Default Golf Cart Access From Wildwood

I just witnessed a short parade of 4 golf carts from Wildwood entering The Villages.They come in on the grass hill around the pond at the intersection of 44a and Powell road.. I've seen this in the past and called Community Watch and they said they'd be taking care of it😞
I know when the Villages were considering purchasing and developing the land that is now Trailwinds one of the reasons they backed out was Wildwood demanded cart access.. Any one have suggestions on who to contact concerning this issue?l

I suppose you could start with the police and see if they are interested. The carts must have crossed/trespassed somewhere they should not.
Mind you if there is a way to open Trailwinds to carts and TV, I will use it!!

Yes they trespasses as soon as their tires were on Villages property

Be careful what you ask for.....that would be a two way access.

Call a board member of that CCD.
BTW were these returning Villager’s?

Maybe they were Villagers returning from somewhere. I'd call the district office first.

I wish I could be anonymous with this post but here goes anyway. We are not an elite group of homeowners. How would you prohibit cars from out of the area access to The Villages? I think the previous posts are a bit extreme IMO which by the way I'm entitled to!

You sure they weren't street legal carts? I drive Powell to 301 as well as up BV to 44A and onto Powell all the time in my S.L. G.C, and also cross 44 over to Sparr and my cart dealer as well. I can even drive up 466A if I make the left off Powell towards 301 then up because speed limit is 35 or under over there.

Aside from that, is there anything that makes golf carts on "Villages Property" only open to Villages residents? Never heard that but I guess it's possible.

And finally, why is something that needs to be reported? It's not like they are coming to take over the BOGO booze happy hour at the squares. It's just a golf cart unless they have machine guns mounted on top.

So you're saying that anyone who doesn't live in the villages is trespassing as soon as their tires (cart or car?) touch a public street (that is owned by the county) in TV?
