General Information

Villa Paving Information - Updated 4/20/2021

Ranger Construction Company will begin milling and overlaying the roads in the following villas-
District 3 –
• Fernandina Villas:  April 29, 2021 through May 5, 2021
• Amelia Villas:  May 1, 2021 through May 7, 2021
District 4 –
• Unit 66 Winterthur Loop on April 15, 2021 ** delayed due to inclement weather
• Belle Meade Circle in Piedmont ** delayed due to inclement weather
Dates may be adjusted due to unforeseen circumstances, including weather.

Everything possible will be done to minimize your inconvenience. For the SAFETY of our crews and all residents, we ask that you reschedule any work or deliveries to your Villa until the paving is complete as they may be denied access. Only residents and emergency vehicles will have immediate access during the construction.

PLEASE DO NOT run your irrigation, wash your vehicle or empty your pool during the week, as it will increase the work time.

ALL vehicles and trailers must be parked OFF of the roads and the overflow parking areas must be empty, as to not impede the work.

Please be advised that newly paved roadways will take approximately one hour to cure and should not be driven on while hot! Driving before this time could result in tracking asphalt onto your driveway and damaging the new roadway.

If you must travel through the construction, PLEASE drive slowly and watch for and listen to directions provided by the contract workers.
Please be aware that in some cases, residents have installed decorative curbing, pavers, landscape and other features within the District owned property (road right-of-way area) or decorative curbing over the top of the asphalt and extending out beyond the right of way into the actual road. 

While our contractor is diligent in performing the Mill and Overlay operation and will take all precautions to protect your property, these improvements which are in the road right-of-way areas or encroaching into the street are subject to damage or destruction without compensation to the resident.

Residents may wish to remove items from the road right-of-way areas in advance of Mill and Overlay to mitigate the potential for damage.  The District will not make repairs, restoration or restitution for items within the road right-of-way that are inadvertently damaged during construction.

Our goal is to give you a new road that will last a maximum life with the LEAST amount of inconvenience. Your cooperation is GREATLY APPRECIATED. If you have any questions during the work there will be someone on site to help. For additional information, please contact District Property Management at 352-753-4022.

Amenity Fee Adjustment

Per your individual Declaration of Restrictions, amenity fees are subject to an adjustment based on the fluctuation of the National Consumer Price Index for all Urban Consumers. The timing of this adjustment can vary based on the Declaration of Restrictions in your unit. For information specific to your home, please refer to your Declaration of Restrictions. For assistance in obtaining them, please contact Community Standards at (352) 751-3912.
Each month, the percentage of adjustment will be provided in What’s Happening for your reference. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Finance Customer Service at (352) 750-0000.
The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers changed by 1.4% from January 2020 to January 2021. This change will be used to adjust Amenity Fees for properties with original land sale dates in the month of March.


Information Provided by Executive Golf

The United States Golf Association recently implemented a new rule under Rule 13.2a (2): 

•There is no longer a penalty if a ball played from the putting green hits a flagstick left in the hole. 

•Players are not required to putt with the flagstick in the hole; rather, they continue to have the choice to have it removed (which includes having someone attend the flagstick and remove it after the ball is played).

Information obtained from www.usga.org

Removing the flagstick to help in retrieving a golf ball from the cup is still considered proper etiquette and requires that we complete the task by hand. Using the flagstick to pinch and pull up the golf ball from the cup is frowned upon and not considered good etiquette standards.

The challenge for Executive Golf Courses in The Villages is that many residents use assistance or ball removal devices for the convenience of not bending as far to remove golf balls from cups. When ball retrieval devices are inserted with flagsticks still in place (Photo 2) the damage to the delicate edges of cups occur.  It also causes degradation of the putting surface for the players that follow.  

We are asking all residents that use these devices to simply pull the flag stick out gently (Photo 1) and remove the golf ball with your device. This will ensure the integrity of the cup edges and allow players to enjoy the same crisp quality of the cups as the players before them. 

We appreciate your cooperation!



Pet Owners

Please be considerate of others and all properties.  Dog owners are responsible for picking up after their pets.  Please take all waste home for disposal.  Do not use storm drains, postal or recreation facilities for disposing of solid waste or plastic bags.  In addition, please follow all county ordinances including all dogs are required to be on a leash.
