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 CDD held its regular meeting at 2PM, February 13, 2024, at the Club House. The main issue discussed by the Chairman was the overflow parking lot. After a meeting between Jacques and Chairman Barkholz, the following agreement was reached:
Golf course owner was placing an edging to prevent runoff to storm drain.
Sod to be added around drain and easement.
Parking stops will line the southern border to prevent light pollution from disturbing residents.
Stop sign and right turn only sign added.
Hedge line will be installed along northside of lot by CDD in exchange for meeting room for the year.
City permit requirements will be met.
Chairman requested vote to accept agreed upon terms. A vote of 3-2 denied the terms.
District Manager asked for a vote to accept Audit Engagement Letter. This vote passed 5-0.
Field Manager discussed the gates which were violated a couple of weeks ago. Police were called…film was produced…insurance company called…gates are repaired. Fortunately for the district, the gates were not damaged, but the two actuators were and required replacement, costing $4,270.
The mayor and staff did not attend, a mix up in dates, so questions were open to the audience. Residents talked mainly about solutions to the Overflow Parking. One such solution was to ask the owner to put it back in its original state and have CDD pay for the sod in exchange for a meeting room. One supervisor requested a fence be installed along with hedge, because he felt a hedge would be too slow growing. Proposals for meeting rooms by another supervisor and residents were churches and the VFW.
All in all, the meeting was not boring. Perhaps you would like to join us at the next meeting….2pm March 12.
Judi O’Connor, Vice Chairman
