Overview of Community Development Districts
The One Daytona Community Development District is one of many Community Development Districts (“Districts”) located within Florida. Districts are special-purpose units of local government established pursuant to and governed by Chapters 189 and 190, Florida Statutes. A District is a type of, and the most popular form of, Florida Special District. Special Districts are similar to cities and counties, except that Special Districts are organizations of local special-purpose government rather than general-purpose government. A CDD’s powers are limited to funding, installing, operating, and maintaining public infrastructure. Examples of other forms of Special Districts include Water Control Districts, Housing Authority Districts, and Fire Control Districts.
