This Is our Village

Sunday, May 29, 2011


Hi all,
There is a comment elswhere in the BLOG regarding CV population when the Seasonal Residents are gone. Following are figures from the Census, the Census only records those who are permanent residents here in CV Florida; Seasonal Residents are recorded in their State and City of residence remote from Florida.

There is no doubt that over 50% of unit owners are indeed in residence after Seasonal Residents are gone.

Having said that, I personally believe that our seasonal Residents are disenfranchised as regards serving in volunteer and elected positions in the Village; especially in the age of technology which would allow participation in various meetings by electronic means.

  1. There are 3 people in my building alone that claim residence here. But, actually rent four 4 to 6 months elsewhere. Which means they are not here physically? As far as electronic communications, GREAT idea!

  2. Dave,
    Thank you for your study and presentation of statistics. It enforces my contention that inclusion of winter residents is becoming necessary in CV to see that is it run properly and represents a majority of the active and interested owners.
