As has been speculated, my guess is that the person doing the reporting is someone who was turned in for his/her own violation(s), got angry about the unfairness of being singled out when others were getting away with the same thing, and decided to right those wrongs.

Honestly, I can understand that impulse better than I can homeowners who are mad at and urging a vendetta against someone who's following the reporting rules.

I thought they’d take them before closing but they just left them and I closed remotely. And someone stole a bush from the front, and a brick, they could have taken the planters....
I thought planters were exempt.

Default Deed Restrictions

I would suggest that everyone read the restrictions for each District before a blanket accusation regarding violations is discussed. I just reread mine and many of the others. Not all have the same restrictions. Mine in District 3 differ in some areas from those in District 8, just as an example. What is a violation in one area (District) is NOT a violation in another.

When I moved my final furnishings from up north to here the movers set a yard ornament in my front yard among some boulders. About a month later I noticed it and went to pull it out to put it in the back yard. I was stopped by my neighbors who liked looking at it every morning when they got their paper. So I left it there. Six months later I got a call from community watch saying I needed to move it, as it was handed in on a complaint along with many others in the neighborhood. Now the ornament sits in my backyard, where I can see it from the pool. Didn’t cost me a thing, but my neighbors were very disappointed.

If the complaints were limited to those in the same Village I would find the rules would make much more sense.
Aw yes. I think. I was told. I heard.

Original intent is not known by any of us. What is known is that anyone can report a violation anywhere.

A phone call? How does that count as Community Standards checking out complaints?
About a month ago I asked that very question, and was told by Community Standards that the lawn 'under the eves' is controlled by deed restrictions. On your porch is not controlled. So you have to change your lawn ornaments to porch ornaments to come into compliance.

Don't agree to the rules and then get mad at someone else because you aren't doing what you're supposed to do. To look for, make comments about, and try to attack the other person is extremely childish/toddler behavior.
And when u signed up to get a drivers license you agreed to abide by the law. Bet u speed on morse all the time

But, if you get a ticket, you blame your self, not the troll (I mean police).

After reading what you have written, am I to understand that allowing lawn ornaments under the eaves is actually a myth? Some deed restrictions do allow lawn ornaments under the eaves and some do not?

I'll never understand why the deed restrictions are not the same throughout the entire community (all of The Villages). Who actually makes up these deed restrictions?

Y’all are making such a mountain of a molehill. If you put something out and it’s reported and in violation, a very polite CS person will tell you about in a very nice way. At that point, you comply. No penalty. No big deal.

Some posters seem to think they’ll be shot at sunrise or publicly stoned. Lighten up. Life is too short. Namaste.
