There is no Marion Oaks deed restriction. They set in the office and take care of personal business and let the community take care of itself.

We have lived in Marion Oaks for several years now and have recently joined the Civic Association. My husband now volunteers at Deed Restriction. I cannot say what has previously occurred in the office, but I do know that at the present time, they are busy. After a complaint is registered, either by mail or by phone, an inspector has to check it out and if there is a violation, a notice is given to the resident with ample time to fix it. The inspector must go back after that time and verify it has been fixed and if it hasn't, there is a formal letter sent to the owner, if not fixed after that, then it is turned over to county code enforcement. Normally it only takes a notice to the resident to comply but when renters are in the home, it can be a lengthy process. Marion Oaks has a LOT of homes (and a LOT of renters) to check and recheck-this is time consuming and the office is volunteer. If people want to complain about the lack of enforcement, why not join the forces and contribute to the effort. They can always use more help.

I've lived in MO for over 25 years. It was actually more cleaner and the folks respected each other in those days. Everyone took pride in their homes and their values. It's a pig sty today and getting worse. The folks are rude and nasty and hunt in packs. Deed Restrictions has some shady characters. I know, I live near are real winner. It lives around people who have many Deed violations but will not deal with reporting them. Birds of a feather, I guess stick together. We could do much better if they would practice what they preach. The effects of MODR are not visible, non-existant. Especially with the peach in the middle.

One's home should reflect one's authority as a member of M O Deed restriction. If you can not maintain your own home or neighborhood, you are a poor representative of the community and as a chair person of Deed Restrictions. The Civic Association should re-evaluate their members. We need honest people with decent morals. Cowards and people with many faces can been seen with the naked eye these days. You fool no one. But make a fool of yourself.

I own a home in Marion Oaks, and i wish i had done my research before i bought my house there.In my neighborhood we have owners grilling in the front yard stuff that should be in the back yard now in front of the property.There are 2bd and 1bdr and 3bdr house where i live at and i feel like im not living in the USA. Bottom line is Marion Oaks is the Ghetto/Drugs place.

If you saw where Deed Restrictions personal lived, you would know that it is BULL.
Every violation possible on 35th Circle is plainly irrelevant. People are not stupid, but Marion Oaks Deed Restrictions is a brain washing machine. God help anyone who lives in the land of The Marion Oak Witches.

Be patient. Our church studied the census and demographics in marion oaks last year, and it shows a number of interesting trends. First, the average age and income are rising sharply, and secondly the racial mix is very much equal between latinos and anglos, with anglos beginning to edge out Latinos slightly. the good news is that for both groups, the incomes and ages are getting higher. Rents are also rising. Then consider that with Oak Run and Summerglen basically full, we are seeing more retirees buying in Marion Oaks. With retirees flooding into central Florida, we can expect to see some good growth. Property values are already rising. The ONLY viable property near I-75 and the Villages right now is Marion Oaks. I predict the next step will be alot of "flipping" of the older houses which will push out renters and draw more owners.

I moved to Marion Oaks in 1987, and have been a Volunteer fireman for almost three years, two years as Lieutenant, and have been on over a thousand calls, including dozens of fires, and hundreds of vehicle collisions. I've done more for the community in one pinky than 99.99% of the rest of the people living here. I read somewhere people in the MOCA think they're worth $70,000.00. I'm an Engineer and I don't make that much in a year contract! Send your retired rear end back to where you came from; you're not better because you were over paid doing some job that doesn't require an education. It seems the newer people moving in in the last ten or so years, are really disrespectful self-serving narcissists.

And by the way, your MOCA site has over 50 misspellings.

"In my neighborhood we have owners grilling in the front yard stuff that should be in the back yard now in front of the property."

Black Girl, do you want to look out your front door and see a deserted neighborhood? The funny thing is, in my experience, it seems people who initiate complaints such as yours are likely hiding their own disgusting lazy lifestyle.

I've had people put in complaints to me, yet the kind of person I am is the kind of person who used a spare globe I had, and put it on a neighbors light post, where their globe apparently broke. On the other hand, that neighbor, who is grilling on their front yard, may cook you a burger at a time you didn't have time to cook for yourself.

What have you done for the neighborhood besides complain?

Setting it straight, are you retired from up North? I ask, because it seems retirees from up North are looking for a perfect world, and have forgotten where they've came from. It's great your hubby's job paid 50 dollars an hour as a garbage man, sold your modest house for a million dollars, and were able to buy one similar for fraction of the cost; keep in mind, many of your neighbors are working harder at a fraction of that money...and aren't retired.
