About Your CCDD

The Celebration Community Development District (CCDD) is a limited special-purpose government, established by the Florida Land and Water Adjudicatory Committee pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes. We are responsible for the maintenance of roadway lights, street sweeping, common area landscaping, street trees and turf, alleys, public parks and trails, and aquatic weed control. CCDD also maintains the lakes, stormwater retention areas and drainage system in Celebration and some Osceola County services, such as mosquito control and security.

Celebration CDD is bounded on the north by S.R. 417, on the west by I-4, on the east by the C-1 canal, and on the south by Reedy Creek.

The Celebration community is comprised of two local CDDs; the other, Enterprise CDD (www.enterprisecdd.org) is predominately responsible for water distribution services and for commercial and mixed land uses north of S.R. 417 and west of I-4 to World Drive.

PURPOSE

The District was created to finance and manage the acquisition, construction, operate and maintain of a portion of the infrastructure necessary for community development.
