In recent weeks we’ve covered the future expansion plans for The Villages, new roads coming to The Villages, as well as the expansion of several public safety departments to handle all the additional people and issues that will come from that.
One thing we haven’t covered is how Community Watch will keep step with all of the growth.
According to an article in The Villages Daily Sun, “since development began in the Villages of Fenney, DeSoto and McClure, Community Watch has added six more drivers and two more vehicles to cover that zone.”
The article also mention that Community Watch drove 1.13 MILLION miles last year. Holy cow! [The Villages Daily Sun]
