Around the Lake: Group makes progress on median landscaping | Plantation Lakes

On June 3rd the board meeting was in the clubhouse. The whiteboard

appointed resident Stan Vitale to chair the newly created clubhouse renovation committee.

Stan spoke at length of his ideas for this committee. He will consult with a member from all current committees. Resident Joe Goodwin talked about adding two beach volleyball courts and a shower to the common area for a total of $ 25,000. Joe operates volleyball courts across Myrtle Beach. He is happy to help with the construction and teach the residents about the sport. The BOD said renovating the clubhouse is a top priority. You determine which funds are available beyond the costly renovation. The mushroom fountain in the children’s pool is painted red and white.

All three bridges are stained and sealed. Irene Gifford, the Firewise chairperson, communicated with Drake Carroll, the Firewise state coordinator. She said Plantation Lakes is a Firewise community and the paperwork is being corrected to reflect this. The BOD and Waccamaw management agreed that garbage compliance now requires the garbage to be on the curb by 5pm on Thursdays

and back in the houses by midnight on Friday. Discussions arose about teenagers making profanity in the presence of young children by the pool. Adult residents want a pool rule that removes the culprits from the pool area. There is no date to resume pavement repairs in the community, which ceased about 15 months ago. President Lori Buse said officers will need to go through the township to see where pavement repairs are needed. Officer Rich Carlson volunteered to visit and speak to lakefront homeowners who have not responded to HOA letters asking them to clean their yards.

On July 1st, the BOD meets at 6:30 p.m. Contact the board at

On May 30, residents Howard Forman, Rich Galante Sr., and Stan Vitale borrowed resident Monty Friebel’s truck and supplied 400 gallons of water for trees and shrubs on the new median at the entrance to Plantation Lakes. Thank you to everyone who spent hours in the water brigade for several days to counteract the weeks of drought. Carolina Forest Middle of the Road is an organization created to ensure that middle landscaping is preserved.
