I continue to track all the latest news and updates as it relates to coronavirus in The Villages.

You can read this week’s coronavirus updates here.


Last week I mentioned the fact that The Villages remained the #1 selling community in the country.

This week we learned The Villages also leads the state in GDP growth:

GDP grew by 21.7% to $2.69 billion over the five-year period, ranking The Villages as Florida’s fastest-growing economy and America’s 14th fastest-growing economy.

Most people know that when they move to a community like The Villages, they need to get permission to make changes to the exterior of their homes.

Cutting down wetlands to enhance your view?

Not only would that not get approved, it would probably be illegal.

Unfortunately, that appears to be what some new residents have allegedly done.

Take a look at this flyover/drone video:


Some Kind of Heaven, the new documentary set/filmed in The Villages is now available on iTunes.

Last week I shared my thoughts after having seen a pre-release screener, and now you can check it out yourself from the comfort of your own home.


That’s all I have this week. Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you back next week!

  1. They need to charge the person with the swimming pool. Obviously they wanted a better view and should be arrested and charged thousands of dollars to plant large trees. Why should everyone have to pay for their stupidity?

  2. I no longer live in The Villages after fifteen years there as I moved to assisted living…but I still enjoy your bubble news Ryan…(it was a wonderful place to actively grow old in.)

  3. I strongly believe that those responsible for cutting down the trees in the wetlands should solely be responsible for any expenses incurred and no other residents should be expected to pay anything.
