Maple Ridge in Transition
Greetings Maple Ridge,
It has been an exciting Summer in Maple Ridge and we have a lot to share during this transition month. The kids will be heading back to school and our sports teams have finished up for the Summer and now are preparing for fall competition. Many of our neighbors have taken the opportunity this Summer to improve their homes and landscape and Maple Ridge is looking fantastic throughout. There have been some incredible transformations to some of the homes in the community and it is great to see Maple Ridge looking so good!
Our North Division Championship Swim Team sent its top swimmers to the Gwinnett County Championships on July 9th-11th and continued their remarkable season. A MantaRay swimmer hasn’t won an individual county championship in quite a while and this year we are proud to announce that TWO Maple Ridge Swimmers won individual championships! More on the that in the “Shoutouts” section!
The kids are heading back to school and the swim team is finished for the year, however the pool will remain open until September 12th so be sure to head down to the pool and enjoy some of the quieter days this month!
Finally, this month we will have our first “Membership Signing Day” where permanent members will be able to quickly sign the Permanent Membership Consent form that will be recorded with the county by our attorney. More on that in the announcements section.
We hope you enjoy the August edition of the Maple Ridge Newsletter!

Permanent Member Consent Form
County Recording of Status
This month we will begin the process of formally recording permanent members and formally recording our new covenants and bylaws with Gwinnett County. This process will require a very quick signing and notarizing of the Covenant Consent Form for permanent members. We will hold two event days at the pool on August 8th between 2 and 4pm and August 11th between 7 and 8 pm. If you are a permanent member please mark your calendars to stop by the pool for a few minutes during one of these time slots to quickly sign your consent form. All members listed on the deed of your home should be signers on the consent form.
Please share your Suggestions or feedback
We would like to hear your ideas, suggestions or feedback to further improve Maple Ridge! If you have anything community related on your mind please take a minute to share your thoughts with the HOA.
Happy Birthday to those celebrating in August!
