Lake Ashton Community Development District

Est. 2005 Located In Lake Wales, Florida

The Lake Ashton Community Development District is a local, special purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended, and created by Ordinance 2000-11 of the City of Lake Wales 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.
