What is a CDD?

A Community Development District (“CDD” or “District”) is a local unit of special-purpose government created primarily for the purpose of providing infrastructure for new communities and limited to the performance of those specialized functions authorized by Chapter 190, Florida Statutes.

The Enterprise CDD was established by rule of the Florida Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission effective March 29, 1994, pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and consists of approximately 1,552 acres of land located in Celebration, Florida, Osceola County generally depicted as lying north of Route 417 GreeneWay and south of U.S. Hwy 192, east and west of I-4, the western portion lying along the World Drive extension.

Enterprise CDD is home to the Celebration Place office complex, Florida Hospital, Fire Station 72, Celebration Self Storage, Water Tower Place, Mona Lisa Hotel and Condominiums, and Celebration Community Church, all of which are located on the east side of I-4. Development on the west side of I-4 is still being planned by the master developer, The Celebration Company.

What is the purpose of the Enterprise CDD?

The District was created to finance and manage the acquisition, construction, operate and maintain of a portion of the infrastructure necessary for community development. The Ordinance establishing the District authorizes the District to issue bonds for the purpose of financing, funding, planning, establishing, acquiring, constructing or reconstructing, enlarging or extending, equipping, operating, and maintaining water management, water supply, sewer and wastewater management, bridges or culverts, roadways, street lights, and other basic infrastructure projects within or without the boundaries of the District as provided in the establishment Ordinance.

The District is the water, wastewater, and reuse utility provider for the Celebration community, and also maintains common area landscape and hardscape, street lighting, stormwater system, aquatic weeds control, and mosquito control within the boundaries of the Enterprise CDD.


 

The Celebration community is comprised of two CDDs, the Enterprise CDD and the Celebration CDD (website www.CelebrationCDD.org). The creation of these two Districts provides an efficient mechanism for managing and financing the public infrastructure associated with the planning and development of the Celebration community. Enterprise CDD is predominately commercial and mixed land uses with the water distribution system being the primary system of infrastructure. Other infrastructure maintained by the Enterprise CDD includes common area landscaping, common area hardscape, stormwater retention ponds, and street lights.

The District is governed by a five-member Board whose members are charged with the operational decisions for the District and those benefited by its infrastructure.
