More aesthetic than anything...makes them look pretty and new with the new stripes.

The Bridgeport at Lake Miona Rec center was done a couple of weeks ago. Definitely was not much more than sealing.....not re-paving.
The parking lots in question are being repaved. Just like Nucky said.

Milling the Parking lot and then Repaving. Doing the Job in the absolutely totally proper manner. This is after all where the Entire Dream Started. They were removing the old asphalt all the way up to the islands in the Parking Lots, a great job not any corners cut at all that I saw.

Squares are not owned by the developer. Owned by the CDDs.

Village Center CDD
Sumter Landing CDD or
Brownwood CDD

As for the street repair..... the person that is asking lives there and should know who owns them. Probably the Town of Lady Lake or Lake County. Also I won't think they would repave til they are finished with what ever construction is planed. (Post Office area)

I am referring to the 100 yards or so on each side of the O'Dell Circle near Mallory CC. It's an area that has been poorly patched at least 3 times in the 2 1/2 years I have been here. They ended just north of that between Stillwater and O'Dell by Mallory. Most of what they DID pave was already in excellent condition. We travel it 3-4 times a day. As for the bridge, I guess they will get to that when they get to that.

There is also another patch on Morse Blvd. near the RAB at Odell Circle South. Someone already posted that the paving is supposed to be completed in November. Hoping this is true as this section of roadway I just mentioned is really a mess of patches.

Found this on the black-site-news dot com. Hope it's wrong:

Resurfacing projects will begin soon on two heavily traveled sections of Morse and Buena Vista boulevards.
The Morse project will cover a distance of about 0.8 miles from County Road 466 to about 1,000 feet south of Stillwater Trail, including roundabouts and the Morse Boulevard Bridge.
On Buena Vista, resurfacing will be done on 1.25 miles of the road from 300 feet south of Lake Miona Drive to County Road 466A, including roundabouts.
Sumter County commissioners Tuesday approved contracts with D.A.B. Constructors, the lowest bidder on both projects, to complete the work. Three companies bid on the Buena Vista project and four on the Morse project.
D.A.B.’s bids were $1.05 million for Buena Vista and $848,889 for Morse.
If it's true, $2million bucks and they don't even fix the potholes!

My wife and I think the road surfaces in TV are fine.
Where I live in UK, out in the beautififull Cotswold boonies, our local council does not reckon a hole qualifies as a pothole until it is at least six inches deep.
I am thinking of trading my car in for some sort of tracked vehicle!

From the Sumter County website:
The two resurfacing projects were each split into two parts. On Sept. 17, the remaining parts were put out for bid. The deadline to submit bids is Oct. 18. The Selection Committee will meet on Oct. 22 to review the bids. The Selection Committee's recommendation will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners meeting on Nov. 12.

1. Morse Boulevard Phase 2 from 1,000 Feet South of Stillwater Trail to SR 44.

2. Buena Vista Boulevard Phase 2 Rehabilitation from 300 Feet South of Lake Miona To North of C-44A Roundabout.
