Default CDDs and You

Here's what I'm looking for:

A CURRENT map of the Villages, broken down by CDD. Someone wanting to move to TV, interested in fees and news and problems and new things being created and what not, would want to know "which CDD does this property belong to?" Or "oh I heard about that CDD having problems with water pipes" or "oh yeah that CDD is getting a brand shiny new improvement on infrastructure."

There's a map like that, but it's dated 2008 and parts of it don't show that they're part of any CDD at all (such as Orange Blossom Hills).

I'm sure this has been asked and answered dozens of times, and in fact I think I might've asked at one point months ago. Doing a search for "CDD" comes up with hundreds of threads and I don't want to have to pore through them to find the answer. This really should be on the main VCDD gov site menu but I can't find it.

Info about CDD's is here. Village Community Development Districts .

You need to know what Unit a house belongs to know what district it is in.

https://www.districtgov.org/images/v...ghborhoods.pdf

I'm don't see much difference in practice in living here among CDD's, though there can be some differences in fees. There are information courses in how the CDD's work here.

I'm looking for the "opposite" information. A cross-reference. You're telling me if I know the unit it's in, I can find the CDD.

I'm saying if I know the CDD, I should know where the borders for the CDD are.

As I said, there IS a map of what I'm looking for, but it's outdated and incomplete.

Considering that the CDD is a government entity, I'd say it's woefully negligent in not keeping its own data up to date. The last time it was updated was 2008; 11 years ago.

Are you looking for a map of a specific CDD?

The maps for the older districts are dated 2008 but there are ones for the newer districts that have newer dates. The map for the newest districts is dated 2018. https://districtgov.org/yourdistrict...0South466A.pdf

All these maps look like survey maps used to establish the CDD's so I don't know why they would be resurveyed unless the CCD amended its boundaries.

Some parts of The Villages were established before Florida had CDD's. A CDD cannot be established for an area unless the developer owns all the land there or has the consent of the landowners.

In any case, the best way to get current and accurate info about a CDD is from customer service.

My guess when buying a house in TV, what CDD it’s located in is very, very low on the check list.

Absolutely true. Many, many other considerations.

Yes there are many other considerations. Yes, it's probably very low on the checklist. But when someone says "CDD 4 has allocated an extra 15 million dollars for this special project," I want to know the context. What comprises CDD 4? What does CDD 4 represent? Whether I'm a resident of it or not, it's still The Villages and I still have a vested interest in its successes and failures.

It's sort of like knowing the voting districts in your state. It's not necessary, and it's low on the list of priorities. But it's something that might come in handy some day when someone says "Oh yeah I live in district 3, and you know how THEY think about this topic." Knowing what comprises district 3, and knowing that they have a particular interest in certain topics, is useful.

Perhaps some of you haven't ever felt education for its own sake was important. I do. Which is why I asked the question.

No, I'm not. I'm looking for a district-identified map of the villages.

You know, like how some maps of the USA are printed with the lines of each state. And some maps of the USA are printed to designate the political party preferences of each state. Some of them are printed to show the topography, and some to show typical wind patterns.

I'd like a map of The Villages that shows the district boundaries.

Not sure why this is turning into a debate on priorities and whether or not I need it for a reason.

There are lots of reasons to know what "CDD 7" MEANS, in the context of the Villages as a whole. Usually it's whenever a news article mentions a district by name, and I have to scramble to figure out what they're talking about.
