I read somewhere online that we could be getting a Target, but in another place, that there were no plans currently for it.  I'm so sick of Walmart it hurts, it would be great to have another option close by.  There is nothing worse then going to Walmart and sitting behind someone with a full shopping cart in the 20 items or less line.

Any credible source regarding Target?

I hear you, regarding Walmart. Nothing worse than having to go to Walmart on a Saturday.

I only saw a couple posts on different message boards about Target.  Most were debunking the notion that one was actually coming.  I think one person stated they called the Target corporate offices and they stated they had no plans at this time.  Damn shame!

TARGET TARGET TARGET! I am a breadman that lives in and serves the Poinciana area. I have heard the buzz that a Target was planned then canceled. I know for certain that the area behind walgreens is set for a new hospital.

 

BUT HEY, at least we are getting a Starbucks..

Living in Poinciana for 6 years I have seen alot of growth in this area. Like mentioned above Lowes the Walmart and the new mall next to it. Solivita Marketplace, The shops at Bellago and more that I probably havent mentioned. Still the roads are a problem because there is virtually one road in and out, even with the expansion of Poinciana Blvd. and the road expansion off Marigold, that does not solve all are problems. Why has Poinciana been so hard stricken with Real Estate wows? Its not because of lack of expansion. Maybe the roads are one reason, or part of it, and maybe the commercial property is another. Granted we have grown so much but then you have to ask yourself, really with what. The Loop has made a huge difference for Hunters Creek! Yet we still get strip malls and over size stip malls. Chillis pulls out and you ask why? Wendys pulls out and you ask why? How many other companys have pulled out that we have no idea about and still we ask why? Maybe it has to do with some stupid color codes for buildings. Ask Martins BBq who had to change there awnings.  Maybe its the association who collects association fees and says that the money is going to improve and widen roads, and keep are area clean yet I see it getting more run down than it was 6 years ago. Maybe someone should demand an accounting of this money. Better yet, maybe we the residents should have a say were it goes. Or maybe we should incorperate Poinciana into a city and put the APV out of buisness. Know the APV will tell you property taxes will go up because of what a city needs (police,fire,hospitals)ect. But if we do incorperate, maybe will stop Avatar from driving price up on places like Chillis and stupid color codes and we can get other realtor groups in here. The problem is we are expanding but yet were are the Kohls, Circuit Citys, Big name restaurants like Macoroni Grill, or malls, like the loop with movie theaters. Maybe they would come if the APV and Avatar dont drive up the prices and enforce dumb rules. Maybe if we incorperate we might get roads constructed for easier access, which alot of people and potential home buyers avoid in this area because of this. As much that has come and as much as the Apv says it has done, were is the break through. The apv would tell you back in 1980's when this community was being developed and assumed to be this big or bigger they never addressed this issues that are here now. They didnt invision that with growth we need hospitals, access roads, shopping centers of relevance, schools, and much more. Yet they are working on this now. How good is it to try to correct mistakes made from poor judgement. Yet we are told we are working on it. Maybe they should inform the communit better with plans of what is comming and what they are doing to make them stay and not pull out. Im tired to hear we are working on it and we done so much already. I want to here what they can do to lure big construction groups with big projects, a elementary, middle and high school in every village if not more than one of each. Stop telling us what you have done and stop driving people and industry away. Start doing what you have to to make Poinciana attractive to people and home buyers and industry that makes a difference for people to stay and people to buy. Stop putting Poinciana and its residents in bigger dire straights were they are afraid of loosing there home like hundreds already have. What oncee looked attractive is on the verge of disaster. Maybe we the residents should start to incorperate and take are city back and move foward.

I think many Poinciana residents feel the same about Walmart and wished we had a Target or Kmart nearby. I am happy for all the new shops we have gotten but what I think is a little unfair is that most of these shops will not hire 16 year olds. I have a responsible and motivated 16 year old who is more than willing to work but most of the new shops will not hire until they are 17 or 18. I understand that from an employers point of view not all 16 year old teenagers are reliable or responsible but I that is what the interview process is for. Maybe if some of the teenagers were given an opportunity to have a job it would keep them off the streets. I have only lived here 3 years this August but I agree with some of the comments made in this forum. The residents do need to do something to preserve Poinciana as a place where we are not embarrassed to call home. We definitely need more schools and parks especially on the Polk County side! Unfortunately, this would mean an increase in property taxes and some residents would probably complain about that. When it comes to Poinciana I am not sure if it a matter of the residents not wanting to do their part in the community or maybe they just don't know what resources to contact to get things started. I read the Poinciana Pioneer every week just to keep up with what is going on in my community. I think this forum is a great outlet for many residents in Poinciana because you get a chance to express yourself (respectfully) and also see that other residents feel the same way. Now it is just a matter of figuring out what we can do to positively change our community and make it better and safer for our children.

We need a Target in Poinciana FL, I am sick of walmart and im tired of having to drive 35 minutes to kissimmee 192 or another 35 minutes to highway 27 Davenport. Us the people of Poinciana deserve a SuperTarget. I've been a home owner in poinciana for 5 years now and planing on being here for a while. so, I would  rather spend money in my City rather then driving 35 minutes to another town to spend my money.
