What Is A CDD?

A Community Development District (“CDD” or “District”) is a local unit of special-purpose government, created pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes (“F.S.”), and is limited to the performance of those specialized functions authorized therein. The Stoneybrook West CDD is authorized to provide certain infrastructure improvements as outlined in the engineer’s report for the community. (Click here to review the various engineer’s reports.) Once the infrastructure is built, the CDD is then required to maintain these public facilities. Services for this CDD include maintenance of CDD landscaping, ponds, and other District facilities as outlined in the engineer’s reports and the fiscal year budgets.

Florida law does not allow for the District to adopt and enforce any land use plans or zoning ordinances, nor does it allow the District to grant building permits. These functions are to be performed by general-purpose local governments, such as Orange County and the City of Winter Garden, that have jurisdiction over the lands within the District.

Stoneybrook West CDD

Stoneybrook West CDD is approximately 645 acres situated within the 936-acre development of Stoneybrook West and is located entirely within the City of Winter Garden. The development is located generally east and south of Avalon Road (C.R. 545), west of Black Lake, and approximately 1/4 mile north of Tilden Road.

The purpose of the District is to construct, operate, and maintain infrastructure to support the community, including roads, stormwater management, street lighting, irrigation, and landscape.

Maintenance provided by the City of Winter Garden for non-gated portions of Stoneybrook West:

  • Sweeping streets
  • Cleaning catch basins
  • Labeling storm drains
  • Controlling construction site erosion
  • Inspecting the storm sewer system to find and eliminate pollution sources (on an as-needed basis)
  • Distributing educational materials to the public (available at City Hall)

Governing Board

Stoneybrook West CDD is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors (the “Board”), and they encourage the public to attend their meetings to learn more about the community and to see local government at work.
