 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.

 A map of the District’s boundaries can be found here: LINK

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 will fund its O&M budget by collection via direct-bill from property owners located within its boundaries.

The District adopted Rules of Procedure on May 13, 2014:  LINK

Budgets:

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 2016, please contact the District Office.
