About Griffin Lakes CDD

The Griffin Lakes 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 2002-028, adopted by the City Commission of the City of Dania Beach, Florida which became effective on May 28, 2002.

The Griffin Lakes CDD is organized similar to other local governments in Florida, in that the legislative body is composed of a five-member board known as the Board of Supervisors. The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Administrator and District Counsel. Staff members operate utilizing the same formalities as a County Administrator and County Attorney. The Board, through review of advertised Requests for Qualifications, ranks and selects a District Engineer to perform the engineering needs of the District. District Administration staff and the District Attorney administer the operations of the District and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.

The Griffin Lakes CDD operates within the ethics provisions as outlined by the Florida Commission on Ethics.
