Next time you buy a house, make sure you check with the developer to guarantee your house is the last one he builds.

It concerns me that some elected officials (District 4 managers) were surprised by Village officials on this village expansion as reported in the other paper. The on line paper said and I quote: “ Supervisor Paul Kelly said he would have preferred that supervisors would have had more information about The Villages’ proposal ahead of the meeting.
District Manager Janet Tutt said the last-minute request from The Villages of Lake Sumter Inc. was accommodated “out of respect” for The Villages.”

That same situation was prevalent in my Ohio home city council meetings for several years. The current mayor and his crew are now doing a much better job of providing information in a timely manner to council before issues are addressed. This is how it should be done.

I would hope that The Village staff gives District managers the same courtesy. What’s the rush?

I cannot tell for sure, I get the impression that most posters are not in favor of this expansion.

I want to keep the Developers involved in running this place as long as we can. It seems the law suit giving control to homeowners north of 466 established an atmosphere and dealings not nearly as good a way as the way things are run south of 466. They are fussing and fighting over whether we need a line in the middle of the cart paths. I drove a long way today on unlined cart paths. I don't like the nit picking and dumb additions and foolish expenditures that comes from people running communities who have had no previous history doing it.

I am a big fan of how the developers run things.

Good point Gracie. Let's all future posters on this topic state if we are north or south of 466. Me, I am north, will not be much affected either way by this expansion. If we get a couple of good additional resturants out of the expansion, then I am all for it.


BTW, I am in the group who wants stripes on the cart paths..... But a topic for another thread

I agree. That's what is so awesome. We all have choices. I love it here. The more the merrier. I wouldn't live anywhere else. I understand it's not everybody's cup of tea and that's okay. There are lots of other places to go. I think they are are doing a wonderful job here. We moved here in 2000. We always knew that it was going to be big and I love it.
I love it when you say developer. That's it exactly what they are and what they do. And they do it well.

no such thing as a build out date, as long as there is vacant land adjoining the villages and the demand for homes , it will never end.

I must disagree with you on this point. Elected officials are to have a say in how things should now run in the Villages. Florida statutes set up this type of elected government structure.


Now, the IRS does agree with you in that they believe the developers still run things.

Someone else can discuss this with you. We are still a CDD and elected officials do not run things where I live. AND I LIKE IT BETTER than how Urbana, Ohio is run.

Sorry, but if you live in a residential CDD in Florida per Wikipedia
Control
“The CDD is controlled by a Board of Supervisors (BoS), five individuals elected by the landowners of the district. The board then elects one supervisor as chair, names a secretary and a treasurer who need not be board members, and hires a district manager, who will be responsible for daily operations of the CDD.[1] After six years, the power must begin a transition from the landowners to the residents.[2]”
Now, where do you live?

This family of developers is going to build either resident or commercial on every stinking inch of property they can get their hands on and the heck with the effect it has on people living in the area.

Now that's not negative that's just plain reality

The Developer develops and the District manages. The CDD form of government throughout Florida is set by state statute and is not limited to TV.

This Monday, I am taking my brother and a good friend to a Rotary meeting to present a positive and informative program about the Villages. All three of us now own new homes south of Hillsborough Trail and are excited about being able to spend more time here without renting. We will talk about all of the changes that have taken place over the years to create what a beautiful place it is today.

Everyone comes from different places and yet must collaborate to insure that what changes take place in the future will make the Villages even more attractive. We can debate and still be friends I hope.
