Maple Ridge Newsletter
Greetings Maple Ridge,
As another great Summer in Maple Ridge winds down, the Fall season will mark the return of some of our favorite community events and Maple Ridge Sports. Next week the Maple Ridgemen Softball team will take the field for their fall season and Men’s and Women’s Doubles tennis teams will begin play. The pool will close on September 12th however pavilion and tennis court reservations are available all year for members.
This September marks the 1 year anniversary of the return of the Maple Ridge Newsletter and we hope you have enjoyed the newsletter and find it informative. Moving forward with the newsletter we would like to encourage more input from you and always welcome your submissions in the “Shout out” and ‘RidgePics” section. We also aim to start a “Meet Your Neighbor” section next month that will feature three neighbors in a Q&A format. Please use the “Suggestion Box” section below to let us know what you want to hear about in future newsletters.
We hope you enjoy the September edition of the Maple Ridge Newsletter!

Permanent Member Consent Form
County Recording of Status
This month we will finish the process of 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 our fourth and final signing day of the year at the pavilion on September 14th between 7:00 and 8:00pm. If you are a permanent member please mark your calendars to stop by the pool for a few minutes during time to quickly sign your consent form. All members listed on the deed of your home should be signers on the consent form.

Thank you Permanent Members
Partners in the Community
We have completed our first billing season under the new non-restrictive covenants which were developed solely to ensure Maple Ridge has the financial strength to maintain and improve our community. This much needed transition will ensure we are able to compete with the many newer communities being developed and also keep home values and buyer demand high. Thank you all for the overwhelming support to your community this year. We have proven (even to our lawyers that assisted us in this transition) that a voluntary membership drive with zero restrictions can be a great success when you have tight-knit community that comes together for a common goal. Thank you all!
If you haven't become a Permanent or Planned member you can come on board at any time! More information on Permanent Membership
