To the Editor:
I had an incident involving an Architectural Review Committee board member impose her authority on a group email I sent to invite my friends to a class I was conducting for The Enrichment Academy. I was having a representative from the University of Florida’s, “Florida-Friendly Landscaping” outreach program come to my class to talk about the program that helps Villagers’ with landscaping ideas appropriate for Florida’s ecology.
The first and only reply I received was from the ARC member warning my friends to first get a permit before doing anything. She told me she was an ex-police officer and believed in being pro-active. That’s really stretching one’s nose into other peoples’ business where it doesn’t belong.
