About Urban Orlando CDD
The Urban Orlando Community Development District (“District”) is an independent local unit of special-purpose government created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and established by Ordinance 32524, adopted of the Board of County Commissioners of Orange County, Florida which became effective on December 6th, 1999.
The District currently encompasses approximately nine hundred and ninety eight (998.816) acres of land located entirely within Orange County, Florida. As a local unit of special-purpose government, the District provides an alternative means for planning, financing, constructing, operating and maintaining various public improvements and community facilities within its jurisdiction.
The Urban Orlando CDD is organized similar to other local governments in Florida, in that the legislative body is composed of a five-member board known as the Board of Supervisors. The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Administrator and District Counsel. Staff members operate utilizing the same formalities as a County Administrator and County Attorney. The Board, through review of advertised Requests for Qualifications, ranks and selects a District Engineer to perform the engineering needs of the District. District Administration staff and the District Attorney administer the operations of the District and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.
The Urban Orlando operates within the ethics provisions as outlined by the Florida Commission on Ethics.
