Est. 2007; Located in Manatee County, Florida

 On October 15, 2007, the City Commission of the City of Palmetto, Florida adopted Ordinance 7-952 establishing the Sanctuary Cove Community Development District (“the District”), a special purpose form of local government established pursuant to and governed by Chapter 190, Florida Statutes.

Currently the 225.22 acres of land found within the District boundary is undeveloped and is developer funded; however, the District 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.

District Infrastructure and Property

The District has yet to issue general revenue bonds for infrastructure nor does it own any property within the District.

District Annual Budgets

The District annually approves an operations and maintenance “O&M” budget.  There is no annual debt service budget since the District has yet to issue general revenue bonds.

District Annual Non-Ad Valorem Assessments

The District is currently being funded by the Developer.

For Additional Information Related to the District and future development plans please contact either:


Florida Law requires that the District publish an annual meeting schedule for the fiscal year one time in a newspaper of general circulation in St. John’s County.  The Board may decide to cancel or reschedule any of its meetings, or add meetings or workshops as items of business dictate. These new meetings will be advertised in the newspaper at least seven (7) days in advance, and agendas are available on the website a week prior to the meeting.

The Board adopts the budget each year in accordance with a process outlined in the Florida Statutes. Each Fiscal Year runs from October 1 to September 30. The operative words in this process are “approve” and “adopt.” The Board will first approve a proposed budget in the spring and will provide it to the City of Palmetto and Manatee County at least 60 days before the budget hearing, at which time the Board will adopt the final budget and levy the resulting non-ad valorem assessments.



For anyone interested in adopted budgets prior to fiscal year 2018, please contact the District Office.
