I just don't understand why some get upset by such things.
Probably because the complainers are mad that they (the complainers) can't build a future for their heirs like the Developer is doing for their future generations.

As long as the Developers keep the infrastructure upgraded for all the previous Villages built, they can keep building as long as they want.

The complainers must really have a miserable life to have moved to an area where the biggest percentage of the us are "living the dream" and they (again, the complainers) sit around wondering what they can complain about today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter.

The bridges are going to get built; the Developers are waiting on FDOT approval to proceed.

Am I being negative to the Villages..... NO, I'm realistic and say what I see. I love the Villages but the trend has changed to the negative for me...
I doubt that they'd be building houses if there was no demand for them. Almost all of the houses that they've built south of 44 have sold.

It's also a bit unfair to say that they haven't built any amenities down there. There are several golf courses and at least two rec centers. And I understand that a fourth town square is being built.

People still have the option of coming to the rest of The Villages by car. It's not as though a wall has been built around the newest villages.

No, there is nothing "wrong" with an A/C car but I think the rest of your post is a bit arrogant. Evidently there are many more golf carts than golfers which indicates many people remain "amused" with their "toys.". To some the GC is a 2nd car, to some their only means of transportation and to many just a part of the fun of enjoying the "villages lifestyle" or why else are there signs all over saying "Welcome to The Villages, a golf cart community." It's great your happy driving your gas guzzler but to some the GC is part of the fun here. No, I don't play golf.

(Note: I do NOT live south of 44 but just enjoy my toy golf cart but do understand the frustration of those who live SO44 especially when they were "promised" otherwise).

Since you’re privy to inside information, where is the fourth town square being built?

There will be a fourth town square built, it was agreed to in writing with Sumter County. Also building more Championship courses. All good things come to those who wait.

For a lot of the retired masses here, they don’t know what waiting is; they want instant gratification.

If you purchased your Golf cart from The Villages Golf Cars, they will loan you a golf cart anytime you plan on being in an area not connected to your neighborhood. The Villages Golf Cars - Yamaha Golf Cars - Club Car Golf Cars | The Villages Golf Cars

I know that doesn’t fix the connectivity issue but it helps.

The retired masses know what waiting is. They waited a long time to get here.
