Dead Fronds on Palm Trees
There are numerous palms on the golf courses, lakes, recreation centers and common areas in The Villages®. The Villages® palm tree maintenance policy is based on current research. Some species of palms are susceptible to sporadic cold temperatures. Palms can be adequately protected by leaving the brown leaves attached which serves the purpose of providing some insulation to the growing bud. The University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service/Department of Ornamental Horticulture believes it is in the best interest of the tree to leave it alone and allow the fronds to provide this natural protective function. Some trimming is done for safety issues.
The Villages® is designed to be a pet friendly community. However, only domestic pets are permitted and they should not make any unreasonable amount of noise or create a nuisance. Pets must be controlled by a leash when not in the confines of the home. As a courtesy, owners should pick up after their pets and respect neighboring property owners. This same courtesy would apply to common areas, multi-modal paths, and the Town Squares. All city and county pet ordinances shall be adhered to.
Telephone Book Disposal
Residents of unincorporated Lake County are serviced by Waste Management. Each homeowner is issued a recycling container in which the old telephone may be placed for pick up. At the present time all other residents should dispose of the telephone books with their regular recycling pick up. Residents are reminded not to deposit the old directories at the postal stations. The Lions’ Club recycling containers at the neighborhood postal stations are for aluminum cans only. For more information about recycling, please visit the Community Development Districts website.
