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 Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Board of Supervisors met April 13 at 3pm in the Back Bay dining room.  Masks are still required to attend the CDD meetings until otherwise advised.

Bonnie Menge, Chairperson of the resident committee to restore the gazebo, was present and advised the Board that over $11,000.00 has been collected so far from selling bricks to raise funds for the project.  So, we are half-way toward the targeted amount.  The Committee chose a 16-foot octagonal gazebo and upgraded it with as low-maintenance packages as possible.  The gazebo is vinyl, with composite decking and has a rubber slate roof that golf balls will not damage.    The Board voted to accept the Committee’s recommendation.

If you should have questions or would like to purchase a brick, please contact a committee member, or stop in at the gatehouse and talk to Henry Ortland.

Repaving Terra Ceia Bay Circle was discussed.  Three paving companies were petitioned, two returned bids. The quotes were $50,000 with 1” milling from Mariotti, who paved our boulevard last summer, and $63,000 with 1 ½” milling.  The sticker shock caused the Board to table the discussion until a future meeting.

We had to close a finger walk on the boardwalk this month.  A handrail had fallen into the water.  We replaced it with a new board, but then discovered that most of the handrails on that portion of the boardwalk were loose along with several decking boards.  The Board did not discuss any recommendations but is prepared to discuss in future meetings.   

The weather is finally changing, and vaccines have become more accessible.  Soon, we will be back to the activities that we have missed so much this past year.  But meanwhile, please continue to wear your masks, keep your distance, and stay healthy.

Judi O’Connor, Chairman
