Sugarmill Woods Civic Association Membership

In 1980, some of the early residents of Sugarmill Woods formed an organization to represent the residents of what was then only Cypress Village. As the development community grew and expanded into additional villages, the original organization evolved into what is now the Sugarmill Woods Civic Association.

The Civic Association stands apart from the three major Property Owners Associations: Cypress Village, Oak Village, and Southern Woods.

In its simplest form, the three Property Owner's Associations focus on and address the issues and concerns internal to the community of residents: Architectural, Deed Restrictions and Enforcement, Greenbelt and Common areas, and Security.

The Civic Association concentrates on the external factors that affect residents: utility rates, water availability, county, school board and state issues. Its volunteer Board members have spent countless hours attending meetings in and outside the County, in financing legal and lobbying support, and researching such matters as Greenbelt preservation, and noise-abatement from the proposed Suncoast 2 Parkway extension.

The Civic Association publishes the annual Sugarmill Woods Directory of Residents (telephone directory) and periodic Sugarmill Woods Bulletins, and sponsors Community Outreach Program meetings. The Civic Association maintains a private e-mail data base of its membership to keep residents informed of important issues and concerns and significant events. This new web site is the Civic Association’s latest service to the residents of Sugarmill Woods.

Membership in the Civic Association is voluntary. The annual dues are only $15.00 per household. A copy of the Civic Association Membership Application / Renewal Form is available in the front of the Sugarmill Woods Directory of Residents (telephone directory).
