I hope you are joking, because if that is true it would not be funny?

The article says "a developer", not THE DEVELOPER. The Morse family is not involved.

Is this what you’re referring to:

“Paul and Tim Rohan, whose brother, John, is the recreation director for The Villages, are two of the four applicants hoping to build the Sun Recreational Vehicle Development park. It would be located on about 90 acres owned by the Burke family behind their now-defunct restaurant, Burke’s BBQ, at 311 County Road 466. The other applicants are Carl Curly and Daniel Gibbs.” From the newspaper?

The one I'm talking about is taking over Burkes Tree Farm beside Publix at Colony Plaza.

Two brothers of a longtime prominent Villages official are hoping to bring a large-scale RV park to the outskirts of Fruitland Park – just outside the walls of Florida’s Friendliest Hometown – and the city commission isn’t happy about it.

Paul and Tim Rohan, whose brother, John, is the recreation director for The Villages, are two of the four applicants hoping to build the Sun Recreational Vehicle Development park. It would be located on about 90 acres owned by the Burke family behind their now-defunct restaurant, Burke’s BBQ, at 311 County Road 466.
The park, which would include 631 RV spaces – many of them apparently would be permanent, mobile-home-type models – would be located on a portion of the land where Burke’s Tree Farm now sits. It would be directly behind the backyards of homes in The Villages located along the Sumter County line.

There are electric utility lines that run behind houses there, at a good distance away.

They are also building one in Leesburg on Rt. 44 just east of The plaza at the Rohan Rec. Center. and enlarging the one on 44 west of 301 in Wildwood. Lots of people coming to town.

Oh, I am sure they will not be "offered", hinted at - wink wink, nod nod...

If they go ahead that should change who will buy in TV in the future probably effect the prices of homes too.

What city commission “isn’t happy about it?” Fruitland Park? If so, why was it approved or hasn’t it been? Very confusing.
