Default Code Changes For Developer To Put Apartments In Spanish Springs City and Other Places

The Billionaire contractor is taking the little City of Lady Lake to court to appeal the decision of the city to not change codes to allow second level apartments. You should let your opinions be known by contacting the city officials, maybe they can stand up to the contractor that wants these changes for their own benefit. Write, call or email the city; City of Lady Lake Town Hall

Go to a city in Europe and visit a plaza. There are apartments above the shops. So, since Spanish Springs emulates a Spanish plaza, it makes sense for apartments to be included.

I don’t care what they do in there buildings on there commercial property already built, nor do I care what the build on newly developed land. I do care when they intrude in already built out area sold to districts years ago adding apartments in already overcrowded area. You can thank the two puppets representing district residents on CDD board that approved it in best interest of residents. O wait one has since quit the board right after the vote.

Lady Lake would not be what it is today if not for The Villages

If they build a dedicated, lockable/remote-open/close parking garage with assigned spots for the tenants, I'd be right there in line to applaud the use of the upstairs as apartments.

If their plans don't include that, then I'll remain opposed. And I actually live IN Lady Lake, so my vote counts.

Also look at any large or even medium-sized city in the US (New York, Chicago, etc) they all have apartments or condos above storefronts. I think it's a wonderful choice for Villagers who don't want the maintenance of a house, and they also want the convenience of "city" living.
