Interesting article in paper about the community Development districts having gated community. They apparently cannot stop the public from entering legally because tax money puts in the roads in the subs.

Here in Lakewood Ranch they are really upset. We decided "not' to live behind gates and pay a whole lot more in HOA and CDD fees. Never quite understood it. Yes, you have to go through a gate but the perimeter of the development has a 3 or 4 foot wood fence?

Floridasunshine,
I'm not positive but she might live in the Lexington development. I also have a Bruce Williams home. I'll have to check for sure but I think my HOA fee is 110.00 a year and CDD (paid with my taxes) is 1200.00 a year.
