Welcome to the official web site for the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Community Development District (CDD). This site is funded on behalf of the Community Development District 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 Community Development District DisclosurePlease be advised that the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Community Development District (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 District. 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, non-resident user fees applicable to District recreational facilities, or any other general District issue, please feel free to contact the District Manager.

Message from the Chairman:


The Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Board of Supervisors met on October 8, 2019 at 5 p.m. for the first time with our new District Management team from GMS (Governmental Management Services).  Darrin Mossing and Jason Greenwood, District Managers and Amanda Ferguson, Recording Secretary.

Discussed at this meeting was the workflow between GMS and our Board of Supervisors, and the transitioning of files and bank accounts, etc., from our former District Manager, DPFG.

Discussed also, was the Rule and Policy Change to Impose Fees for Vandalism.  This has to do with the new gate arms:

            Removing, pulling or knocking off gate arm requiring re-attachment.       $150

            Damage to other Gate Facilities not referenced in this section                   Cost plus 10%

Our cameras identify face and license number.  If any damage is done to our new gate arms, the police are called, they run the license plate, and identify the vehicle owner and above fee will be imposed.

As you may have noticed, the boardwalk has been temporarily closed due to boards cupping.  This is happening because of corroded screws holding them down.  Upon inspection by two different companies, we were told the boardwalk was a tripping hazard and recommended its closing until fixed.  The Board voted to fix temporarily until something more permanent can be done.  Due to the prohibitive cost, the District Management Company needs to bid the job out, so a permament fix will not be happening for awhile.  

Meanwhile, have you noticed the Boulevard lately? We are working diligently to perk up our landscaping around the gatehouse and down the Boulevard.  We have a master gardner, Sandra Schadwill, who lives in the community and has been helping with flower and shrub choices.  Thank you, Sandra!

Please join us at our next Board meeting to be held at 5 p.m. on November 12, 2019 in the Back-Bay Grill Meeting Room.  See you then!
