The bridge is completed. The developer wasn’t lying. It just hasn’t been placed over the highway and connected.

I believe the first mistake would be listening to a person who is trying to sell you a residence

You can be happy to live here but not necessarily happy about everything in it. Connectivity, apparently has been affected by delays in construction and sales people can say anything they want. It may have been true, in their belief, that the bridges would be finished by a certain time period but that not being the case, you have little choice but to wait. Certainly frustrating but like everything else, you can probably manage well enough. I have lived in Hillsborough for over five years and am surprised at how long it took Brownwood to fill up. Some of the existing buildings have never had a tenant. This was a surprise to me but what can you do? It will all work out.

As Laker14 stated, I too am surprised there is even a Fenney to live in. When we bought our first Villages home in 2006 in Largo we were told the Villages was going to end at 466A and cap at 75,000 ppl and the resale on our property would soar since there would be no new construction! I know the realtors are saying what they are told to say, but come on!!

Don’t make decisions based on statements by a sales agent. They are out to make a sale and certainly not privy to all construction plans and schedules.

In our previous life my best half built homes for a living plus we built some for ourselves as well. We always had target dates put in place for the finish but never achieved them. Once we did however, ALL of the inconveniences were long forgotten. Take a deep breath and enjoy your time today.
Well, that is true but the Villages Management certainly knew that the end would be unpredictable so should have put a cushion on promises to customers, Oh -- wait -- that might mean selling less homes or selling homes for less money. Nevermind.....

There are issues with the bridge going over the turnpike. Rumored that the turnpike was holding it up. Could be a year before that is completed.

We have been trying to get answers for months. The updates in the Daily Sun today still do not mention the Turnpike (Water Lily) Bridge.
The Magnolia Plaza was supposed to be done last Fall and full connectivity two months ago.
It’s shameful that the Developer will not be open and update us about these promises that turned to lies.
Lack of transparency makes me think that they have something to hide.

Well TIGGER, you could say that, and you did say that and I wonder why on your first post.

In fact I have one word to say.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

There is no specific information about when the MMPs will be available. I'm pretty sure that the key factor in their construction is the development of Villages and roads (that Sumter County builds) south of route 44. After the roads are built, the MMPs that run beside them will be constructed. The primary reason that it is taking so long for the bridges to be finished is that they currently would have no links to any MMPs south of route 44. The work they are doing on the bridges could be done in a much, much shorter time but since no MMPs, they are working very slowly.

The Villages does not have Real Estate Agents. They are Marketing Sales people employed by the Developer and not Licensed
Realtors.
