the wish for public transportation in tv needs to be changed to wishing for better public transportation as sumter county transit does provide both scheduled bus service thru tv
primarily to shopping plazas.,as well as door to door service primarily for doctor's appointments both in TV and in a limited way outside of sumter county. 568-MOVE.

I agree w/MMC24's list, especially that we need actual security gates for every Village.

Also agree w/Handie's suggestions. I think Trolley Service would be great.

We also need:

Another facility like Katie Belle's, as it gets very crowded
Trader Joe's
JoAnne Fabrics
Calico Corners
Hobby Lobby
Michael's

I was in Michael's in Ocala today, and the cashier told me that Michael's will open in TV in Oct. 08. I hope it's true! I had previously seen somewhere that an AC Moore is coming to TV. I'd be happy with either, as they are fairly similar AFAIK.

Bereavement support group. It seems there is always an ongoing need for this type of group. We all lose loved ones at one time or another and I know how helpful this type of group can be at such a devastating time. :'(

Speaking from the other side of town near The Colony Plaza, I would like to see a Starbucks, a SuperTarget (not just a Target) more fast food places. I agree with a Joann's, Michaels, etc. I know they're just building Colony up, so I'll try to be patient. I would also like to see a good old diner/coffee shop, and I've always liked Denny's! Also, ditto on the security gates.

I know a lot of people would like to see real security gates. We were told when we lived in another part of Florida, that if we would "gate" our community, we would then be responsible financially for our roads. The county would no longer keep them up as they do not keep up roads that limit access. This is just a thought. Is having a "real security gate" important enough that we would want the expense of the upkeep of our streets.
