CDD        > website link
The Palma Sola Trace Community Development District (“District”) is an independent local unit of, special-purpose government, created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, and established by Ordinance 2763, adopted of the City Council of the city of Bradenton, Florida which became effective on August 22nd, 2004.

The District currently encompasses approximately one hundred four (104.395) acres of land located entirely within Manatee County, Florida.

The CDD is generally responsible for the ponds, street lights, bridge, perimeter wall and the emergency gates (individual and vehicle).  If you have a street light that is out, check the light number on the pole and use the contact form on their website to notify them.

Master Association  > website link
The Master Association provides the guidelines for owners within the community.    Additionally,  the Master Association is responsible for the Common Areas less what the CDD is responsible for. The Master Association is responsible for the swimming pool, clubhouse, etc. and all landscaping other than villa and condo areas.

Villas HOA

Single Family Residences  > website link
