Didn't you say you were looking at the cottages here? Did you recently move from Miami? Do I have you mixed up with someone else?

Trudy.

The commercial section of The Villages use the requests for new business to try to leverage those new businesses to come here and rent or build to suit.

Sometimes the businesses we want listen. and sometimes they don't. Usually businesses looking to expand depend on demographers who are hopelessly behind the times on The Villages. It wouldn't hurt to barrage the business you want personally but it hasn't helped much with Homegoods and Chipotle that I want.

If we banned IRRESPONSIBLE dog owners, there wouldn't be any dog haters.

Street signs should not be parallel to each other. Makes them almost impossible to read when you are going by from one way. Better option is to drop the cross street sign down 4 inches so it can be read from either side and not be blocked by the other sign.

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

I agree about an Apple store. I'd also like to see a good music store. With the number of musicians it should be a no brainer.

But what I think that everyone should do is scream at the top of our lungs about people roping off chairs at the squares. That is an issue that, if not corrected is going to cause a big problem at some point.

Op wanted suggestions to improve things in TV...........

Those who came, bought or moved and decided it was not for them that is their decisions and or opinions.

Those of us who love it here would like TV to consider the ideas of residents to improve this almost perfect place.

I totally disagree with the premise that some people who have bought in surrounding communities and enjoy all of the benefits of living in TV, is not based in fact. I have seen several people out and about in TV from other communities and still get the impression they want to have their cake and it eat it too!!!

There is nothing like being in TV!!!!!!! Being close by, is just rationalization justifying their buying decision. IMHO

Back on topic!!!!

How about signs at the squares about not saving seats.

And we have a replacement for Einstein. This is the best suggestion so far. Thank you.

I think that something that people who want Costco, or an Apple Store or different restaurants need to think about is the fact that those businesses have to want to come here.

The Villages can't just simply go to Costco and demand that they put a store here. I'm sure that The Villages wouldn't turn down any business that wants to rent space from them.
