District Facilities Closed Due to COVID-19

The Pine Ridge Plantation Community Development District Staff continues to monitor local, sate and federal communications, guidelines, recommendations and advisories regarding COVID-19.

As you are likely aware, many local and state government facilities and programs have been closed. In an effort to minimize the risk of contracting the virus, and consistent with federal, state, and local guidelines, the District has made the decision to close all recreational facilities and suspend all recreational programs effective immediately and until further notice. The District will notify you of any change to operations and will continue to make decisions based on governmental recommendations, which may and have changed rapidly.

While we recognize the disruption is less than ideal, the health and safety of District residents, guests and on-site staff is of utmost importance.  Please continue to monitor the District’s website at and your email for further updates regarding District facilities and programs. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all work together in the unprecedented time.

District Staff



Community Development District Overview

The Pine Ridge Plantation Community Development District is a local, special purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as an alternative method of planning, acquiring, operating and maintaining community-wide improvements in planned communities. A 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. Community Development Districts represent a major advancement in Florida’s effort to manage its growth effectively and efficiently. This allows a developer to establish higher construction standards, meanwhile providing a long-term solution to the operation and maintenance of the community’s facilities.

CDD Organization

The Pine Ridge Plantation Community Development District is organized similar to other local governments in Florida, in that the legislative body is composed of a five-member board known as the Board of Supervisors. The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Administrator and District Counsel. Staff members operate utilizing the same formalities as a County Administrator and County Attorney. The Board, through review of advertised Requests for Qualifications, ranks and selects a District Engineer to perform the engineering needs of the District. District Administration staff and the District Attorney administer the operations of the District and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.
