INFORMATIVE VHA NORTH MEETING “Community Standards – The Can Do and Can’t Do’s in The Villages” was the topic of discussion at the VHA North Area meeting on Thursday, Oct. 20 at the Savannah Center. VHA North Area Vice President Joan Testa greeted the large crowd, introduced VHA Regional Directors and Villages Representatives and encouraged attendees to become acquainted with them.  She explained that these VHA directors and representatives are always available to answer questions and assist the residents in their area. Joan introduced Diane Tucker, Administrative Operations Manager of Community Development Districts.  Diane welcomed everyone and then introduced Candy Dennis, Community Standards Manager, who presented the program explaining deed restrictions and rules that keep The Villages a beautiful community.  She also talked about how rules vary among the different CDDs and explained how to obtain copies of each set of deed restrictions and rules. A lively question and answer session followed the presentation.  Several of the residents were new to The Villages and were eager to learn more about their neighborhoods and what changes they could make to their homes and landscaping. After the meeting, residents and VHA members continued discussing what they had learned as they became acquainted.  They also expressed their appreciation for the District presenting these informative programs and providing needed information.
