Basic Information

Background

 The Big Cypress Stewardship District (“District”) is an independent special district, created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 2004-423, Laws of Florida, Acts of 2004, and established by the Florida House of Representatives’ approval of House Bill No. 923 on June 17, 2004.  The District includes within its boundaries approximately 22,211 acres of land located in unincorporated eastern Collier County.

District Infrastructure and Property

The District has not yet raised funding to install its planned public infrastructure improvements nor does it own any real property.

District Annual Budgets 

The District annually approves an Operations and Maintenance “O&M” budget which outlines the expected general revenues and expenses for the District.  There is no annual debt service budget since the District has yet to issue any indebtedness.

District Annual Non-Ad Valorem Assessments

The District is currently being funded by the Landowner.

Florida Law requires that the District publish an annual meeting schedule for the fiscal year one time in a newspaper of general circulation in Collier County.  The Board may decide to cancel or reschedule any of its meetings, or add meetings or workshops as items of business dictate. These new meetings will be advertised in the newspaper at least seven (7) days in advance, and agendas are available on the website a week prior to the meeting.
