About the District

The Bluewaters Community Development District (the “District”) is a local unit of special-purpose government of the State of Florida established in accordance with the Uniform Community Development District Act of 1980, Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, as amended and by Ordinance No. 04-73 of the Board of County Commissioners of Miami Dade County, Florida (the “County”), effective April 23, 2004. The District lands consist of approximately 80 gross acres located entirely within the unincorporated area of the County and were developed by Lucky Start at Bluewaters, LLC as a residential community which contains 246 single family residential units and 230 townhome units. The District is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors (qualified electors) elected during the general election process by qualified electors of the District. The District issued Special Assessment Bonds, Series 2004 (the “Bonds”) and has imposed taxes and/or assessments on all assessable property to pay off the Bonds issued for the installation and construction of  public infrastructure (capital) improvements. In 2014 the District refinanced the Bonds to reduce interest and pass on a portion of the savings to the property owners. The Special Assessment Refunding Bonds, Series 2014 (the “2014 Bonds”) will mature May 1, 2035.  All property owners within the District are subject to annual special assessments which are broken down into two (2) components:

  1. The operation and management of the improvements.
  2. Bond debt service (annual principal and interest) on the 2014 Bonds.

The District uses the Miami-Dade County Tax Collector to collect the assessments each year. The special assessments appear under the non-ad valorem tax section of the real estate property tax bill. The District’s fiscal year runs from October 1 thru September 30 of each respective year.

Attention: Effective February 1, 2018, vehicles that are in violation of the Parking Rules, are subject to being towed at the vehicle owner’s expense by a towing contractor approved by the Bluewaters Community Development District (the “District”). To avoid vehicle owner towing related fees, the District encourages residents, family members, guests, and visitors to abide by all Parking Rules.
