Welcome to the official website for the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Community Development District (CDD). This site is funded by the CDD in an effort to help educate the general public about the services provided by the District, and to highlight the other agencies involved in the day-to-day operations of the community. Palms of Terra Ceia Bay CDD (the "District") Disclosure: Please be advised that "the District', a local unit of special purpose government created under Florida law, has constructed and is responsible for the maintenance of certain improvements, infrastructure and facilities within the community. The District financed this construction through the sale of tax-exempt bonds, a form of public financing. As a result, and in accordance with applicable federal and state law, all District owned improvements, infrastructure and facilities are and shall remain open and accessible to the general public. Should you have any questions on this matter or any other general District issue, please feel free to contact the District Manager.
The CDD held a budget workshop at 2pm on June 6 with a regular meeting immediately following. During the Workshop the Board passed a constrained budget which includes a two per cent resident tax increase. The reason we are tightening our belts is because the Board opted to squeeze into one year the repair of the boardwalk, which was originally presented to the Board as a 4 year project. Between the boardwalk at $300,000 and the gazebo project at $73,000, our reserves were hit pretty hard.
Supervisor Gard was concerned about the solar streetlight placed on Fairway Trace not being very bright and suggested that perhaps the CDD should place a 2nd solar streetlight; the Board agreed. Supervisor Weidner suggested we raise the amount allotted for insurance to cover the huge price increases.
At the regular meeting the proposed budget was passed. There will be a public hearing at our August meeting. Supervisor Gard also spent some time questioning the plants selected for the replacement of older plants on the boulevard and on the Pier Circle. The Board agreed to go ahead with the work as presented with plantings our Landscaper has suggested.
Supervisor O’Connor suggested someone look at all the sand that is collecting in our gutters. Not certain whether blocking water or actually washing into our drains, it could be a matter of concern. Supervisor Swetland said he would look into it.
Among resident concerns were loud and vulgar language coming from a party held at the clubhouse. Residents were advised to call the police, because waiting for the restaurant or CDD to handle would be after the fact. District Manager Greenwood will write a letter to the restaurant informing them of the complaint and requesting they monitor their guests in the future.
The CDD received kudos for their work with FPL and eventually getting the streetlights fixed on the boulevard. There was also the question of a broken gate arm that has been down all weekend. Unfortunately, it seems that whenever there is a problem with our gates or arms it is over the weekend. The arm is being replaced at this time and will be back on by tomorrow or possibly at the end of day today.
Our next meeting will be held at 3pm on July 11, 2023. I do hope you can attend.
GATEHOUSE HOURS: Monday through Thursday 8:30AM - 1:30PM
Please allow as much as 30 minutes for processing and obtaining a new gate pass. Gate passes are $30 each and we accept cash or check for payment.
