300....THREE HUNDRED...300.....more homes......600....six hundred more people!!!!

How about buying and building here in 2004....population 35,000....nothing South of 466 on either Buena Vista or Morse.

Now.....105,000.....

And during that time TV has only gotten better and better.

Relax and continue enjoying the lifestyle you have had here all along.....300 homes or 600 people (if they stay year around) is not gonna steal anybody's peace and quiet.

I understand and even sympathize with your concerns. But that is no where near the congestion and crowding we live with every day in the St Charles/St James area and south of that. The parking lot at Colony is crowded at Publix just about 24/7. The 300 houses and golf carts aren't going to affect your area nearly that much.

The developer owns the land, the land is vacant and he wants to develop it. If the county says OK then people may not like it but that's what he's going to do period. The super market is crowded which one isn't will another chain come in maybe. Rumor has it another Publix is going down on Rt.44 to help with the crowding on the south side. If you think buildout is done, I sure don't think so. There's to much land around and IF the demand continues so will the building. We may not all like it but I'll bet VERY few will leave because of it.

Your mother didn't have any dumb kids and I am pretty sure you are the smartest of the bunch.

I so like the common sense posts that filter in every once in awhile.

Like YOURS above. So glad you are part of this forum Skip.

The Winn Dixie near you is certainly not crowed and the Publix near you, off Powell is empty. An easy drive from Colony.

Just wondering if you live in the area in question? Many of us do and yes with Buena Vista as the one main though street and only one Publix which is crowded now if they are full time yes it will affect us. I understand progress. That said this is a long established area and when "planned" was not "planned" for 300 more homes and the potential for 500-600 more people. But this of course is just the opinion of someone who has lived in that area for going on 13 years now.

I sympathize with your concerns. But if a plan is looked at as rigid with no possibility of change, then it is being looked at unrealistically. Sure, infrastructure and other issues must be addressed, but plans change.

This should be a wake-up call for every resident of all parts of The Villages to be aware that there could be additional building in your neighborhood. Look around and see if there are any open spaces near you.

The Villages is negotiating to purchase 200 acres or more north of County Road 466A and east of County Road 462 to develop The Villages of Wildwood.

The Villages of Wildwood would consist of neighborhoods of single-family home similar to the recent Villages expansion into Fruitland Park, according Wildwood city officials, who said project details such as the number of lots are not yet available.
