If what you were told is from someone other than the Developer (and I don't think the salespeople are the voice of the Developer), then I think you have a tougher argument.
I think, eventually, everything you were "promised" will happen. Things just don't happen in the timeframe you want them to.
If that doesn't work for you... then I think maybe The Villages wasn't the right choice for you.
Don't be angry... find a place that makes you happy. Life is too short.
Nothing has happened for nearly six months. Address the facts.

You know what would make me happy, a nearby grocery store, a couple of restaurants, hell maybe something as humble as a freaking gas station.

Let me emphasize again, what ****es me off is that NOTHING IS HAPPENING. NOTHING. BEEN THAT WAY FOR MONTHS.

There is no reason we should be putting up with that, notwithstanding your little "be cool" stuff.

There is PLENTY that has happened in the last six months and in the last six weeks and the last six days. You need to drive the turnpike and realize lots of stuff is happening in the building of The Villages, construction for miles and miles and miles, both sides of the road...... Plus you can SEE the metal golf cart bridge ready to slide across when given permission to be put in.

The grocery store people, the gas station people and the restaurant people have to want to move here, have the money put aside to move here, have to want to come here. The developer builds buildings.

Magnolia Plaza has a grocery store coming, doesn't it??

If you look at the huge number of resales in Fenny, I guess others share in your frustrations and have decided to leave.

20 homes in Fenney for resales is hardly a huge number considering the size of the Fenney (1805 homes) and is just over 1%. This is on par with most other villages. Resales always take a spike up in the 12-36 month range after a village opens as people adjust home sizes, have a little buyers remorse, miss the children/grandchildren, and a number of other reasons for changes.

If the distance to shopping were truly an issue then the residents in Buttonwood and Pennecamp would be selling in "huge number"s also as their distance to the nearest shopping is about the same as those in the new sections. But they're not are they?

Agree. A few complainers attempting to create a large issue. The complainers should look in the mirror for fault.

The development was called Wildwood Springs and the Wildwood Springs CDD was established on September 13, 2011. Your logic for the out of sequence development is sound. Negotiations for acquisition of the developments of Southern Oaks, Cresswinds, Landstone, Renaissance Trails, and other were also in progress at the time. In this case, Wildwood Springs was the low hanging fruit that could be picked and sold.

Great, what next, are you going to start espousing the virtue of Personal Responsibility and self reliance? Or better yet, say someone should read the contract before they sign it? Such horrid concepts!

Too late only a few lots in chitty chatty, as of this morning. Guess they aren’t worried about anything you are. Unless you personally are going to pay people not to buy, you have no shot at losing home sales. Am hoping you do not live alone, and that there is a difib in your house, and someone knows how to use it.

The newer area just not by golf cart. Yet!
As previously pointed out, read post #107
My comment about "connectivity" refers to golf cart connectivity, not vehicular traffic. I honestly do not think folks mention "connectivity" when referring to vehicular traffic. It is always referred to golf cart traffic being able to be connected.

So you should have a good legal case. I'm assuming you have all those promises in writing.
