Alley Repaving: Clayton Avenue and Honeysuckle Avenue

The Celebration CDD will begin repaving the following alleys:

  • Honeysuckle Avenue alley in Celebration Village

  • Clayton Avenue alley in North Village

Work will start Monday, November 26, 2018, and be performed Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

  • Clayton Avenue alley will continue through Friday, December 7, 2018

  • Honeysuckle Avenue alley will continue through Wednesday, December 19, 2018

The District’s contractor is Camcor, and they are planning on milling first. Once this is complete, garbage trucks should be able to drive on the milled surface. However, once they start excavating for the curb install, the alley will not be drivable until the paving is complete. The milling will take one to two days; then they will excavate and install the curb in sections. They need to let the concrete curb cure first, and then they will proceed with laying the asphalt.

During the milling phase (removal of the asphalt), the alley may be closed. Some dust can also be expected during this process. During this repair, access to your driveway will be restricted. It is strongly recommended that you move your vehicles to the street parking in front of your home. 

The above schedule will change depending on product availability, production, and weather conditions. However, notification and progress on the project will be available on the Celebration website. Signage will be placed at the entrances to the alley at least 48 hours prior to the closing of the alley. 

If you have any question or need further information regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact the District Office at 407-566-1935.

Thanks for your cooperation during this alley repair project.

Capital Land Management will be removing and replacing sidewalk panels on Golden Canna Lane, starting Monday, October 1, 2018, to Friday, October 5, 2018. Work will be done between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. 

Golden Canna Lane residents, please do not park your vehicle on this road as it will be closed. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact us at 407-566-1935 or admin@celebrationcdd.org.

Community Input Requested for Seven Parking/Roadway Items (updated)

At the August 14, 2018, Celebration CDD workshop, the Board of Supervisors and representatives from Osceola County will be presenting to the community recommendations for improvements to our streets. While these streets are the jurisdiction of Osceola County, they are working with the District and the community as to our desires and wishes. The Board has a liaison who meets with County staff and others from the community, and the following issues are being presented to the community for public comment:

1.      Pedestrian and bicycle safety on Celebration Avenue:  review of the concept plan to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, through striping and traffic calming. Study of conceptual improvements

2.      Parking around Market Square:  review of the concept plan to provide parking along the post office side of the square for a limited time (5 minutes or 10 minutes). Map of proposed change

4.      Crosswalks across Campus Street at Front Street:  review the possibility of installing accessible crosswalk access from the Carlyle (West) Condominiums to Town Center. Implementing this proposal will cost the CCDD approximately $15,000. Map of crosswalks

5.      Spring Lake Street Parking:  review of the County proposal for two new “No Parking” signs at two specific corner areas affecting emergency vehicle access Map of proposed area

6.      Sycamore Street two-way traffic from Celebration Avenue to Mulberry Street: review of the concept plan to expand the existing fire hydrant "No Parking" striping to create a demarcated point of refuge allowing oncoming traffic to pass. Map of proposed parking

Tree Stump Removal

The Celebration CDD continues to move forward with hurricane repairs and cleanup.

The Board awarded a contract at the November 21, 2017, meeting for removal of tree stumps. Contracts were also awarded to remove any leaning trees that present a safety issue. Other leaning trees that are not a safety issue and have a strong root source will remain.

Mr. Tom MacCubbin, a well-known urban horticulturist (link to his web page  http://betterlawns.com/abouttom.asp), has made a recommendation for tree replacements. Over the next couple months, the recommendations Mr. MacCubbin has made will be communicated to the community.

Check the website for further updates or contact the District office at 407-566-1935 with any specific questions or concerns.

Continued Cleanup Efforts from Hurricane Irma

Celebration Community Development District is coordinating with the County and FEMA for the removal of tree stumps. The County is currently removing the piled debris from Hurricane Irma. Removing the tree stumps is another phase that will be addressed.

We will be updating the website with any progress. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions or concerns.

Hurricane Irma Cleanup Efforts

Update regarding the Celebration CDD's work efforts for hurricane cleanup:

  1. The District has completed removal of all debris created by Hurricane Irma. Any further debris placed on the easements, sidewalks, or alleys will be the responsibility of the home owner or resident to remove. 

  2. The Board will review tree replacements and removal of stumps at the next Board meeting scheduled for October 17, 2017, at 6:30 p.m.

  3. The District will have a horticultural consultant coming to Celebration to review the community and provide feedback.  

Please refer to the website for any updates regarding District-related issues. 

Blue Ribbons on CDD Trees and Street Light Poles

To the caring and concerned residents of Celebration who chose to honor the fallen Kissimmee police officers by attaching blue ribbons to trees and light poles:

In the way of an introduction, I am the manager of the Celebration CDD (“District”) and have been for the last 23 years. My job is to administer the affairs of the District and implement the policies of the governing Board of the District.

One important objective of the District as well as CROA and CNOA is to maintain the beauty and tranquility of Celebration. From the establishment of the District in 1994, it has been the policy of the District not to permit District property to be used for signage, or for attaching banners, notices, and similar displays to trees and light poles.

I am sure many in our community have noticed the blue ribbons attached to the street trees and in some cases light poles to honor the two police officers who were killed in the line of duty last weekend, a true tragedy that touched all of us living in Osceola County. The District has not removed the ribbons at this point, but I think we all need to be on the same page about the proper protocol as to when the ribbons will be removed.

Although a true standard does not exist for using trees and light poles to cover the heartfelt emotions for the two officers shown by our residents, I researched the more traditional way of expressing those feelings and an appropriate timeline.

 The standard lies in the lowering to half-staff of our National and State flags. In the case of police officers killed in the line of duty, the flags shall be flown at half-staff on the day of interment at the local agency where the officer was employed, and at the county courthouse and city hall.

As you may know, the two officers will be laid to rest tomorrow. Since the ribbons have been up since last weekend, we have certainly met the guideline established for local and State governments. I would ask those residents who tied the ribbons to please remove them on Saturday morning, August 26.

In the future, I ask that residents refrain from using trees and light poles in this fashion, and perhaps reach out to the families of the officers and donate to them directly or to one of the many sites which have been or are made available.

Thanks for everyone’s understanding during this difficult time.

SEVERE DROUGHT and REUSE WATER

Posted: May 16, 2017, at 11:00 a.m.

Updated: May 22, 2017, at 9:00 a.m.

The South Florida Water Management District has issued a water shortage warning, and the drought level has been raised to a D2 by the U.S. Drought Monitor.

It is strongly recommended that any plans for re-sodding or re-landscaping be postponed at this time. Customers should irrigate accordingly following their two-day-a-week cycle as posted on the website (irrigation schedule) and use water conservatively.  

This severe drought condition is affecting counties throughout Florida including Osceola, Polk, and Orange. 

The links below provide more information regarding the water shortage:
