What Is A CDD?

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 Stevens Plantation CDD is authorized to provide certain infrastructure improvements as outlined in the engineer’s report for the community. (Click here to review the engineer’s reports.) Once the infrastructure is built, the CDD is then required to maintain these public facilities. Services for this CDD include maintenance of CDD landscaping, ponds, fountains, and other District facilities as outlined in the engineer’s reports and the fiscal year budgets.

Florida law does not allow for the District to adopt and enforce any land use plans or zoning ordinances, nor does it allow the District to grant building permits. These functions are to be performed by general-purpose local governments, such as the City of St. Cloud and Osceola County, that have jurisdiction over the lands within the District.

Stevens Plantation CDD

Stevens Plantation CDD is located entirely within the boundaries of the City of Saint Cloud in Osceola County and comprises approximately 590 contiguous acres. The land area of the District is bounded on the north by a canal and residential property, the east by Canoe Creek Road between 17th Street and Deer Run Road, the south by improved residential property, and the west by residential improved property.

The purpose of the District is to construct, operate, and maintain infrastructure to support the community, including stormwater management, roadways, hardscape and landscape, and street lighting.

Stevens Plantation 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.

For any questions that are not answered on this website, please feel free to contact the District Office.
