WELCOME

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.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN:

The Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Board of Supervisors met May 11 at 3pm in the Back Bay dining room.  Masks are still required to attend the CDD meetings until otherwise advised.

May 11th’s meeting was primarily a budget meeting for the Fiscal Year 2022.  We approved a Proposed Budget and set a Public Hearing Date for Adoption for August 10, 2021.  And once again we approved a budget that will not increases taxes for our residents.

We purchased a new computer for our Field Manager this past month, and our monitoring agent set it up for us and integrated data from old computer to new.  What a difference.  We will be purchasing a new monitor as well with much better resolution… to read those license plates.

Our Management company, GMS, is moving closer to us in the next few weeks.  This will allow for better communication and access to their equipment and extra services.  Among those services is an industrial power washer that will clean curbing.  We have asked for a price, and hopefully this service may be once we can benefit from.   

Brick sales are starting to slow down.  If you have not purchased one, please see someone from

The resident committee to purchase one or stop by the gatehouse and Henry can help you.

Last, but by no means the least……There have been several thefts in the neighborhood lately -mostly in the condos with garages underneath the building.  I have been in communication with Chief of Police, Scott Tyler, and he tells me the thefts are remarkably similar.  They have occurred mostly in unlocked (but not all) vehicles, storage sheds and bicycles.  Chief Tyler advises that we always lock our vehicles (most robberies occur in unlocked vehicles), never leave keys in the car, keep garage doors closed, make sure items of value are not visible and tempting to a thief.  Also, purchase locks for your storage bins, keep a lock on your bicycle and make sure it is securely chained.  You can also register your bicycle at the police station.  This makes it easier for the police to identify if pawned.  If you see someone or something suspicious, do not hesitate to call the police.  It may not always be significant, but it helps the police gather enough information to eventually make arrests.  Security cameras may cost, but police do recommend them.

Judi O’Connor, Chairman
