What is the purpose of the Poinciana CDD?
The District was created to finance and manage the acquisition, construction, operate and maintain of a portion of the infrastructure necessary for community development.
The Ordinance establishing the District authorizes the District to issue bonds for the purpose of financing, funding, planning, establishing, acquiring, constructing or reconstructing, enlarging or extending, equipping, operating, and maintaining water management, water supply, sewer and wastewater management, bridges or culverts, roadways, street lights, and other basic infrastructure projects within or without the boundaries of the District as provided in the establishment Ordinance.
The Solivita community is comprised of two CDDs: the Poinciana CDD and the Poinciana West CDD. Poinciana CDD encompasses approximately 3,240 acres of mixed-use development in northeast Polk County, south of Pleasant Hill Road/Cypress Parkway, west of Marigold Avenue except for the Solivita East neighborhood south of Cypress Parkway and for the Venizia neighborhood south of Walnut Street, and east of Poinciana West CDD. 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 Solivita community. The Poinciana CDD was established pursuant to a Rule of the Florida Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission – Rule 42AA-1.001
Governing Board of Supervisors
The Poinciana 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.
