Just a quick tidbit on the Nocatee CDD. As someone who works for the master Developer I can tell you that the CDD in Nocatee is far from $14,000 per year. Tragically rumors spread and all we can do is get the correct info out there in the hopes that it to will spread too but sadly bad news spread faster than good. The Nocatee CDD varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. From within the neighborhoods it also varies according to lot size. That being said in Austin Park the CDD is between $1300 and $1400 annually for the Capital assessment (which is a 15 year assessment) and $425 annually for the Operations and Maintenance (O&M).
The developer is not transferring all of the debt for the infrastructure to the buyer thru pre-construction sales as we do not sell homes we develop land - considering Nocatee Parkway at completion will be a $130 Million roadway and the Water Park which opens this coming spring is a $30 Million amenity the fees would be astromonical if we tried to pass that $ amount to the buyer, not that we can. There is no fear that the infrastructure will not as it will be complete by spring 2010 come by one of our many events and check out the progress for yourself. Hope the info helps clear things up.

Actually the CDD is not a bad deal if you use the amenities. Now if you are on a fixed income and don't use the amenities like swimming, tennis and golf you need to stay away from the CDD community. The post that said $1200 per month is wrong. They meant $1200 per year plus your county property tax. What would you pay to join a country club, gym or swim and tennis club per month?

I guess there's a natural confluence between keeping the riff-raff out and sucking the idiots in.

Best laugh I've had all day! Well put!

I wish I lived in an area with as much crime and urban blight -I mean soul- as areas like Mandarin and downtown Jax.

that is one of the reasons we bought in oakleaf. at first we looked elsewhere avoiding cdd neighborhoods, but then when I factored in joining a gym, a pool, golf, tennis etc it made more sense to just move in where it is.

it's not a perfect neighborhood, but we really like it.

I live in Mandarin and have no problem with crime or urban blight. Why must you denigrate an area of Jacksonville? I do not appreciate it.
Didn't your mother ever teach you that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all?

JagFan, I wouldn't worry about this guy. By now we are all used to his spewing insults and nobody ever takes him serious.

There's at least one like him on every forum.

I have friends who live in Mandarin and they would agree with you also.

cricketfan is his usual cricket brained self I see. I was responding to an insult hurled at anyone who chooses to live in a cdd community. Calling people idiots is not exactly a respectful way to make a point now is it? Now as to who I would take seriously , a fan of cricket ( or crickets ) ( OK Budy Holly and the Crickets were good, I'll give you that) is one I would think twice about.

A cricket match actually got the prime ministers of Pakistan and India to sit next to one another last night for the first time in ages. Thought that was pretty cool.
