BASIC INFORMATION

Introduction to the Winter Garden Village Community Development District  

 

On April 5, 2007, the City Commission of the City of Winter Garden, Florida adopted Ordinance 6-2006 establishing the Winter Garden Village at Fowler Groves Community Development District (“the District”), a special purpose form of local government established pursuant to and governed by Chapter 190, Florida Statutes.

The District is comprised of approximately 174.8 acres of land within the City of Winter Garden, Florida on which approximately 1,150,000 square feet of retail space, 60,000 square feet of office space, and 450 residential units are planned for development. The District is designed to provide community infrastructure,, services, and facilities along with their operations and maintenance and has the authority to impose and levy taxes or assessments, or both taxes and assessments, on the property found within its boundaries.  These taxes and/or assessments pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain public facilities and services of the District and are to be set annually by the governing Board of the District.  These taxes and assessments, when levied, are in addition to county and other local governmental taxes and assessments and all other taxes and assessments provided for by law.  The District also imposes certain fees to pay the construction, operation and maintenance costs of certain District facilities.
