Village Walk in Naples is getting a facelift, at least the front entrance is and probably some of the other structures. Village walk is one of Naples older communities, there are homes here from 1995. Set around its own mini town center, Village Walk is great if you like to stay close to home, with its own small gas station, post office, ice cream parlor and even a beauty parlor, it's easy to never leave.
The entrance way is in the middle of getting a facelift, often work like this is carried out over the summer months to cause minimum disruption to winter residents, winter is the busiest time of year in Naples, so often communities such as Village Walk take their time preparing, then work to improve the community in the heat of the summer. This is not easy for the workers who sometimes have to endure considerable heat, but with planning and starting early in the morning, they are able to avoid the worst the searing mid-day sun.
Thunderstorms are also a problem which can cause major headaches for builders in southwest Florida, the predictable summer storms usually come around 3 - 4 pm, although they are not predictable as they once were, when they do come, however, the rain is torrential, concrete can be washed away in a heartbeat, so once again early planning is essential. Once the new entrance is complete at Village Walk, it will look fresh and revived in time for our winter residents to return.
