What are the changes being requested?

 

SUMTER

The developer has submitted 3 amendments (DRI2020-0001, DRI2020-0002, MISC2020-0006) to the Sumter County Commissioners, the main goal of which is to allow age-restricted apartments in The Villages. They also seek to extend the DRI expiration dates an extra 2 years; from December 31, 2023, to December 31, 2025. (The expiration date is the date at which the developer no longer has the legal right to add anything to the DRI.)

North of 466 = DRI2020-0002

DRI-2 seeks to put 286 MF units at HHCC and 3 sites at Buffalo Ridge  (CR466 & CR101).

South of 466 = DRI2020-0001 & MISC2020-0006

The developer is asking to build MF units at Lake Sumter Landing.  This change requires two amendments because it affects a town square which is governed by a Memorandum of Agreement as well as a DRI.  The Memorandum MISC2020-0006 (MISC-6) adds SF and MF as a permitted use in the town square.

TOWN OF LADY LAKE

Lady Lake = Ordinances 2020-08 & 2020-09  

The developer is also asking to build MF units in the Spanish Springs town square.  Just like Lake Sumter Landing, this change requires two ordinances because it affects a town center which is governed by a Memorandum of Agreement as well as a DRI.  The Memorandum (Ordinance 2020-09) simply adds MF as a permitted use in the town center.


RUMOR CONTROL (false rumors):

Can golf courses be converted into apartments?

The simple answer is NO.

Executive golf courses NORTH of 466 are NOT owned by the developer but by the ACC.  They cannot be touched.

The developer owns ALL championship courses in TV and all executive courses SOUTH of 466.  Golf course land is allocated in the Master Plan as golf course and cannot be changed without going through the amendment process (public notice, county hearings, etc) to reclassify the land.
