Post Villages Expansion in Marion County

According to the on-line news, The Villages is annexing 64 acres in Marion County just south of 42 and will build 300 new homes there. This was announced by Gary Moyer at a District 4 meeting last night.

The new area will be golf cart accessible and have their own rec centers and pools. Additional shopping is planned for that area. Read all about it in a recent article.

Well, so much for the well worn "they'll never build again in Marion County" declaration.

And we had our own little piece of paradise here in the North - no awful traffic, Publix not crazy crowded, quiet, etc. I will enjoy some additional restaurants and/or shopping, though.

I agree!
Yes we did, sigh....... maybe it won't be bad, time till tell. I'm fine with driving to other restaurants and shopping, Truly hope we don't end up with the congestion they have north of 466.

And NO talk of building another executive course. Crowding will be worse than on Lopez.

Maybe they have plans to petition Sumter for annexation.

How does The Villages annex? It is not a city, town. They must be buying.

The article says The Villages already owned the land. That makes it sound like they had just not previously intended to build on it and have now changed their minds (maybe because they couldn't sell it (just speculation on my part)).

They wouldn't be building more if there weren't buyers chompin' at the bit to buy new homes. Priced in the middle range, they'll all sell in a month.
