Perhaps you need a real estate professional to accompany you to Montterra. The reps there can answer many of your questions directly so there is no passing on of answers to your questions.
School boundaries can be changed as time goes by and no one can give you a positive answer as to the outcome or time table concerning same. Please note that there is still construction going on within the project and this possibly lessens some of the access security. Once the developer turns the association over to the residents, it will be their job to have security as they deem necessary.

PS: Here's an article concerning CDD's for you to look at.
The HOA fee is $75 and includes the CDD Tax (Community Development District), the manned and gated main entrance, the clubhouse and fitness center, swimming pool, kids pool and playground, tennis and basketball courts, and walking trail. It was $1,970 for the year and that varies. The CDD is included as a non-ad valorem assessment on the annual property tax bills for each lot. These vary each year as taxes change.
The public schools are Cooper City Elementary School, Pioneer Middle and Cooper City High and your children would be eligible to attend the new Renaissance Charter School on Palm Avenue, which is open for K-8 grade children.
My only advice, as a professional Realtor, who covers all of Broward County, but is particular familiar with South Broward and this location is to be sure that you've checked other resale properties in the general area. The homes at Monterra are super nice, but the lots are smaller and you may find that you get a lot more for your money with a really nice resale home close by. Of course, it all depends on what you're looking for. If you really want brand new and don't mind a smaller lot, then these are super nice and much in demand.
If I can help you in any way, I'd love to work with you. I have clients who have bought in Monterra and are very happy there.
Hope this helps,
