we bought our home in Springdale in 2003. I was 48 and my husband was 52. No one had a problem with us being younger than 55.

Russ, I just assumed that a 55+ community translated into some kind of tax savings. So I guess the whole concept revolves around age, and an attempt to minimize the effect of kids. Doe that mean the law might also theoretically allow a 35+ community? George

I think the "tax savings" is that the impact fee is lower in a 55+, so not something the buyer will ever see except the initial new home price would have been lower than if a regular all age subdivision

I am not sure I agree. The impact fee applies to anyone building in the county. You support the schools in the county you buy in no matter your age. They are not going to give the 55 and above a break on impact fees.

The 55 and above advertisement to me was that I was buying into a 55 and above community - no kids and no young people. I realize that we will have young visitors. It is upsetting to read the weekly Sumter/Lake Police Blotter in the Daily Sun and find 30 - 40 year old Village residents (admittedly sons and daughters of Villages) getting picked up for drugs, burglaries and other things.

I just don't understand why any parent (no matter where they live) allows their loser children to live with them. Guess they haven't heard of "tough love". The parents deserve a better life than to have to put up with such crap.

It is my understanding that resales have no age restriction, I don't know that for a fact. i do know there are at least 2 family areas of the villages and i think the new one going in North of CVS is a family area.
my personal opinion is that in order to market commerical property they have to show an available workforce.

I think no one can live here under 19.

I haven't seen a response to your question. I am very curious to know exactly "how old" this person was that was forced to move. Or possibly, if there were some extenuating circumstances that a complaint would be filed.

This disturbs me because I am 52. My other half is 68. Now, I'm paranoid that if something would happen to him (Heaven forbid!!!), a neighbor might be able to force me out of the home he has provided for me. I'm sure I must be overreacting here.

My understanding is that these family areas have no privileges (golf, etc). They are developer areas for workers.

Default Re: Younger Residents ARE A GOOD THING !!

My wife and I purchased our home in TV when I was 49 and she was 48. WE did not buy it from a Village Realtor thus avoiding that 55+ age contract addendum that exists. There are people who act mature and responsible regardless of their age. There are also "adults" who can be immature and irrational after 55 years of age. What I find as rather amusing is the Chula Vista Pool. In order to swim there people must be at least 30 years of age. Well, I have 3 adult children ages 24, 26 & 28 suprisingly they know how to act in an adult pool but can't swim there. It's not like there going to get someone's blue-grey Beehive hair doo wet!! So here's a question: what about a Village Pool where you can't be over 60 years of age to swim there !! Pretty ridiculous huh? My kids can vote, drink alcohol, go to war, buy a home...... but they can't swim in the Chula Vista Pool. Noodle anybody?!!

This is not just a Chula Vista pool rule. All of the adult pools have a 30 and over restriction. Take or send your adult children to the community pools until they turn 30. Rules are rules.

This is supposed to be an adult (over 55) community. Just because you managed to go ourside of the rules to get in does not mean that you do not have to obey the rules once you are in.

Sometimes I get a little tired of people complaining about the rules. You should have done a more thorough search before buying here - or maybe the realtor said not to worry - no one cares. Well we do!!

In today's Daily Sun there were five entries in the police log and four were villagers "adult" children with drugs and burglary arrests. We do not need that here.

In a Utopian world, you would be right. How lucky you must be, to make it through your life this far, with no immediate family with addiction, or mental, or whatever the problems may be. How great it would be, if everyone in this world was as wonderful and lucky as you. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you look at it, we don't get to pick who our families are, and don't get to pick what faults and attributes they have, either.

caveman can stick up for himself but i don't think he was saying that it's great to have no issues. I think the point is that it's ok for a community to be just 55+ without the inherent problems that come when young adults are placed among the population.

Ya know folks...I think you're all being rather ridiculous on this "younger residents" thing. Age is relative and who cares how old someone is who wants to live here. I'm 61 but I ENJOY seeing younger people around. I always go to a "family pool" for the reason that there are younger people there. Why be "snobbish" on this issue? MOST younger people wouldn't WANT to live with a bunch of "old farts"...but for those who do, I say and thanks for helping to diversify and beautify The Villages. Since when are "younger people" threats? Also, in case you don't realize it, there are a lot of "older" people in here committing crimes on a daily basis. $300.00 was taken out of my husband's wallet from his golf bag. There were NO younger people in the vicinity.

Hooray for youth and hooray for the new "younger" residents. I welcome you and I applaud you!!

Seems tolerance and compassion are taking a back seat in the comments. If nobody that is a resident of TV that is 55+ has ever received a DUI, then maybe the statement has validity. I understand wanting to keep things safe, just seemed a bit harsh and callous.

Wow Cave someone needs to change their Depends. What you misconstrue ( def: to understand or interpret something incorrectly) is that I was not complaining. I am blogging my thoughts and ideas. I bet you never colored outside the lines in your coloring book did you? Did i say I didnt want to obey the rules? You're a little touchy about what I said in regards to vote to restrict folks over 60 from some pools. It's called BANTER CaveDude ( lighthearted teasing or amusing remarks that are exchanged between people.

First: And as such I did my "homework" or thorough search thats why I was able to BUY in The Villages at such an early age instead of waiting until I was your AGE. Don't be so hostile.

Second: You made the statement that I went outside of the rules to purchase my home. Sir, thats an incorrect statement. One only need to research Florida state law. I can provide you with the hyperlink, document, or come by and read it to you. You make the call. And you said "Sometimes I get a little tired of people complaining about the rules". CaveDweller, if someones complaining, regardless of the level or whatever is implied makes you tired then let me be the first to buy you some B complex vitamins and a case of beer. Relax, you're letting the little things beat you down. you should be living stress free and doing the nasty at least 3 times a week. but then again thats personal. Please accept my apologies.

Lastly, you made the statement, " In today's Daily Sun there were five entries in the police log and four were villagers "adult" children with drugs and burglary arrests. We do not need that here".

My response: Are you saying that "Villagers" 55+ and older do not do drugs. That can include, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, other.

You mention "Villagers Adult children" and their arrests. Are you saying that there are no residing, home owning "Villagers" with criminal histories? This can include any sort of felony, misdemeanor, other.

The Villages is not a fortress and until the walls are built with locks and all - then people will come and go. Crime is everywhere and just because its "The Villages" we are not immune. I wish you the best Cavedweller. Just chill ok. Life is short and ..... well you know.
