What We Do

What Does the Key Marco Community Development District Do?

Key Marco Community Development District is a local, special-purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended, and established by the Collier County Board of County Commissioners on October 27, 1992 by adoption of Collier County Ordinance No. 92-45.

CDD organization

The Key Marco Community Development District organization is similar to other local governments in Florida. Its five-member Board of Supervisors, who must be, at least 18 years of age who is citizen of the United States, a legal resident of Florida and the district, and who registers to vote with the supervisor of elections in the Collier County in which district land is located and, are elected at a General Election by the residents of Key Marco and hold four-year terms. The Supervisors, who are public officials, have staggered terms. Therefore, every two years either two or three Supervisors are elected. Any vacancies occurring before the General Election, are filled through appointment by the Board.

The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Manager and District Counsel. The powers of CDDs, like other special taxing districts, are limited solely to the provision of infrastructure and services for master planned developments and they must abide by Florida ethics laws.
