Grumblings cane be heard in the West Villages because of a possible address change that would give residents a North Port mailing address rather than the current Venice address. A petition against the idea was dropped off at North Port City Call with over 700 signatures. Those signatures represent those who want to keep the address of Venice. Some fear that if the addresses change from Venice to North Port property value could go down. Leaders have said that the reason for the change is not to necessarily change names, but to give West Villages its own zip code.
