CDD & HOA: What’s the Difference?
We have many new homeowners’ in Spring Ridge and being new to a community that has both a Homeowners Association and a Community Development District can be confusing.
Here is a brief explanation of the differences.
CDD stands for Community Development District. CDD’S are a local, special purpose government authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes that constructs, operates and maintains the community’s infrastructure.
Sandra Manuele is the Field and Clubhouse Manager for the Spring Ridge Community Development District. She manages the daily operations for the District including all of the amenities, entrance gates, roads, landscape, common areas, projects, events, and is also the Webmaster for www.springridgebrooksville.com. She works directly for the District and has been with Spring Ridge since 2006. Any questions or complaints in regard to common areas, roads, street lights, street signs, gate repairs, gate remotes, gate codes, clubhouse, pool, pool access basketball court, and playground should be referred to the clubhouse by emailing email@example.com or by calling 352-597-0605.
HOA stands for Homeowners’ Association. HOA’s operate under Chapter 720 of the Florida State Statutes. Their purpose is to enforce the rules for the properties in its jurisdiction in order to maintain the property value of the residents, create a sense of community and preserve the architectural integrity of the neighborhood.
Richard Ort is the Community Association Manager for Spring Ridge of Hernando Homeowners’ Association. He works for Qualified Property Management who has been the HOA management company since 2013.
