There Be Light
Our landscaping firm has trimmed many of the trees, so more
sunlight is now dappling Magnolia
Progress Energy should soon be here to trim the trees near the
streetlights, so more light will fall upon us at nighttime, too. The Board is working with Progress Energy on
the streetlight issue as well, to determine if there is a better system that
would cast more light but not be more expensive. You’ll be kept posted on this.
Schiller University, with campuses (campi?) around the world,
has left its Dunedin
location on Bayshore Boulevard
and moved into what was the Pinellas Hospice building just to the northwest of Magnolia Square.
Schiller, at this location, teaches mostly hospitality industry students. Schiller has also applied to adapt a house on
First Ave. Northeast
into a student residence, housing up to six students. Despite rumors over the summer, it really
will be a student residence, not a group home for whatever group of
undesirables the daily gossip was disseminating.
The garden in front of the office building will be planted
with annuals the week of October 15...Special thanks to Mark Smith for the hard
work keeping the pool in shape and fighting the dark stains during an
especially humid summer…And thanks to all the residents who maintain the
flowers in their own gardens; they look terrific…New blacktop has been applied
at the entrance road, and will soon be covering other areas, and the speed
bumps and other markings will be updated…We’ve replaced all the landscape
timbers that needed changing
for a check-up
If you have one of the original water heaters, installed
when Magnolia Square
was built in 1975, it’s probably due for a replacement. Older tanks can -- and do -- start leaking at
any time, and the money you’ll have to pay to repair the damage to your home
may be more than saved by replacing your old heater now. The office has a list of reputable firms you
might wish to call on.
It happens every year.
People are visiting or renting at Magnolia Square, and have to be
contacted. A call is made to the office,
but the resident is never told of it because the sign-in sheet at the office
hasn’t been completed. Or cars are left
in visitor spaces and we don’t know whom they belong to. Please – we can’t find you if we don’t know
you’re here. If you have visitors or
renters, make sure they sign in.
