Boat Storage Lock Gate - New Lock/Old Combo
We’re replacing the lock on the boat storage lot gate soon, but the new lock will use the current 4-digit combination.
As a reminder, please ensure your stored items are parked “squarely” in your assigned parking space and not encroaching on the spaces on either side. Your fellow property owners appreciate your cooperation and consideration.
If you recently sold your watercraft or RV, or no longer need your parking space and wish to relinquish it, please advise the Infrastructure and Roads Committee , so the space can be made available for another property owner. Thank you!

Mahjong, Anyone?

The Social Committee would like to know if there is an interest in a monthly Mahjong game day.  If enough people respond that they would like to learn the game, it will be an activity held at the clubhouse once or twice a month. Also, people who already enjoy playing can play at the clubhouse at that time.

Anyone interested, please contact Laurie Bushey at . You can also call or text Laurie at 904-403-1580.

Cell Phone 911 Calls:
Verify It's Davidson County 911

An unfortunate and potentially dangerous circumstance experienced recently by one of our residents serves as an important lesson for anyone calling 911 for emergency assistance. The lesson applies to anyone making such a call from a cell phone.

When an emergency call is placed by cell phone, the call might not go to the correct 911 center. Cell phone calls are completed through the closest available cell phone tower and given that our location in The Springs is not too far from four other counties, that call could go to any one of a number of different 911 centers. So, if you need help and call 911 from a cell phone, verify right away that you are speaking to the Davidson County 911 center. If not, tell the operator you are calling from a cell phone in Davidson County and that you need Davidson County 911. That can save valuable time when time is of the essence.

Thanks to resident and volunteer firefighter, Walt Kruger, for checking into this situation with Davidson County Emergency Services and to Davidson County Deputy Fire Marshal Jacob Thompson for investigating the matter and determining the correct strategy.
