The Capital Region Community Development District (CDD) serves Southwood by operating and maintaining public spaces and making community-wide improvements. The CDD is a local special purpose government entity authorized by Florida Statutes, Ch. 190.
Improvements that have been financed and constructed by the CDD include roadways, stormwater management facilities, open spaces and recreational areas – with the exceptions of the pool and golf course. The CDD owns and continues to maintain the community’s alleyways, and stormwater management facilities, as well as the open spaces and recreational areas. While the CDD built many of the roadways in Southwood, most are now owned and maintained by the City of Tallahassee.
The CDD’s governing body is a five-member Board of Supervisors. The Board establishes the district’s policy in accordance with Florida law. Staff members administer the operations of the district and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.
