Thanks VillagerFrog. Very interesting. Please keep this updated. I don't represent the developer or the unofficial chamber of commerce as some on this thread do. Information is always welcome.

From an article in Smithsonian Magazine.

"The number of reported sinkholes in The Villages has spiked in recent years. An official with The Villages Public Safety Department told the Orlando Sentinel that residents had reported “several” sinkholes in 2016, though none affecting homes—an assessment matched by the archives of **************. Ditto for 2015; in 2014 three sinkholes affected six homes.

In 2017, by stark contrast, at least 32 sinkholes were reported by that independent news site. At least eight homes were affected, plus a country club, a busy intersection, a Lowe’s home improvement store, and the local American Legion post, the largest in the world. (The Daily Sun, a large newspaper owned by The Villages’ developer, reported on none of them except the one at the busy intersection, only to say the hole was “later determined not likely” a sinkhole.) In just the first three months of 2018, at least 11 sinkholes were reported by **************, affecting eight homes—all before sinkhole season even started, in early spring. Four more sinkholes sprang up this week."

The ******s are the unmentionable news source.

You seem to be interested in sinkholes. I'm considering making a fictional film called Sinkhole and maybe we could talk. I'm a filmmaker.

VillageFrog58, thank you for your observations regarding the sinkholes in TV. This is my first post on this forum and I registered in order to let you know that elevation was one of the most significant factors in determining where I purchased a house in TV and you brought it to my attention. I did external research on my own about causes of sink holes from many academic and government sites for a while now and I agree with your findings so far.
While there is no place with 0 probability of sinkholes in TV, there are factors which can reduce the probabilities of them and I believe you found one of the factors and shared this information, very happy!
