Can’t stop you from parking on a county street, road, terrace, etc.. The Villages does not have jurisdiction. In fact The Villages has a whole bunch of rules it simply can’t enforce.

I can't park under the eaves . That's where I have to keep my flock of plastic flamingos and other lawn ornaments. That's why I can't park my car in the garage.

Note, some homes in The Villages do not have garages.

I understand what you are trying to say but contracts become invalid for someone to enforce if State and Federal law preempts it. Another wards It becomes moot issue when they are in Conflict with State and Federal Law.
For example the powers to be try to enforce placement of outside antennas.
They Can't enforce this especially when there is federal law specifically addressing this and also case law backing it up.
People give up so many of there rights when moving here due to ignorant s of the law.
JMHO
Don't be bullied just because someone believes it to be a restriction they signed! The Powers to be know some of there restrictions are unenforceable but they try to enforce them by intimidation.

Just wish to clarify this?? Thank you
I don’t think that’s true about you have to put car in garage. By the picture this person looks like they have enough room for 2 more cars. They could of parked those 3 cars in the street & that would of been worse. My point is you better drive around TV & see how many cars are parked in in there own personal driveways. If the rules do say. should be parked in garage. It doesn’t say they HAVE TO BE PARK IN GARAGE! Like I was told once, if you don’t like something, move. Don’t want to sound mean but don’t get your neighbors mad at you. TV is a nice & friendly place to live!

I could never figure out the terminology, You can drive on the parkway but you can't park on the driveway

Annoying yes...but nothing ya can do about it.
Annoying when trying to get out of you’re curved driveway when some AH parked half way out in middle of the street and half blocking you’re entry. You can’t park on both sides of street and vehicle pass through unless the vehicles are half on lawns. The 2 foot concrete strip around CYVs are private property, two of the five foot easements in front yards.

Hah! They KNOW that you were thinking about complaining, so you are guilty. Everyone knows that. Want proof? Just watch what is happening on TV in congress right now.
