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 on June 9 at 3pm in the Back Bay dining room. Supervisors sat at their own tables with 6-foot distances; and residents/guests sat at their own tables distancing as well.  Masks were worn by all.     All future CDD meetings will now be scheduled in the dining room at a new 3PM meeting time.

The Board unanimously voted to repave Terra Ceia Bay Blvd. in its entirety, as well as Pier Road, and to repair the drains and sealcoat Terra Ceia Bay Circle.    There will be white reflective pedestrian striping from the Gate house to Pier Road.  The contract has been signed, and work will begin in approximately 15 days.  You will be notified by email, if you have signed up for email, and/or by your HOA who will be notified as soon as we have an exact date for the work to begin. 

We have passed a “proposed” budget for next year.  Assessments will remain the same…no CDD tax increase.

Henry and I are busy cleaning the stands on the boardwalk to place the new wildlife pictures.  This should all be done within the next week.  I‘m anxious for you to see them, and receive your feedback.  Of course, I think they look great.  

See you next month…. Remember, the new time is 3pm.
