Welcome to the official website for the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Community Development District (CDD).

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.

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.




I hope everyone had a great holiday and that with the New Year Covid will become a nuisance rather than the upheaval it has been.  

January’s meeting was held on the 11th, and we had a very decent attendance.  We held a Public Hearing to discuss and vote for the Gazebo rules.  Our Attorney, Patricia Petruff was present to respond to any legal questions or issues regarding the wording and posting of our rules.  Below are the rules as voted on by your Board of Supervisors; a sign will be posted near the gazebo in the near future.

Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Gazebo may be reserved for special events. Reservations will be accepted on a first come - first serve basis and must be made by submitting a Reservation Request Form tothe Gatehouse at least one (1) week prior to the event, at which time a refundable deposit of $300 willbe collected. You are responsible for your own set-up and clean-up.   Please bring a garbage bag foryour trash; you are responsible for its disposal.  A fee of $200 (plus the refundable $300 deposit) is required for use by the general public who are or not CDD property owners or residents.  

The Rules and Regulations for Gazebo use are listed on the sign and must be ALWAYS adhered to. The gazebo is a wonderful asset to our community, and many enhancements have been made forthe enjoyment of all that use it. Those in violation of any rules will be asked to leave without a refund of their deposit and may cause denial for future use.

Additional Rules pertaining to the Gazebo are:

  • There is a limit of twenty (20) persons who may be on the island and bridge at one time.
  • Decorations, signs, etc. may NOT be tacked, nailed, stapled, or glued to the Gazebo.
  • Use of the gazebo is limited to daylight, or Dawn to Dusk.
  • Food, beverages, and tobacco are NOT permitted on the island.
  • All trash items must be removed.
  • Children under the age of ten (10) must always be under adult supervision.
  • Loud music or profanity on the island is NOT permitted.
  • Golfcarts, bicycles, skateboards, scooters, and other similar vehicles are NOT permitted onBridge.
  • Fishing is not permitted.
  • Political use is prohibited.

The Boardwalk repair was done in record time – 2 weeks.  The company worked 7 days a week, and I have heard nothing but compliments.  Even from construction people.  The workmanship is great, and I can’t say enough about this company.   The Board voted to have Avery Framing back in September to finish it. 

And doesn’t the Gazebo look great?  Brick orders are now closed. We have sent in our final order as there were some mistakes, some missing bricks, and some new orders.  There are three white benches that still may be sponsored for $500. The Bridge is not finished in case some of you were wondering.  The wood must cure for 6 months before it can be painted, at which time it will be painted white to match the gazebo.  Also, while we are having the curbing pressured washed, the dirty concrete under the Trex material on the bridge will be washed.

Paving of Terra Ceia Bay Circle has been approved and sent out for bid.  We have received two responses.  I’ll keep you informed when we accept the final bid and get a date for the repaving.

Mayor Shirley Bryant and elected officials will be here at our February meeting to let us know what is going on in Palmetto and answer any question residents may have.  Please plan to attend.

See you next month.

Judi O’Connor, Chairman

Palms of Terra Ceia Bay CDD
