There are no HOA restrictions in The Villages as there is no HOA with any authority (thank goodness!) over any property or resident. The Community Standards department deals with issues that would traditionally be HOA compliance issues. For better or worse, depending on your position on the issue, all Community Standards enforcement issues are complain driven. There are no deed compliance police only neighborhood trolls and busybodies with too much time on their hand sticking their nose where they don't belong.
Thank you for a great answer.

Just to clarify, the link you provided includes the covenants for the Reagan, Leo, and Jackson Villas. Article IX, page 9, very clearly prohibits a homesite owner from parking "any vehicle" on the street. You can park in the driveway or in the garage, but not on the street. This restriction applies to all vehicles and is not limited to RVs and trucks.

That's pretty much the standard for the villa communities. The problem in the villa communities is that the streets are narrower than standard city streets, it's a relay pain if someone parks in the street.

Also can you park your cart in your lanai if lanai is big nuff?
Thanks
Let us put the other shoes on. If we want to be fair to all, then we have to let all park their cars on the street. How would it then look?

If no one else checks to make sure we comply with the restrictions, then yes it is our business to stick our noses where they belong...their neighborhoods. We may own our properties but we do not own the neighborhoods and the streets. So, no, I would not want to live next door to a neighbor who decides to paint the exterior of his house chartreuse green, shocking pink, black (yes I saw it somewhere, and it had shocking pink trim and shutters), or royal blue. If you don't care how your neighbors feel, move to the country where the rednecks live, and you will live happily forever after.

They are not home owner rules, by definition.
