Hope they add amenities like golf and a square in the area
to accommodate the 300 homes

The fact is...those are statements of your opinion, nothing more.

And to call your post "not negative"? Yeah right.
Hi Polar Bear: We all approach problems/situations in a different manner. I've explained to folks before that I grew up with a father that had a John Wayne mentality meaning a man had to man up. As a kid I once said to him in response to a situation "that ain't fair" He laughed and said no kidding. Actually he used two other words (No ----) but I avoid swearing just not in my DNA that's my mother's influence.

So the issue at hand here is "overcrowding" "Overcrowding carries with it a natural negative connotation, except I am sure in this case The villages Lake-Sumter, Inc., local businesses etc. won't think so nor will politicians because he brings in more income and tax money.

However to ordinary folks like us it has an adverse effect meaning longer lines, more wait times, being pushed off the "free for life"golf courses. etc. To wit ask someone what they felt when their tee time reservation came back "cannot accommodate " This of course makes my opinion not opinion but fact. If I wanted to live in New York City I would have moved there.

My John Wayne mentality upbringing means I face these issues as they are presented and deal with them without the need to sugar coat anything.
Either accepts reality and deal with it or ignores it and lets it work against him/her.

Too often on this forum I read where a poster opines that a member is being too negative when in reality the subject manner is negativity and not the writer .

On the other hand I do like The Villages and in my little corner the surrounding neighbors exhibit all that is good about living here. I thoroughly enjoy their company and find them to be truly caring human beings and frankly the nicest people I have ever met along my travels over the years.

I truly hope I haven't offended you or other posters because my intent was only to express my reality.


Personal Best Regards:

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.
Gracie this underlined statement in your comment is incorrect. The law suit had nothing to do with giving control of running 1 - 4 to the residents. I live within this area and we have exceptional elected officials who listen to their residents wishes.

I've said this before IF you think they're done forget about it. Key West is a LONG ways away. Look at all the vacant property around TV. If the price is right they'll buy and when you look at some of the lot premiums they pay for the new land no problem. If you build it they will come. Is it crowded sure, but there's an awful lot here and in the surrounding areas.

Excellent post Rubicon. I can't say how I respect your posts and how I value them. Lately they felt a little different and I hoped you were still happy here.

Your fan,

Gracie

BTW, I am in the group who wants stripes on the cart paths..... But a topic for another thread
We live south of 466A - coming up on our 3rd year in May. It is exciting and wonderful to live here in TV. The developer has done a wicked good job and I see no signs of that changing.

Supply (of homes) will only increase, 10-15 yrs from now 50% of the ppl who live here now will not be here. I'm not sure this community will meet the needs of those retiring during that timeframe.

What is the deal with the build out, what is it and why is that important, would someone explain pls.

No big deal. The Villages a few times have speculated on an approximate build out time (when all the Villages will be done). Then all of a sudden there is some more property & more homes going in. Some people get fixated with the word buildout. The developers will continue to develop as long as they can find places to develop. LOL
