II- COMMUNITY ISSUES
C. Current Years (2005-2015)
Several live oak trees were illegally cut down with no one taking responsibility. The POA offered a solution: all the residents in that neighborhood would have to share the cost of replacing 12 trees at a cost of approximately $50,000 unless someone (preferable the perpetrators) come forward (announced or unannounced) to pay for the replacement. Someone did come forward anonymously and the case was closed.
Suddenly, a golf cart trail on Developer's owned property between Paradise Drive and The Villages Health System East Campus was blocked by a wall cutting off this path and leaving some residents on the wrong side with no way to get past. After much discussion, the wall was removed.
