Concept Plans for New Amenity Center

Through the CDD format, the community can offer its residents a broad range of community-related services and infrastructure to help ensure the highest quality of life possible.  CDD responsibilities within our community include storm water management, potable and irrigation water supply, sewer and wastewater management, landscape management, and street lights.

Management of your Community Development District is handled by Meritus Districts.  The division in management of your multiple Homeowner’s Associations can be found on the HOA page of this site.

We hope that you will find this website educational and useful.  Please contact us with your questions and concerns.

*** Please be advised that fishing and swimming is forbidden in the ponds. The CDD has a trespass agreement in place with the sheriff’s office and it will be strictly enforced for people who violate the no fishing/swimming policy of the district. The district thanks you in advance for your cooperation.***
