Happy New Year Maple Ridge!
Happy New Year, Maple Ridge,
2020 was difficult for us all, however our community continues to grow stronger than ever. Your Maple Ridge Board continues to work on ways to improve our home values and offer new options for membership status to help our community now and in the future. These exciting initiatives are available to read in the November and December newsletters. If you have questions or suggestions to further improve Maple Ridge, please attend our next community HOA meeting noted in the "Announcements" section!
Thank you to everyone that participated in our December "Light Up Maple Ridge event"! From traditional wreaths to larger than life blow-ups, many of our neighbors made the season bright! Sugarloaf United Methodist Church even featured some of our brightest neighborhood homes in their "Night of Lights" event! Our social committee selected winners in 3 categories:
Through a Child Eyes - Inflatables, characters, music, anything to make the kids “ooh” and “ahh”
Clark Griswold (Christmas Vacation) - Full throttle lights and festive decorations
Maple Ridge Masterpiece - Overall grand prize winner
Take a look at the top winners and many other beautiful homes are highlighted in our "Ridge Pics" section.
We hope you each have happiness and health in this new year!
Happy New Year!

South Scales Entrance Update
The installation of new metal fencing between the brick columns, new signs and column lighting will be installed this month at the South Scales entrance! The Suwanee Creek Entrance will hopefully follow in February, however we are still awaiting the custom fabrication of the arched metal fencing for that entrance.
Community Wide Meeting
The board will hold a community wide meeting in February, tentatively scheduled for the 22nd. We will discuss recent improvements, the transition to permanent member status and your suggestions to further improve our community. For more information on the current initiatives underway, please read the HOA Update from November and December newsletters.
Please share your Suggestions or feedback
As we enter a new year 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!
