About the CDD

Creek Preserve Community Development District (the “District”) was established 2003 pursuant to the Uniform Community Development District Act of 1980, otherwise known as Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and enacted  on October 9, 2018 by the Hillsborough County Ordinance 18-28 . The Act provides, among other things, the power to manage basic services for community development, power to borrow money and issue bonds, and to levy and assess non?ad valorem assessments for the financing and delivery of capital infrastructure.

The District was established for the purposes of financing and managing the acquisition, construction, maintenance and operation of certain infrastructure necessary for community development within the District.

Community Development District Organization

The District is organized similar to other local governments in Florida, in that the legislative body is composed of a five-member board known as the Board of Supervisors. The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Manager and District Counsel. Staff members operate utilizing the same formalities as a County Administrator and County Attorney. The Board, through review of advertised Requests for Qualifications, ranks and selects a District Engineer to perform the engineering needs of the District. The District staff administers the operations of the District and implements the Board’s policies and contracts.
