Please don't cross TV off your list. You must visit to appreciate what is there. It is unlike anything you have experienced. You'll love it.

Linda and Peggy Thank you for not kicking me off the island before I even visited it! I'm sure it is a great place to visit even though I haven't been there. There's a lot to like for the people living there now too since they say it's even nicer than the advertising. Just don't understand why my comments would inspire so much of a reaction. I thought it was ok to be on the forum even if not living in the villages.

Not only ok but encouraged! (I'd use caps, but ...) I don't yet live in TV either, but spent March there last year, bought a place, and will spend march there this year as well. And when we stop working we'll spend even more time.

Do you plan to visit? If you do, let us know your reaction. I'll bet you'll fall in love in spite of the CDDs. Just something we have to be involved in and work with.

Be of good cheer....the Villages lifestyle can only get better as time goes by. Kick back and enjoy the ride. The developer's family isn't going anywhere and leave so many banks, furniture stores, income properties and all that jazz behind. It is in his and his family's interest to see continuing success and a lifestyle that makes us want to be here rather than anyplace else.

In the next 10 years, it has been projected by experts that know infinitely more than I about demographics, that 77 million babyboomers will be retiring. It is projected that fully 1/3 of that number will retire to Florida. I can't imagine developers with vision like the Schwartz and Morse families would not be prepared to convert that influx into positive, trend setting, advantage to their interests and the interest of The Villages, even after buildout.

I wonder how buildout will effect Villages property values with our amenities already in place? As building and labor costs naturally rise in the future, it seems to me competing communities would not be able to offer a comparable home and amenities for anything but much greater prices than we bought into.

From a business standpoint, the family name is forever linked to the Villages. I cannot imagine a desire to degrade the brand. There has been much said about the developer's control over media "spin". I submit the pursuit of that control only reinforces the position that maintaining and improving the image of the Villages is in the interest of the decision makers.

I don't know him or work for him, but if I bump into him on the street, I will thank him for his family's vision that has given my wife and I a retirement lifestyle that we never imagined in our working, family raising years.

Sometimes I think the rumors and disinformation are started by people that know what a great "thing" we have going and are sending up smoke screens and red herrings to keep people from finding out how wonderful it is here. That was tongue in cheek, don't get excited, it was a joke.

The Christmas Parade was great! Have a nice weekend.

to quote cabo35:

"In the next 10 years, it has been projected by experts that know infinitely more than I about demographics, that 77 million babyboomers will be retiring. It is projected that fully 1/3 of that number will retire to Florida."

That's like another 26 Million retired folks in Florida! Wonder where they will live?

It's going to get pretty crowded at the malls, restaurants, roads, golf courses, etc etc.

Presently don't live in TV, but went down last year on the "Preview"--only way to go! We have looked into other retirement communities and nothing compares to TV.

If you want info on anything TV has to offer, you've come to the right place.

From my perspective controversy is one of the things which keeps us "hoppin' 'n' poppin" if for nothing else but to keep our brains active. It doesn't matter whether I agree or disagree with the various points of view especially since I don't yet live in TV and cannot speak to the issues. How lucky we are to live in these United States where our right to free speech is protected by the first amendment of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the United States.

IMHO It appears to me that if there are concerns about how things are run then it is incumbent upon those concerned residents of TV to become involved in the governing of the community and as I understand that means attending CDD meetings.

If nothing else the question has got us all thinking........
