Sumter Landing Community Development District was established pursuant to Florida Statutes Chapter 190 and Sumter County Ordinance No.02-06 on March 19, 2002. The lands that are encompassed by the District are located in the Sumter County, FL and consist of approximately 432 acres. The geographical boundary of the District is comprised of commercial properties.
Maintenance of the infrastructure is provided through an annual assessment to commercial property owners based upon square footage of the benefitting properties.
Governance of the Sumter Landing Community Development District is accomplished by a five member Board of Supervisors, elected biannually, as described in Chapter 190.006, Florida Statutes. Inasmuch as there are no residential properties contained within the boundaries of the Sumter Landing Community Development District, members of the Board of Supervisors will continue to be elected by the landowners of property within the boundaries of the District.
The Sumter Landing Community Development District does have the legal ability to provide services outside of the established geographical boundaries. Among the services provided to residential properties within The Villages are security, fire and emergency medical first response (non-transport) services, recreational facilities and services, water retention areas, and executive golf. These services are paid for through the receipt of monthly contractual amenity fees, a fee for service, paid by each residential property within the service area of the District, as described by the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions applying to each residential property.
As a governmental entity in the State of Florida, Sumter Landing Community Development District is held to the same high standards as cities and counties as it pertains to Sunshine Law, Public Records Law, Financial Reporting and Financial Disclosure Laws. Additionally, the Board of Supervisors adheres to Florida Statute Chapter 112, Part III- Code of Ethics for Public Officers and Employees.
