The developer builds to suit the business they try to attract. The developer cannot be Home Goods and cannot make Home Goods come here. But they wish they would, I am sure.

The fact that the Ducats have not proceeded with their third bowling center as yet leads me to believe they probably won't anytime soon. But , this is only my opinion and they could announce a new center tomorrow. As far as I know, neither center would be golf cart accessible. <snip>
John_W, that thread was about the parcel east of O'Shea's and is the same parcel that bagboy is referring to.

According to the Sumter County site, in March 2013 Steven Parramore sold that parcel to Wildwood Enterprise LLC.

In February 2015, development of that parcel was reviewed and approved by the Wildwood Planning and Zoning Board - discussed here: http://www.talkofthevillages.com/for...wnwood-141496/
The proposal showed the owner as Wildwood Enterprise and the applicant shown on that proposal was Alpesh Patel.

So I don't think there will be a bowling alley or hotel in that location. Maybe somewhere else?

Of course, I could be mistaken...
About 4 months ago, I was told by the manager of Home Goods in Winter Garden that The Villages would be getting a Home Goods store in 2015 and it would be located off 441, near Home Depot area. I keep waiting to see something in the paper about it coming soon.

I sure hope there is a Home Goods built somewhere in or near The Villages...I am beginning to think I am seeing and hearing things that aren't real lol.

All these large companies everyone wants such as Costco, Home Goods, Fresh market etc. make extensive surveys of areas, and all the urging from TOTV isn't going to sway them to move here if the numbers don't turn out to be profitable. Same is true by putting it in your yearly survey. They are very experienced at picking locations on their own.............well, with the exception of Target in Canada.

If you have ever been to the Tilted Kilt in Orlando, you would enjoy having that here too. I went one time with my 86 year old friend, he looked at the bartender and said he "wouldn't need a blue pill for that"...

Gracie,
No disrespect but, we will probably have 120k SENIORS living here soon and one hospital is not going to cut it.

There are options. Closest hospital to the Brownwood area is Leesburg at 10 1/2 miles. The Villages hospital is about 16 miles away.

Wouldn't it also be quicker to get to Leesburg, in the event of an emergency, because of all the traffic on Morse Blvd north of CR466?

No disrespect taken. I don't know how you get great physicians or teaching hospitals to come to an area but I would like it a lot.

I feel the Morse bunch have done everything they can think to do to get better health care here.

I think that emergency facilities in and out of the hospital will always be burdened during high population times.

Really great health care is the ONLY reason that I am not completely happy here. I miss our fine doctors and facilities from Cincinnati.

And if I were of parenting age I would miss our fine schools too. Maybe that is holding back the doctors.
