No ball games.
No Disney or other theme parks.
No concerts.
When they travel they must take roads that only go through little towns.
They obviously come from places where they don't have to wait for a table in a restaurant (both of them).
No Grand Canyon.
No cruises.

How terrible can all that be?

And if the same folks were here 11 years ago they would have said how can we live here there are no major stores or restaurants. And the population was 35,000.

I am sure the moabers and groaners are entitled to their likes and opinions. And it is obvious they moved to the wrong location.

Also remember you will find less crowded, very quiet typical retirement communities.........and not the life extending and enjoying life style.

The 98% of us that are happy as clams feel bad for some of you....for about 2.675 nano seconds
Yes, Yes!

Gomoho. You are such an addition to this forum. I hope you love your place in the forest and the sometimes colder weather and the things that matter to you.

I am sad that you have moved but so glad you continue to post here. Your wisdom and wit and humor are so enjoyed.

What bag? "The" bag? What's in that bag and why would I not want to hold it? In the unlikely event that the Morses "sell to someone else," do you think that "someone" will not want to sell the homes that have been built just like the Morses are doing? Frankly, I think I'm awake, but give me some more detail about what you think "the bag" contains.

Blyarbrough, stand next to me at Eisenhower rec center and tell me of the Greed. They could have purchased all of the stuff from a cheap furniture store but they had every couch and chair and cushion custom upholstered and the wall coverings are the finest and the chandeliers are copious. Anyone who has ever had anything custom framed knows it takes money and time to frame things. They took the offerings from the folks who offered them and placed them in lovely frames so that we all could share and honor our veterans. And that is just ONE rec center. They could have stuck that money in their pockets.

Their "greed" keeps thousands of people working and feeds their families while building a place unlike anywhere on this earth for older people to LIVE, not sit around and wait to die.

They keep working and they keep improving and I cannot thank them enough. My last years are so wonderful here.

Back on topic please people.

The OP wants ideas for the survey. I would expect the survey has questions relating to amenities because those who are managing them are the people seeking input. Stores etc therefore would not be relevant.

I for one would like them to make sure every gate has a camera that records the plates with a recording and signs that worn visitors that the plates of all passing through are recorded. I would think that would help reduce break-ins and help law enforcement know who was in a village at the time of a break in.

The retention ponds could use fountains in the middle that could be solar powered so that the water moves and doesn't become stagnate and smelly during the times when the water is low as many on this forum have said they sometimes do.

I agree that the street signs at the same level are just plain stupid and need to be changed.

If you want a real police force instead of community watch the villages would have to be incorporated and become a town which is a whole other discussion.

What opportunities? Rec centers, pools, clubs?

I've called WVLG and requested a couple times. I think direct calls from Villagers might go farther than a survey response.............more contacts, maybe improved results.

If I remember correctly from last year, they did ask if we wanted certain restaurants to locate here, so apparently it is relevant!!

why would i need your pools when we have 3 of our own with hot tubs,saunas, steam rooms, club houses, work out rooms and everything else you have.

we do however use the squares, the resturants, the college of knowlege, the shopping and the specialty pay shows the villages offeres.
