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 its regular meeting at 2PM, November 14 at the Back Bay Grill. As a reminder, the CDD's new meeting time is 2PM; meeting dates remain the same - 2nd Tuesday of each month. December's meeting, however, is a week earlier next month and is on December 5.
So far, the "No Parking" signs on Pier Circle have been working, and Waste Management has been picking up the trash on a regular basis. The sign on the fence citing the illegality of household refuse to be placed in the bin has not deterred one resident from placing all his outdoor cushions covered with ants in the bin. But abuse has lessened considerably.
It was suggested that the resident entrance gates be used by residents with stickers 24 hours a day, and all others use the guest side. The reason for this change is that visitors, vendors, and "trucks" continue to drive through the resident's side, putting our roof at risk. Supervisor Gard brought up the issue of gate times. Both items have been placed on the December agenda for discussion.
You may have noticed that there is new lighting at the gatehouse and on our sign. Some tweaks are needed to accommodate Christmas lights. But hopefully, with the upgrades, our lighting has been fixed.
Henry and volunteer Jean Casale have been diligently working on an email list and will be reaching out to HOA and Condo Association's shortly to have their residents give their individual written consent to receive emails from the CDD. The CDD continues in its efforts to keep the community informed of all that's happening in the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay.
Approval by the Board was sought to change our policy of fixing streetlights after 3 have burned out to change the bulbs after one has burned out. The old policy had to do with pre-LED bulbs that burned out much faster than the new LED bulbs. Henry was charged with locating a vendor that charges a lot less for a lift than we are currently paying.
District Manager Greenwood reported the gold course owner, in his attempt to provide more parking, constructed an additional parking lot without consulting the CDD; and in doing so, he did not meet the CDD's standards. The owner has been contacted and informed of the same.
Among public comments was the question of having better communication with its residents and suggested more HOA representatives attend meetings. The CDD encourages not only better attendance at its meetings but also a much healthier HOA representation. We were encouraged to have three HOA presidents at November's meeting and urge other Associations to send representatives as well.
See you next month... December's meeting is a week earlier next month... December 5 at 2PM.
GATEHOUSE HOURS: Monday through Thursday 8:30AM - 1:30PM
