I am the selling agent on this property, the property is pending, closing date is July 23, 2009. CDD (Community District Development) fee is included in the taxes.

What is a CDD? Community Development District
A Community Development District (CDD) is a local, special purpose government authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended and is an alternative method for managing and financing infrastructure required to support community development. .

CDD's possess several powers as a legal entity, such as the right to enter into contracts; the right to own both real and personal property; adopt by-laws, rules and regulations and orders; to sue and be sued; to obtain funds by borrowing; to issue bonds and levy assessments.

CDD's provide a mechanism for the financing and management of new communities, which is consistent with the local governments' development procedures and regulations. They represent a major advancement in Florida's effort to manage its growth effectively and efficiently.

The community development district may impose and levy taxes or assessments, or both taxes and assessments, on the property.

These taxes and assessments pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain public facilities and services of the district and are set annually by the governing board of the district.
These taxes and assessments are in addition to county and other local governmental taxes and assessments and all other taxes and assessment provided for by law.

This home like others in that community, including one I am closing tomorrow, is Pending Sold. The prices have come down so much that properties in this area are selling fast. The taxes are high due to the CDD (community developement district) its a fee that is applied to some comunities in this area. It comes as part of the tax bill. If comunities did not have this the HOA's would be higher.
I live in the comunity next to the one you asked about. We have no CDD but pay $268 per month in HOA. Would much rather the CDD. At least its only for 17-20 years and can be paid off. HOA's are forever and just keep going up.
