Keep the Venice FL mailing address for West Villages

This petition had 1,163 supporters

Dear City of North Port Commissioners,

   We, the residents of West Villages, respectfully request that you stop your action to impose a North Port mailing address for our residences in the West Villages. As underlined in the free press, the previous attempts by the City were not successful, and we are determined to defend our rights with all the means provided under the laws of the United States of America.
    As the government of the people for the people, your duty is to consider our unwavering voice in this matter.
    When we bought our houses in the West Villages, one main consideration was the Venice mailing address and we paid for it, as the real estate market dictated the sale price; you should not be offended by that, as we contribute substantially to the city tax base. We, the homeowners/taxpayers/voters, are saddled with significant financial burden for all the infrastructure in the West Villages, and we have the right to say what we want to happen in this case.
     The West Villages District is no longer completely contained in the City of North Port, as the southernmost part is in the unincorporated Sarasota County, and that is another factor to change your position and approach.
    There are other local examples where such situation as our West Villages mailing address is the norm (see North Venice - Nokomis), and we hope that you will utilize your time, energy and resources for more important issues for the city.
    We are hopeful that you will listen and do not drag the city and us through an undesirable confrontational process.


Your voters and taxpayers in the West Villages
