Amenities & Recreation Manager
The Sampson Creek Board of Supervisors encourages all residents to fully utilize the CDD owned amenities that are provided in the community. We welcome all families to attend the special events and celebrations that are put on throughout the year. If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments, please contact Leah Tincher, Art of Living Director. Her office is located in the Swim Club and her phone number is 599-9093.
Did you know that most lake front properties in our neighborhood actually have their property lines extended into the middle of the lake? That means that the lake banks, for the most part, are private property with appropriate drainage easements, as required. Easements through residential backyards along the community’s storm water lake system are for maintenance purposes only and residents are not granted fishing (or any other purpose) access to other residents’ backyards via these maintenance easements. Unless individual property owners grant permission for others to access their backyards, entering their private property can be considered trespassing. Please be considerate of the privacy rights of other residents.
Our CDD controls all of our common areas and amenities. This includes the swim club, fitness room, tennis courts, playground area, soccer field and basketball courts. Also falling under the authority of the CDD are the roads within the neighborhood (with the exception of Leo Maguire, which is a County road), including the landscape maintenance as well as maintenance of the decorative street lights at our entrances. Additionally, the CDD is responsible for the maintenance of our ponds and our security patrol.
Full Legal Name: Sampson Creek Community Development District
Public Purpose: The Sampson Creek Community Development District is a local, special purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended, and created by Rule as an alternative method of planning, acquiring, operating and maintaining community-wide improvements in planned communities. A CDD provides the “solution” to Florida’s need to provide valuable community infrastructure generated by growth, ultimately without overburdening other governments and their taxpaying residents. Community Development Districts represent a major advancement in Florida’s effort to manage its growth effectively and efficiently. This allows a developer to establish higher construction standards, meanwhile providing a long-term solution to the operation and maintenance of the community’s facilities. The Sampson Creek CDD has been granted those general powers defined in Section 190.011, Florida Statutes, as well as those special powers defined in Section 190.012(1) and (2)(a), (d), and (e), Florida Statutes, all as more particularly described in the St. Johns County Ordinance.
