Welcome to Water's Edge CDD
Your Community Information Resource from Your Board of Supervisors.
Welcome to the official website for the Water’s Edge Community Development District (the “District”). This website is funded on behalf of the District to serve two major purposes. The first is to comply with Chapter 189.069 of the Florida Statutes, which requires each special District to maintain an official website. The second is an effort to help educate the general public about the services provided by the District, and to highlight the other agencies involved in the day-to-day operations of the community. These agencies include but are not limited to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Manatee County and the Water's Edge Homeowner Association.
After review of the guidelines issued by the CDC, state and local health departments, and other public officials, the District Manager, District Counsel, and Chair of the District's Board of Supervisors consulted and made the decision to close the amenity facilities. This decision was supported by input from the District's insurance carrier, which advised that keeping the facilities open against official guidance could have implications for the District's insurance coverage.
A state of emergency has been declared for Florida and Manatee County has declared a local state of emergency. Schools, courts, and local governments across the state, including in Manatee County, are taking precautionary steps of suspending services and programs and/or closing facilities in order to protect the public. Recent guidance recommends that the public avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people and that in states with evidence of community transmission, bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms, and other indoor and outdoor venues where groups of people congregate should be closed. Governor DeSantis has recently announced limitations on the operation of restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in Florida.
Executive Order 20-52 authorizes political subdivisions to waive typical procedures and formalities pertaining to performance of public work and taking whatever prudent action is necessary to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the community. Given the seriousness of the situation and the importance of acting in a timely manner to protect the health, safety, and welfare of District residents and guests, the decision to close amenity facilities was made outside of the District’s regularly scheduled meeting.
The health and safety of District residents, guests, and staff remain our top priority. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping the community safe.
The playground will be closed for repairs until further notice.
