CDD FAQs:

  • Q. What is a community development district?
    • A. A community development district (CDD) is an independent special-purpose unit of local government established by a developer or landowner with government approval. CDDs offer an attractive and cost-effective means of providing for the financing and management of major infrastructure systems and services to support the development of new communities.

  • Q. Why do we have a CDD?
    • A. Because Florida is behind the pace of population growth in providing basic infrastructure and services, developers face more pressure to provide those facilities and to do so at a faster pace. In part, these demands are fueled by the intense political pressure not to raise taxes. Permitting agencies make additional demands for long-term assurances that infrastructure will be maintained even after the developer's involvement in a project has ended. Establishment of a CDD can help address these pressures. Although CDDs are independent local special-purpose governments that may levy taxes and assessments and issue bonds, the landowner-developer remains in control of the CDD in its early years. When used effectively, CDDs can help spread out development costs, utilize tax-free financing methods, meet the concerns of permitting agencies with respect to long-term maintenance of infrastructure and address the concerns about politically unpopular property tax increases.

  • Q. Why not just use a homeowners' association?
    • A. A homeowners' association established under Chapter 617, Florida Statutes, as a special type of not-for-profit corporation may be adequate to address certain issues, but it does not have a CDD's range of powers and options to effectively finance major capital improvements. CDDs are empowered to finance, construct, operate and/or manage water and sewer facilities, water management and control facilities, roads and streetlights, and bridges. In addition, with permission of the local government with jurisdiction, a CDD may provide parks, recreational amenities, security, schools, waste collection and mosquito control. Of course, the suitability of a CDD for a project as compared to a homeowners' association depends upon a variety of variables, such as the project, the infrastructure needed for development, and other factors. A homeowners' association may be the better choice for some projects and a CDD may be the better choice for other projects.

  • Q. Are CDDs really government?
    • A. Yes. A CDD is as much a unit of local government as a county or a city. Board meetings must be noticed in a local newspaper and are always conducted in public. CDDs must make district records available for public inspection during normal business hours. Supervisors are subject to the same financial disclosure requirements as other local officials. Thus, CDDs can be particularly visible. Indeed, the fact that CDDs are subject to public scrutiny provides other local governments and permitting agencies with a level of comfort for the governmental powers that CDDs have been given by the Legislature.
