They will be here all day on Saturday the 28th, they will be off on Sunday, the 29th, and Monday, the 30th, and will be back in the park on Tuesday, May 31st. There will still be yard waste pickup on Friday, June 3rd but that is all they will be here for. Make sure you pass this info along to your neighbors! We want the Villages to look nice for all of our visitors so we had to adjust the mowing schedule accordingly.

New Update on "Old 8000 Area Purchase".
On April 11th, the Board of Directors sent a letter to the township offering $50,000 for the land that was for sale for $70,100. We were met with a counter offer on April 22, 2015 by Ann Richards of $60,000. The Village Board felt that $50,000 was a fair and reasonable offer and decided to have the township board approve or deny our $50,000 offer. At the township board meeting on April 25, 2016, the township voted unanimously to accept our $50,000 offer. We are waiting for a purchase agreement from them to finalize the deal. Once we finalize everything with the purchase, we will send a letter out letting you know the amount of the assessment for each homeowner. We will keep you posted!!



We wanted to post an update on the potential purchase of the "Old 8000 Area". The following is what was printed in our February/March edition of our newsletter:


As some of you may have heard by now, the Township has decided to sell the property located directly south of the clubhouse, commonly referred to as the “Old 8000 Area”. The initial asking price for the property is $70,100.00 for approximately 62 acres of land. Our concern is that if it were to be sold on the open market, it could be developed into something that could be detrimental to the Villages and negatively affect our property values. The Villages would have very little say into any development and it would NOT be a part of the Homeowners Association. Therefore, we are in the beginning stages of discussions with the Township regarding the possible purchase of this property. If this were to happen, the worst case scenario is that it would result in a special ONE TIME assessment of $100.00 OR LESS per home owner depending on the final purchase price of the property. The Township has agreed to give us right of first refusal prior to offering the property on the open market. However, they won’t wait forever for our decision. The Board of Directors is very conscientious as to how we spend the homeowners’ money. We feel that this is something that will affect us all and value your opinions and thoughts. In the meantime, the office staff or any Board member can address any questions or concerns you might have.

~Randy Moore, President

We also wanted to let you know that as of today, February 18, 2016, we have not made any decisions on whether or not to purchase the property yet. We are still in the process of doing our due diligence and research to make sure this is a smart purchase to make for our residents and community. Please feel free to contact the office or a board member for any updates. We will try to keep this site updated as much as we can as well as our Facebook page. Stay Tuned!
