Gateway Services District is managed by a team who specializes in Customer Care, Operations, Project Management, utilities and maintenance. They keep the water flowing, maintain the recreation areas, keep the pool safe and clean and take care of all of the Districts needs. Many think about our District being similar to that of small city or county, this will give you an idea of the scope of management responsibilities of our team.
There are several benefits, one is the CDD complements the responsibilities of community homeowner’s associations (HOAs). Another benefit is the CDD provides landowners consistently high levels of public facilities and services managed and financed through self-imposed fees and assessments. The CDD also ensures that these community development facilities and services will be completed concurrently with other parts of the development.
