But how would you rate the opportunities for recreational activities there in comparison to The Villages? Is there as much of a variety?

Default This thread is intended for Villages deeded owners taking the survey

As far as I know, persons not on the deed do not have input to the survey. The street sign issue is one that I have mentioned on previous surveys and will do so again. Thanks for including this. I also suggest restaurants and retailers I would like to see in the area, and happily some are coming. If you are a deeded owner, but not currently residing here, your input is appreciated. If you are not, I wonder why you are on this thread? There are many other threads for your suggestions of improving our community. I love this place. Best place I have ever lived. Good neighbors, kind people, caring friends. What more could anyone ask?

I would like to see some form of second ID pass with full privileges issued to single homeowners so they could easily date someone from outside TV.

Default Good one CFrance

I would love a second ID for another reason...I can't tell you how many times I arrive at the theatre WITHOUT my ID, no big deal except the "ole boy" reminds me that I owe him 50 cents, giggle (btw, I leave it in my golf bag, because even thou I'm not able to play right now, it will always be my first love, ok, the ole boy gets that vote, 2nd golf)

Signs at the squares that say "Chairs are available on a first come basis. Saved seats are not allowed"

There are at least 3 intersections that need to be resolved. Lights, bridges, tunnels, something before someone is killed or seriously injured. The street crossing at Baily Trail and Buena Vista coming north on Baily Trail. The crossing of Old CAmp near the Buena Vista traffic circle. The crossing of Morse just before the gate from 466. All three are very dangerous and get significantly backed up.

Costco.

I inquired once about baton twirling....they suggested, if you don't see what you want on the list of activities, you can start it yourself. just give them the information and she will place it in the monthly booklet, on line and on the tv station.

So I do believe that anything is possible.

Default Suggested improvements

No vehicular traffic around the squares after 5PM. Too drastic? Fallback position is carts only.

No dogs in the squares after 5PM. Perhaps exceptions for carried animals.

Boo-hiss to both of those! Besides, TV doesn't govern the squares.

Signs in the squares saying "No saving seats" huh?

No offense meant but - the people who do save seats are IGNORANT!

They know it isn't right or "allowed." They just don't care!

Remember - YOU CAN'T FIX STUPID!!!!

That's not ignorance; that's arrogance.

We currently have an additional full-time resident not on the deed but with an ID card and received an additional access code this year.

I would like a new, improved radio station. One that doesnt just play the same old tired computer generated music 24 hours a day. Im sure many Villagers are old enough to remember the likes of Frank Sinatra, Eddie Fisher, Frankie Laine, Doris Day, The Four Aces, The Four Lads, and many more. Many of us didnt go through life listening to nothing but top 40. There was early 50s rhythm and blues, 50s rock and roll, 60s folk, progressive rock and album rock. WVLG sounds good at first, but it wears thin pretty quick.

I really don't see greed in the Morse family. Are they wealthy - sure. But they seem to be continuing to work in the enterprise. A community like this could have been taken in the direction of exclusivity. While there are some fairly expensive homes in my neighborhood, there are also homes like ours that are middle class affordable. I don't feel, in the least, that I was overcharged for my new home. The developer has continued to provided new town squares, new rec centers, new executive golf courses, and new country clubs as the community has expanded. I don't foresee them abandoning such a long term commitment to The Villages.

No place is perfect for everyone. We've only been here for 3 months, so maybe I'm speaking prematurely, but we think it's a pretty fantastic hometown.
I've been here for three years and I agree 100%. And as a Patriots fan, it's not often that I agree with a Colts fan.
