Welcome to the official web site for the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Community Development District (CDD). This site is funded on behalf of the Community Development District 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 Community Development District DisclosurePlease be advised that the Palms of Terra Ceia Bay Community Development District (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 District. 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, non-resident user fees applicable to District recreational facilities, or any other general District issue, please feel free to contact the District Manager.

Please allow, as much as, 30 minutes for processing and obtaining a new gate pass. Gate passes are $30 each and we accept cash or check for payment. If you are a new resident, please make sure you bring your purchase or rent agreement on your first visit. We will need this in order to show that you are a legitimate resident of the neighborhood and we will make a copy of it for our files.

Message From Brad Smith, Chairman:

To my fellow residents of The Palms of Terra Ceia: The situation regarding vehicle safety seems to be getting worse. Cars are ignoring stop signs, especially at the gatehouse. Part of the reason for the Stop Signs at the gatehouse is to slow traffic before the golf cart crossing. Speeding on Terra Ceia Blvd. is also endangering pedestrians. The reckless driving has got to stop before we hurt one of our own. This is your neighborhood and the folks around you are your neighbors. We are getting assistance from the Palmetto police and we have told them we prefer issuing tickets at the first violation instead of giving a warning. Please take responsibility for your safety and the safety of those around you. Drive Safely.
