And........that is one way!

There is one way to get the attention of the developer, and that would be a class-action lawsuit. A quick google shows many successful lawsuits against developers for failing to deliver promised amenities.

Any semi-retired lawyers out there?
If you're going to have a class-action lawsuit I'm assuming you have something from The Villages in writing that states when the bridge would be built.

This is something that was posted on NextDoor today:

I just had a conversation with DOT regarding the rumors about the "bridge" and the widening of the Turnpike. There is NOT any plans to widen the Turnpike.
DOT is working on final approval for the bridge to make sure that all required standards are in place and then construction will begin on the final work in late spring or early summer of this year.

I don't know what is true... but if this post is accurate The Developer is working with the DOT to put a bridge over the Turnpike. The DOT is reviewing... which is why the bridge is not being built.

Did everyone who is speculating about the bridge on this post do any research, like call the DOT, to find out the facts? You know... make a phone call? Or are you just speculating, suggesting a lawsuit, demanding information... stamping your feet?

I feel the pain of everyone who wants that Bridge Today. I would probably be in alignment with you if we were living with you lucky people down south.

IF in fact the final approvals have not been given there is not much more that can be done until they are in hand. Keep the Faith. Once you get the Bridge you will

probably wish for the old days cause you are going to have a whole lot of company from everybody up yonder.

Thank you for the factual report. Sadly the whining will continue.

Article in the Sun addressing the newest bridge and giving a new estimate for completion of the 3 previously planned. Coincidence? Maybe or maybe not.

I wondered the same thing -- did they read TOTV? I started a new thread to discuss the DS article: Connectivity Details Revealed

Un uh, you did not just put out some logical facts. Go to the corner, you are in time out for the rest of this forum. You can come back when you learn how to post outlandish, destructive, derogatory, blame the developer or crooked commissioners post.

It was my understanding (back when I was doing my due-diligence before buying) that when The Villages developers took over the development of the area of what is now called The Village of Fenney, it was already approved and ready for development. I can’t recall the original name, but it wasn’t “Fenney”. In any event, they clearly made a decision to continue to develop and that area was the quickest to market.
