Understanding the roles (and differences) of the Lake Padgett Estates Independent Special District (ISD) and the Lake Padgett Estates Civic Association in our community is important for all of our residents to know. We hope this short recap helps to provide you with a better understanding of our unique and wonderfully different from the rest community.
Parks and lake access is limited to LPE property owners and those listed on a annual rental agreement, and their guests only. Please know and abide by all ISD rules and regulations for use of our parks and recreation areas. The ISD is responsible for our parks and recreational areas. You can find more information under the Members Only tab located under Membership.
What you need to know to use and gain access to our parks:
What is the LPE ISD: A local unit of special-purpose government created in 2006 by the Florida Legislature under Florida law pursuant to the "Lake Padgett Estates Independent Special District Act" (HB 479 & SB1316 - 2006**), is responsible for maintaining, operating, and improving community recreational amenities and associated infrastructure and services within the District. The District does not serve, nor is it authorized to serve, as a Community Development District (CDD), civic association or a Homeowner Association (HOA). The District is not able to fund any activity that is not directly related to the parks. Please feel free to contact the District Management Company for more information. Prior to the formation of the ISD our lakes and recreational areas were managed early years by the Civic Association and later by the development of the MSTU. ** See below for historical information on SB 1316 and HB 479 that originally established the LPE Independent Special District in 2006.
Are you a LPE resident that needs to get your park gate access or decal? Want to reserve a cabana or just have questions? Contact the LPE Independent Special District for your parks & recreation needs or comments.
The Civic Association has been in existence since the ’70s, which is why it is not considered an HOA! The LPE subdivision was built before homeowner associations were defined in the State Legislature. In an effort to protect and preserve our parks and lakes, members of the Civic Association and the community helped form the Lake Padgett Estates Independent Special District through the Florida Legislature in 2006. The involvement of the Civic Association in this process is why many residents may not fully understand that the two organizations are completely separate entities and have separate functions.
The Lake Padgett Civic Association is and always has been a group of volunteers dedicated to improving our community and providing events that create good fellowship and harmony throughout our community. See the Document section for additional information on the Civic Association.
