At some point there will be commercial development on Miller (466A) as it heads to Fruitland Park. None will be GC accessible.

I personally think there's a lot of truth in your observation.

So really, what's the difference?n I don't think there will be that many golf carts in that new area because they likely don't have anyplace to go with them. If TV were smart, since they can come anyway by car, bus or bicycle and spend their money here they would consider making it GC accessible. Without "outsiders" spending money in the stores the squares would be a ghost town (except for the dog bakeries and dog clothes stores ).
I can think of one instance immediately. A Villager out for a bike ride was creamed and almost killed by a non-Villager who snuck in with his golfcart and came around a bend while in the middle of the cart path. The cyclist was severely injured. If one would like them on our paths, charge a healthy toll to help us maintain the cart paths.

I found the post you quoted very difficult to read. Orange background off color font. Anybody else?

The way it appeared on my laptop was a green background with orange colored font (this was the post he was replying to) with the normal tan color and black font for his own post. It wasn't hard to read. I don't think I saw the same color combination you did, Bogie. I'm on the original version, not the new version.

Gotcha, no one wants them but "insiders" probably "almost kill" as many people as "outsiders" driving or biking on the roads. Accidents will happen everywhere by anyone. Unfortunately we can't hide from it.

If I remember correctly, TV originally was going to buy the property, but Wildwood insisted on free and open golf cart access to Wildwood. TV would not agree and Wildwood would not approve the TV development plans so TV did not complete the purchase. Trailwinds is the result.

I don't think that was the issue. First of all, how many residents of Wildwood proper own a golf cart? And secondly there would have to be a crossing of CR 462, 466A west of Powell, and 301 for those who live on the west side of Wildwood. I think the reason was more political in nature

No one needs a pass to get through ANY gate. They are for traffic control only.

That's the nine on the corner of Buena Vista and 466A. A person who didn't care about trespassing could of cut across that golf course until the fence was installed. I watched the fence go up since I drive by there almost everyday going to MVP. If you don't believe that, look for a fence around Turtle Mound Executive across the street, there isn't one. No need to put one there.

For example, how this hurts Villages Leasing. TV gave exclusive leases to Subway at Colony, Pinellas and Traverse, meaning Jersey Mike's could not come in. They went into Trailwinds and last summer that location went from being new to #1 Jersey Mike's location in the USA out of 1600 stores. I asked Randy the manager on Friday if it was still busy or did Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendys slow you down. He said on Thursday they sold 800 subs.

Excellent points - thanks.

I have issues with Trailwinds Jersey Mike's - will make separate post in appropriate category....

They are opened 11 hours so that would be at minimum 73 subs continuously every hour they were opened! Even with 2 people continuously making them all day and doing nothing else like taking cash or going to the bathroom or having lunch that would be 36.5 subs per person every hour or almost 2 subs every MINUTE !!!! Maybe he meant 80 ?

However I do agree with you on the rest of your post.
If memory serves - I believe Mr. Helpful was having lunch at Mike's on the 800 Thursday......
