Parkway Center Community Development District (the “District”) was established November 22, 1988 pursuant to the Uniform Community Development District Act of 1980, otherwise known as Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, by the Hillsborough County Ordinance 88-36. The Act provides, among other things, the power to manage basic services for community development, power to borrow money and issue bonds, and to levy and assess non‐ad valorem assessments for the financing and delivery of capital infrastructure.

Whereas, Robert E. Woolley/ Florida, Inc. (Petitioner) has petitioned the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners (the County) to adopt an ordinance establishing the Parkway Center Development District (the District) pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes; and

Whereas, the District will constitute a timely, efficient, effective, responsive, and economic way to deliver community development services in the area thereby providing a solution to the County’s planning, management, and financing needs for delivery of capital infrastructure therein without overburdening the County and its taxpayers; and

Whereas, all statements contained in the petition are true and correct; and

Whereas, the creation of the District is not inconsistent with any applicable element or portion of the state comprehensive plan or the local comprehensive plan; and

Whereas, the area of land within the District is of sufficient size, is sufficiently compact, and is sufficiently contiguous to be developable as one functional interrelated community; and

Whereas, the District is the best alternative available for delivering the community development services and facilities to the area that will be served by the District; and

Whereas, the community development services and facilities of the District will not be incompatible with the capacity and uses of existing local and regional community development services and facilities; and

Whereas, the area that will be served by the District is amendable to separate special-district government.

Now, therefore, be it ordained by the Board of County Commissioners of Hillsborough County, Florida this 17th day of November, 1988, as follows:

  1. SECTION 1: That there is hereby created a Community Development District which shall operate in accordance with the charter attached as Exhibit 1.
  2. SECTION 2: That this Ordinance shall be effective immediately upon receipt of acknowledgement that a copy of this Ordinance has been filed with the Secretary of State.
  3. SECTION 3: That if any section, subsection, sentence, clause, provision, or part of this Ordinance shall be invalid for any reason, the remainder of this Ordinance shall not be affected thereby, but shall remain in full force and effect.
