Forest Lake Community Development District

Est. 2019 Located In Polk, Florida

Please be advised that amendment towing policies in the Forest Lake CDD will be implemented starting July 31, 2023. Policies and map can be found HERE.

The Forest Lake Development District is a local, special purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended and created by ordinance of 19-071 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.

For more Information regarding the CDD, Please contact the Governmental Management Services:
