POA Mission Statement
The Property Owners' Association of The Villages is an independent organization devoted to the home ownership experience in The Villages.
The Vision/Objective of the POA is to make The Villages an even better place in which to live, where Residents' Rights are respected, and local government is responsive to the needs and interests of residents.
Specific POA attention is focused on housing, community, neighborhood, and government issues. Special emphasis is directed at Community Development Districts (CDDs) and the Florida Chapter 190 law that regulates CDD operations in The Villages.
The POA serves residents of The Villages through programs of education, research, analysis, representation, advocacy, and legislative action.
The POA also functions as a "watchdog" organization overseeing the actions of the Developer and our local governments.
The POA has no ties or obligations to the Developer of The Villages that might compromise the POA position or its advocacy of Residents' Rights.
The POA, founded in 1975, is the original homeowners' association in The Villages. Membership is open to all Villages residents.
