The Sampson Creek Community Development District Staff continues to monitor local, sate and federal communications, guidelines, recommendations and advisories regarding COVID-19.
As you are likely aware, many local and state government facilities and programs have been closed. In an effort to minimize the risk of contracting the virus, and consistent with federal, state, and local guidelines, the District has made the decision to close all recreational facilities and suspend all recreational programs effective immediately and until further notice. The District will notify you of any change to operations and will continue to make decisions based on governmental recommendations, which may and have changed rapidly.
While we recognize the disruption is less than ideal, the health and safety of District residents, guests and on-site staff is of utmost importance. Please continue to monitor the District’s website at www.stjohnsgcc.org and your email for further updates regarding District facilities and programs. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all work together in the unprecedented time.
Family Dinner & BINGO
Due to COVID-19, we have decided to cancel Family Dinner Night and BINGO until further notice. We have not come to this decision lightly, but feel that based on the recommendations of the CDC, World Health Organization, and the Govenor that it is best for the safety of our staff and guests.
We will be sure to notify everyone when we feel it is safe to resume these events.
To all Residents of St Johns Golf and Country Club
(Sampson Creek Community Development District aka SCCDD)
I would like to take the opportunity to give you a brief overview of the upcoming
road resurfacing project (the “Project”) that will commence soon and will take
several months to complete. It is estimated by the contractor for the Project,
Duval Asphalt, that the entire Project will be ongoing for approximately 90 days
from start to finish.
The following steps have been completed:
➢ The decision to repave the roads and do all the roads at one time.
➢ The decision as to how to finance the project has been completed.
Specifically, on February 21, 2020, the SCCDD issued $2,520,000 in bonds
at an average rate of 2.56%.
➢ A contract has been awarded to Duval Asphalt to complete the Project.
➢ An arborist has been consulted regarding the Project and there are only
eight trees that need to be removed and replaced. Notification to the
individual property owners will be made on or about March 1, 2020
It is anticipated that there will be excess funds from the issuance of the bonds
which can be used to improve other aspects of our community at a later date.
The Board of Supervisors has committed that the Project will be fully funded
before any other funds are designated.
➢ Create a drop-down box on the www.stjohnsgcc.org to host all information
regarding this project including timelines and notices
➢ Post a living map of the roads as they are scheduled to be resurfaced
➢ Publish a map and schedule of curbing that needs to be replaced.
➢ As commencement date approaches “blast” to residents will be made as
reminders. This blast will include reminders of “do’s and don’ts” that
should be conformed to.
It the desire of both the Board, Staff and contractor to make this Project as
painless as possible. Please continue to look for upcoming and ongoing

Socially Distant Community Easter Egg Hunt
I saw some other communities doing this and thought this would be a great idea for SJGCC!
Put a large Easter Egg in your windows by April 9th.
