Finley Woods Community Development District
Est. 2019 Located In Alachua County, Florida
The Finley Woods Community Development District (“District”) is a community development district, created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and established by the City of Gainesville, Florida’s City Commission approval of Ordinance No. 180972 on August 1, 2019. The District includes within its boundaries approximately 85 acres.
District Infrastructure and Property
The District intends to issue its Series 2020 Bonds (“Bonds”) to fund the construction and/or acquisition of stormwater management improvements, landscaping, utilities improvements, and roadway improvements.
District Annual Budgets
The District will annually approve both a Series 2020 Bonds debt service budget and an operations and maintenance “O&M” budget. The Series 2020 Bonds require level annual debt service and so the bond debt service budget will not vary substantially from year-to-year.
District annual Non-Ad Valorem Assessments
The District annually collects from property owners within its boundaries both a bond debt service assessment and an O&M assessment. The bond debt service assessment helps amortize the District’s Series 2020 Bonds. The O&M assessment funds the District’s annual O&M activities.

Levels of service of program operations within the District are directly related to the annual operating budget. Program services include:
- Community appearance
- Recreational facilities
- Street lighting
- Infrastructure administration
During the fiscal year staff monitors the budget to maintain operational efficiency. During the annual budget process staff reviews what was budgeted against what was actually spent, and recommends increases and decreases in service levels. The Board of Supervisors, with input from the public, reviews staff’s proposals and has the final decision for the budget constraints that will determine the levels of service. The budget process typically begins in the spring and concludes in the summer, after a public hearing to ensure resident participation. Staff actions are directly related to those restrictions placed within the annual operations and maintenance budget for each fiscal year.
The District Manager’s responsibilities include:
- Mandatory – This service is required either by regulatory permit or other specific requirements.
- Essential – Those program services funded above the mandatory level and considered important to the residents.
- Discretionary – Those services funded and which can be reviewed for sufficiency, based on service commitment by the community and the cost of the service being provided.
