MUIRFIELD eNEWS: SEPTEMBER 7, 2016

In this issue:


Pond Safety

The office has received calls that several children were playing in the pond in Stansbury, the new development off Drake Road in Muirfield Village.

Please remind your children that the lakes and ponds around Muirfield Village are not safe for swimming, skating, or boating. Signs are posted prohibiting these activities. These bodies of water are retention basins and are subject to unnoticed fluctuations of water depth.

One activity that is permitted at twelve Muirfield lakes is fishing! These special lakes are available exclusively to Muirfield residents and their guests to enjoy. They are stocked with fish and no license is required in order to fish. The largest lake is off Muirfield Drive by the pool. The Muirfield Pathways map shows the locations of these lakes (colored in navy blue).

Let's all do our part to avoid unnecessary accidents. Please remind family members to enjoy the ponds and lakes without getting in the water!

Prospective Member Open House - The Country Club at Muirfield Village

Muirfield Association is pleased to pass on the following invitation from The Country Club at Muirfield Village:

Prospective Member Open House
Sunday, September 11
11 a.m.–2 p.m.

The Country Club at Muirfield Village invites the residents of Muirfield Village to attend an Open House event to discover the excellence of the family-friend country club. Open House attendees will receive a tour of the club’s recently-renovated, modern amenities as well as information regarding various golf and social membership opportunities.

Interested attendees should RSVP to Alissa Klein at aklein@tccmv.com or (614) 764-1714 ext. 116.

Parking in Muirfield Village

Muirfield Village is made up of over 100 culs-de-sac plus many winding and sometimes narrow streets. In these areas in particular, it can be tight getting out of a driveway with another vehicle parked directly across the street, such as a large contractor vehicle, trailer or truck. Sometimes, even a car parked opposite a driveway's end can be a problem for those trying to back out safely.

As a courtesy to neighbors, please consider asking contractors, guests and others visiting your home to park in your driveway or at least not directly across from another driveway whenever possible. This will also aid to keep the street clear so emergency vehicles can safely reach a person or property in distress. Your neighbors will appreciate your efforts!

Nearly all streets in Muirfield Village are public streets. Parking problems with nuisance vehicles (those with expired tags, flat tires, or other obvious mechanical problems and those that have been parked in the same location for a long period) should be reported to the police on their non-emergency number at 614-889-1112.

Dedication Program

As you walk around Muirfield, you may have noticed commemorative benches, swings and trees honoring family members and loved ones. These were placed through Muirfield’s successful Dedication Program.

Since the program began, a number of benches, trees, and a swing have been dedicated. In addition to being a wonderful way to honor loved ones, these offer a way to share in beautifying our community and common grounds.

The Muirfield Association is proud to offer the following:

For a donation of $300, we will plant a tree (Oak, Maple or Locust) and erect a plaque, identifying your family member or loved one. The tree could be planted in a selected area near the Holbrook Recreation Complex. The plaque will be engraved with the donating family’s name or the name of the person being honored.
For a donation of $1,400, we will install a swing and erect a plaque. The swing could be placed along a pathway or around one of our lakes. The plaque will be engraved with the donating family’s name or the name of the person being honored.
For a donation of $850, we will install a garden bench and erect a plaque. The bench could be placed along a pathway or around one of our lakes. The plaque will be engraved with the donating family’s name or the name of the person being honored.

Trees may be ordered any time, but are usually planted in the fall and spring when conditions are right. Benches and swings can be installed nearly any time.

This is a wonderful way to remember a loved one. If you’d like to participate in this popular program, please call Chris at the Association office at 614-889-0922 or email chris@muirfieldassociation.com for details and ordering information.

Resident Directory Online

Since the launch of the Resident Directory in April, we’ve had a number of residents add their listing. The Muirfield resident directory has been published and is online in the Members Area, but we hope to add many more households!

The purpose of the directory is to give Muirfield residents a way to contact one another. Unlike the original paper directory, residents can choose what to list and can add more than one phone number plus up to two email addresses.

If you have not added your household, why not add it now? You control what is included in your listing! The minimum information required for a listing is:

Additionally, residents may include some, all or none of the following optional information in their listing:

The directory is completely voluntary and no household will automatically be included.

Adding a listing is easy! Just fill out the online form or download and complete the form to add your listing.

Your neighbors look forward to seeing your listing! Need more information? Read the Resident Directory FAQs here.
