Community Development Districts

We believe that everyone should feel confident that their community will remain beautiful and well-maintained — just like home. We realize that sustainability is important to your future, that’s why The Villages has put in place this local, special purpose government to give you peace of mind.

What Is a Community Development District?

One of the things the Morse family considered when beginning to develop The Villages was sustainable ways to finance, operate and maintain the community’s infrastructure.

In 1992, we created our first Community Development District (CDD) and have continued to add additional districts over the years as the community has grown. These independent units of local, special purpose government are collectively known as The Villages Community Development Districts (VCDD) to serve residents and provide specific functions including, public safety, maintenance, utilities, sanitation, recreation and more.

It’s often shared that, “you know when you’re in The Villages, and when you’re not.” The ability to sustain the beauty and high-quality standards of our community are important to all of our Villagers, along with the peace of mind knowing that their investment goes right back into their hometown.

Below is just a sampling of what is covered through our special purpose local government:
