The Sarasota National CDD encompasses an area of approximately 2,400 acres in unincorporated Sarasota County, Florida and is generally located south of U.S. 41 and east of Jacaranda Blvd. Infrastructure consists of public roadways, storm water management, potable water, wastewater, irrigation and reuse, landscaping, environmental facilities and off-site improvements.
A Community Development District (CDD) provides the "solution" to Florida's need to provide valuable community infrastructure generated by growth, ultimately without overburdening other governments and their taxpaying residents. CDDs represent a major advancement in Florida’s effort to manage its growth effectively and efficiently. This allows a community to establish higher construction standards, meanwhile providing a long-term solution to the operation and maintenance of the community’s facilities.
