The CDD makes it possible for the community to offer the most desirable elements of a master-planned community. Residents enjoy high-quality infrastructure facilities and services with the comfort and assurance of knowing that the standards of the community will be maintained long after the developer is gone. With a CDD in place, residents are assured of the ability to control quality and value for years to come. CDD fees are collected through ad valorem taxes every year to ensure consistent funding for high quality maintenance of infrastructure and amenities. Until the community is fully built out, the developer funds all maintenance budget shortfalls.
