Officials should ask the residents of CDD 8 about what they think of anonymous complaints

I have lived in The Villages for 16 years and have seen how anonymous complaints have repeatedly hurt my friends and neighbors, needlessly.

I believe many times the people complaining do not even live in The Villages full-time or in the district they are complaining about.

At times It is “revenge” to hurt people they don’t like or feel have done something they didn’t like or believe a different way.

Personally, I watched my neighbors pay $8,000 to remove Landscaping that was beautiful and my entire neighborhood signed a petition for it to stay to no avail. All caused by another anonymous  complainer who definitely did not live in this neighborhood.

Regardless of the little white cross lawsuit, Community Development District 8 needs to do away with anonymous complaints. What a foolish thing, tarnishing The Villages’ wonderful  reputation.

It is becoming well-known who these individuals are representing Community Development District 8 specifically and how they are voting.

Here’s a suggestion….do an anonymous survey to see in black and white how residents of Community Development  District 8 feel about this matter and vote accordingly.

Sandy Oberg is a resident of the Village of St. Charles.

I enjoy riding my bicycle on multi-modal paths in The Villages

Pedestrians are not always treated with respect on multi-modal paths

In a Letter to the Editor, a Village of Osceola Hills at Soaring Eagle resident says that pedestrians are not always treated with respect on the multi-modal paths.

The rule is that we are supposed to share the paths

A Village of Linden offers some clarification about the intent for the use of the multi-modal paths in The Villages.

Multi-functional paths can accommodate all

A Village of Santo Domingo reader takes issue with a Villager who said that walkers and bicyclists need to get out of the way of golf carts on the multi-modal paths.
