Default Village of Fruitland Park

Can anyone clarify for me who is developing the Village of Fruitland Park? I saw on a news web site there is a plan for about 2000 new houses in Fruitland and I cannot determine if Morse is developing this or another builder.
Something about golf cart accessibility was also mentioned.
Thanks,
Sue

TV has an option on that land, and is negotiating with Fruitland Park about permitting, zoning, utilities, etc. Should be settled in a couple of months. It looks like it will connect to TV over near Sarasota.

Anyone planning on attending tomorrow night's meeting better get there early as the hall only holds 100 people and they are expecting a large crowd.

Maybe to see the plans and road improvements and any future commercial developments. This development will impact those living close to the east side of CR466A.

They probably expect a large crowd from Fruitland Park. 4000 residents from TV moving into their town will change it forever. Unless someone stands to make money on this Villages expansion they're likely to oppose it. The 2012 census shows the population of Fruitland Park at a little over 4000 residents. I think there's also the issue of golf cart access. Presently Fruitland Park allows golf carts on some streets. It's not likely that the developer will want to grant these carts access to TV.

east side? 466A runs east and west.
I think village residents would just be taking up seats from the Fruitland Park residents. We will see he road changes and commercial development when it happens.

TV residents would have no standing in the meeting.
