Carole VanSickler (New)

Waterford held its annual meeting on April 19. Elections were held to choose board members George Serey (three-year term), Carole vanSickler (three-year term) and Cookie Manos (two-year term). The new board of directors is Cookie Manos (president), George Serey (vice president), Steve Williams (secretary) and Carole vanSickler (treasurer). John Gurley has resigned from the BOD, so one seat is open for director-at-large at this time. The tax resolution passed. There was also a Q&A session of homeowner concerns. Volunteers are also being asked to join committees. I'll have more information as more details are released. There have been changes to the tree removal policy, ARB guidelines and the guide to property inspections. Please go to TownSq for more info.

The events committee is trying to set up more fun activities. If you have ideas and can help out, please contact Holly at

There is a new community group in the process of being formed. It is called CF Middle of the Road. Howard Forman (Plantation Lakes) said this group has been formed to take care of medians by their entranceway and Waterbridge. They are looking to hire subcontractors to mow the medians as required by Horry County but will be looking for donations, etc. as a nonprofit. For more information, contact Forman, the group's president, at or call 215-630-8913. There's also a website:

The widening of Carolina Forest Boulevard is still scheduled for July 2021. The date may change due to weather delays but it will be great to have the future medians being landscaped and maintained along the roadway. Updates on the widening and other Ride III programs are on the Horry County website ( Scroll down to the RIDE III dashboard on the right side of the page.
