Villager told sign out of compliance after complaining about dogs doing their business on her lawn

A Villager was told a sign was out of compliance after complaining about dogs doing their business on her lawn.

The long-debated topic of dogs in Florida’s Friendliest Hometown was raised Monday at a Project Wide Advisory Committee by the chairman, Peter Moeller.

He was concerned about residents whose yards are located along sidewalks and end up being the yards where dogs tend to relieve themselves. It’s turned out to be frustrating for those homeowners, he said.

That’s when Moeller told the story of the resident and the sign.

“This particular resident put signs up. They were told they can’t put signs on their property,” Moeller said.

The Villages has no power over the situation, except when it comes to the signs. Even then, the deed compliance system is complaint-driven, so if no one complains, the signs can remain.

Villager Marilyn Iskra called the signs “tacky.” However, she said she is concerned because she has “read so many comments about people complaining about dogs urinating on their grass.”

Another problem with the signs? “It just moves it to another yard,” a PWAC member observed.
