Developer ‘aware’ of residents’ frustrations over parking at Fenney Putt & Play

The Developer of The Villages is “aware” of residents’ frustrations over lack of parking at Fenney Putt & Play.

Community Development District 10 Chairman Don Wiley broached the topic Monday morning at a meeting of the Project Wide Advisory Committee.

“Is there any consideration to changes at Putt & Play?” Wiley asked.

PWAC, which oversees amenities south of County Road 466 and north of State Road 44, has no authority over Fenney Putt & Play. But in all likelihood, that will change one day.

District Manager Richard Baier said the Developer is “aware” of the parking situation and is taking a wait-and-see approach as Wildwood considers an ordinance to address homeowners’ concerns. The Wildwood Commission that same morning heard a first-reading of the proposed parking ordinance.

In an earlier email exchange with a resident of the Village of Fenney, Villages Vice President for Community Relations Gary Lester mentioned Wildwood’s work on a parking ordinance, as well a plan to dispatch Community Watch drivers to the area. He said the Community Watch personnel could encourage drivers to park at the nearby Sugar Cane and Blue Heron recreation centers. He also suggested stories in The Villages Daily Sun could help guide residents to the proper place to park.
