PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE – 9/12/2022

Dear Sea Trail Property Owners,

Believe it or not, FALL is right around the corner. I know you are ready for Pumpkin Spice Latte’s but it is still 90 degree heat index! Soon we will be able to enjoy the beautiful weather and slower pace of FALL here at Sea Trail!!

Just a few updates from the STMA Board:

MAC Elevator Ribbon Cutting: The STMA Board invites you to an Open House at our newly renovated MAC upstairs and also a ribbon cutting for our new elevator! The Open House will be held on Friday, September 16 at 5:00 pm prior to the TGIF. Ribbon Cutting at the Elevator at 5pm. Come by for a beverage and then stay for TGIF!

MAC Elevator Project:  The MAC Elevator is close to being operational! There have been 3 delays in scheduling the State of NC to do the inspections. The Department of Labor has been busy doing inspections of amusement rides for the Fall fairs and, of course, they are short staffed. The inspection date is now scheduled for September 15th. If everything goes as planned, the MAC elevator will be operational once it passes inspection. The elevator will only be operational when there are functions in the MAC.  The Access team will inform the group leader as to the process for getting access to the elevator for the individual group functions. Storm Damage:  On Saturday, Sunset Beach had a tornado warning and over 3 inches of rain in less than 2 hours.  Lightning struck the Olde Point Lane Entry Wall by the Maples entrance and caused electrical, irrigation and brick work damage.  Action has already been taken by our Landscape Committee Chairs Brian Blaine and Randy Warren as well as Riptide Builders to assess the situation and to begin contacting sub-contractors for repairs.  Donald Bean, co-owner of Riptide Builders was out cleaning drains on Eastwood Park with some residents during the rain storm.  A big Thank You goes to Riptide Builders and our Committee Chairs for being so responsive whenever an issue arises. Also, there was a breach in the wall of the pond on Jones 4 & 5 golf course and the pond has subsequently drained.  Sea Trail Golf Course has been notified and are working on a repair solution.

Entry Walls:  Prior to the storm damage, all 5 Entry Walls were completed including the Oyster Pointe Entry Wall and Guard House.  Hope you all are enjoying our gorgeous new Entry Walls.  We appreciate Riptide Builders for contracting this project as well as the MAC Renovation and the Elevator Project!Pink Palace Pool Closing:  The Board made the decision to close the Pink Palace pool for the season effective September 6, 2022.  We will now begin the plans and assessments to replace the pool deck area.   The Access gate will be open for access to the Sunset Room and the Creekside Building only.  Please DO NOT walk out in the pool area as there are areas of the deck that will be removed and inspected for our deck project.  The MAC pool will be open for the remainder of the season.STMA Board MeetingThe next STMA Board Meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 21st at 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm at the Pink Palace.   A homeowner open forum will be held at the end of the meeting.
