveying Trees

Residents may soon see a City of Dublin truck and a master arborist for the city, Jeff Myers, examining trees at the edge of some yards.

Because the City of Dublin is now maintaining all City areas, the City is doing an inventory of trees the City will assume responsibility for.The City has wide easements, 25 feet from the center line of the road, in Muirfield.

If a tree dies or needs pruning within this easement, the City will take care of it, including stump removal. This could save residents a great deal of money in tree removal expenses. Any pruning, if needed, will help Muirfield's appearance.

Letters of Support Requested

Muirfield Association is pleased to pass on the following announcement from the City of Dublin and Muirfield Village Civic Association Civic Action Committee:

The City of Dublin is calling upon area residents, corporate citizens and other U.S. 33/ S.R. 161/Post Road stakeholders to express your support of funding from the Transportation Review Advisory Council (TRAC) of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC).

This rural interchange is at the center of substantial local and regional economic development. Current and future growth is putting enormous pressure on this inadequate facility and the current design does not meet the diverse vehicular needs of this thriving area.

This project will include two new loop ramps that will eliminate the existing left turn conflicts to enter the U.S. 33 ramps. The intersections with both the east and west ramp terminals will be controlled via multi-lane roundabouts that will ensure viable traffic operations well into the future. Union County and the City of Dublin are requesting $18.53 million from MORPC and $20.68 million in TRAC funds for construction.

If you are willing to support this effort, refer to the information and template on the City’s website.

Please email your letter to Jeannie Willis with the City of Dublin, jwillis@dublin.oh.us, by September 14, 2016.
