PLHOA Fall Party
Due to COVID-19, the PLHOA Board has decided to forgo an in-person neighborhood party this year. We encourage residents to gather in the park with their own blankets and food, wearing masks and practicing social distancing, if individuals are inclined to do so safely and responsibly. A sense of community and connection is more important now than ever, but in the interest of public health, the Board is not comfortable sponsoring a communal gathering at this time. Stay safe, stay healthy, and check in with your neighbors when you can. We will look forward to gathering in person again in the future.
This is a tentative schedule. Always watch for mail station and Nextdoor updates.

NEIGHBORHOOD HISTORY AND AFFILIATE GROUPS
Christie Park is named in honor of Charlie Christie (1915-1993) who lived here with his wife Florence from 1982-1993. Charlie was a longtime board member devoted to making Polks Landing a family of neighbors. He planted the Norwegian Spruce which served as the neighborhood Christmas tree until it was cut down by the power company in 2007.
Polks Landing is home to Friends of Pokeberry Creek Beavers and Wetlands. They are dedicated to protecting the Polkberry Creek wetlands and beaver colony. Their mission is to preserve and enhance this unique environment and to be an educational resource for this fascinating ecosystem.

~ Polks Landing homes do not have mailboxes.
~ Nearby Polks Trail does.
~ Nearby Hidden Valley has their own mail station.
Polks Trail and Hidden Valley are not affiliated with Polks Landing, so the neighborhood HOA is its own entity. However, we encourage neighborhood residents to embrace our Polks Trail and Hidden Valley neighbors and friends as part of our larger North Chatham community.
