The Moody River Estates Community Development District is a local, special-purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended, and established on November 9, 2004, by Lee County Ordinance #04-20 as an alternative method of planning, acquiring, operating and maintaining community-wide improvements in planned communities.
The Moody River Estates CDD encompasses an area of approximately 308 acres located in Lee County, Florida. The District is surrounded by residential subdivisions as well as Skyline Drive to the South; Hancock Bridge to the North and West; and Moody Road to the East.
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.
