aaaaaaaaaaaaugh!!!!!

Hey everybody, I just saw a dead horse in the Publix parking lot -- looks like it could use a beatin'.

Ohhhhhhhhh, nooooooo, now I am looking really bad. But I could not resist. I must apologize for my outburst:

There is no dead horse. That would be awful.

I like horses -- though they have been known to bite me.

And my apologies to whoever I stole that line from. I think I read it long ago here on TOTV when a thread had reached the definition of insanity -- and I have been right there with it in this one.

Deed restrictions are binding on all properties that are subject to the same set of restrictions. Normally requires that 100% of owners of all properties subject to the same restrictions agree to changes, unless superseded by Federal, State or Local law.
Extremely difficult process to change.

ALL,
I never suggested changing the deed restrictions, I like the restrictions.

Also, I never suggested changing the way these are enforced by Community Standards.

What I was suggesting was a change in the REPORTING system, since this in the current implementation by Community Standards, I believe that this can be changed if enough people ask/demand a change. It has nothing to do with the existing deed restrictions or enforcement. My suggestion was to try to implement a way to limit "trolls" while still keeping anonymity for those reporting infractions.

There are a lot of very intelligent people here, and if we work together, i am sure that we could craft a system that would work better than the existing REPORTING system.

Just my humble opinion.

Also, I was not a victim of the most recent "troll" report, but I have a few friends that were, and I personally liked the items that were complained about.

Whose "likes" should prevail??? MHO= Restrictions as the now exist are fine, enforcement process is ok, I actually wish more complaints would be submitted and actions taken. Lots of Floridians love chain link fences.

If you would like to report complaints you will be very busy. Just take your golf cart or your car with a paasenger on board and drive around each and every street in each village to note each address and each infraction. You will be surprised how many infractions you will see. Just looking at the number of bird statues all over the Villages will keep you very busy. But after you do this to your neighbors you will have opened up a bee hive as people love their neighbors small, tasteful bird statues. The real purpose of this deed reporting system is to provide a mechanism to stop people from putting a tank statue or 24 three foot trolls in their front yard. In fact if anyone actually does this and submits thousands of deed restriction violations to VCCD you would see changes come quickly. I agree, keep the deed restrictions in place, but look to improve the complaint reporting system.

Some of us are happy with the existing reporting system.
If you follow the deed restrictions, no need to change it.
