Btw, Ock, your CDD fees aren't covering the cost of major road construction and maintenance, in the form of a SR 9B extension to Race Track Road.
Yes, I know, each Development District has an elected board and oversee's projects within the district. I believe someone asked if all of the tax payers in St. Johns are going to take a hit for this? Chances are, yes, at least somewhat, it depends on their being a CDD around that location.
Also just learned that some big bucks are coming from Flagler to plop in some new roadways including SR-313 running from US 1 north of the St. Augustine Airport to the south end of St. Augustine as a 'Beltway.' This will be a regular 4 lane divided highway with 6 lanes in the built up portions from the Outlets to 207. I'm not sure where it links back to US-1 south but my guess is a tie-in to Wildwood Drive. The road would do the same things for St. Augustine's outlaying development that Nova Road and Clyde Morris Road did in Daytona Beach. Though the road wasn't scheduled for several years, Flagler is going to build the northern half out of pocket, it will be a carbon copy of San Sebastian Way. They will not pay for a flyover of the railroad and US-1 just the standard well guarded crossing.
These are not boom times in St. Johns, but apparently the county never got the word, I've got 70 homes under construction all around me (from 6 FREAKING AM until O-Dark-30). The other end of WGV has several new neighborhoods going up as well. Rivertown is busting at the seams with an explosive growth surge that includes the new river front park, and a grand new entry, another lake, bike trails, and large amenity center. At full build-out, Nocatee is expected to have 13,000 homes; and up to one million square feet of retail, four million square feet of office and nine public schools. Almost two-thirds of the land will be placed in preservation and protected. In 2011, Nocatee was the 14th fastest growing master planned community in the United States.
Split Pine CDD, which oversees the 2,000-acre Duval County portion of Nocatee. The Tolomato CDD services 13,000 acres to be built in St. Johns County. These are/will be new CDD districts.
These are the closest CDD'S I could find a map of, it appears in the County Records that that area might be a future CDD.
