Community Development District
A Community Development District (“CDD” or “District”) is a local unit of special-purpose government, created pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes (“F.S.”), and is limited to the performance of those specialized functions authorized therein. The District is a body created, organized, constituted and authorized to function specifically as prescribed in Chapter 190, F.S. for the delivery of urban community development services; and the formation, powers, governing body, operation, duration, accountability, requirements for disclosure, and termination, as required by general law of the State of Florida. The primary function of a CDD is to provide infrastructure for a new community—roadways, street lights, stormwater management areas, walking trails and sidewalks, and other such infrastructure items.
The Celebration CDD is authorized to provide certain infrastructure improvements. Once the infrastructure is built, the CDD then is required to maintain these public facilities. Services for this CDD include maintenance of roadway lights, street sweeping, common area landscaping, street trees and turf, alleys, public parks and trails, and aquatic weed control. The Celebration CDD also maintains the lakes, stormwater retention areas and drainage system in Celebration. Supplemental services are funded through the District to enhance County services, such as mosquito control.
The Celebration community is comprised of two CDDs, the Celebration CDD and the Enterprise CDD (website www.enterprisecdd.org). The creation of these two Districts provides an efficient mechanism for managing and financing the public infrastructure associated with the planning and development of the Celebration community. Enterprise CDD is predominately commercial and mixed land uses with the water distribution system being the primary system of infrastructure.

The Celebration CDD is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors (the “Board”), and they encourage the public to attend their meetings to learn more about the community and to see local government at work.
All records of the District are subject to Florida’s Public Records Laws, and as such, are available for the public’s review at the District Office during normal business hours. We have included many of the commonly requested items on this website under Public Records for your convenience.
