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 September 8 at the new 3pm time in the Back Bay dining room.  Masks are required to attend the CDD meetings until otherwise advised.

After last month’s board meeting the gate barcode reader died.  This is the last old piece of gate equipment.  The cost to replace was expensive and required an emergency meeting of the Board to determine whether it was cost efficient to fix or replace.  The Board voted to replace the reader and the invoice was ratified at our meeting yesterday.  We do not have a date yet as to when it will be installed.  My hope is by early October, our gate system, including the iron gates will be working again.  I should have learned by now, however, that contractor’s firm installation dates are an oxymoron.  

In our meeting yesterday, the Board of Supervisors held a Public Hearing for the Adoption of the Budget for Fiscal Year 2021.   Please be aware that your CDD taxes remain the same for the third year in a row.  We have had a lot on our plate this year, but we have worked within our budget, and it is our goal to continue doing so.

Have you walked the pier and the boardwalk lately?  The pier is as clean as the day it was installed.  The Board placed buckets and brushes by the benches to brush off bird droppings.  Residents have been diligent about keeping the benches clean.  A broom was requested by a resident, the Board placed one on the pier, and several residents now take turns sweeping the pier daily, as well as the boardwalk.   Thank you!

The roads are not finished yet.  We are still waiting for the lines.  This is taking longer than we originally thought because of some invoice disputes, but we are back on track and hopefully by the end of the month……we’ll see. 

Next month’s meeting is at 3pm, October 13 in the Back Bay dining room.   I hope to see you there.…. And please stay healthy.
