What is a CDD?

A CDD is organized similar to other local governments in Florida, in that the legislative body is composed of a five-member board known as the Board of Supervisors. Panther Trace 1 Community Development District (CDD) is a local, special purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended, established on August 14, 2001, and created by Ordinance 01-22 as an alternative method of planning, acquiring, operating and maintaining community-wide improvements in planned communities.

The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Administrator and District Counsel. Staff members operate utilizing the same formalities as a County Administrator and County Attorney. The Board, through review of advertised Requests for Qualifications, ranks and selects a District Engineer to perform the engineering needs of the District. District Administration staff and the District Attorney administer the operations of the District and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.

The Panther Trace CDD-Phase I provides the community with governing policies, community events, classes, and information.
