About Us

The Sugarmill Woods Civic Association, Inc. is a 501(c) (4) non-profit (Civic League and Social Welfare) organization. The Civic Association is governed by a set of Articles of Incorporation and a set of Bylaws which are accessible via our web site.

In late 1979, the layout of Cypress Village was complete and nearly 400 homes were built. About the same time, a group of residents began to discuss the creation of the homeowners association to interact with the developer, Punta Gorda Developers, Inc. (PGDI), the county, other governmental agencies, and the utility companies. The end result of these meetings was the establishment of the Cypress Village Association. The Association was incorporated and chartered as a not-for-profit entity on July 30, 1980 (Charter No. 753499). Over a period of about 15 years the organization changed names to reflect changes in the community and the establishment of the Village Property Owners Associations. On January 11, 1995, the members voted to change its official name to The Sugarmill Woods Civic Association, Inc. which remains its current name.

The Sugarmill Woods Civic Association is an organization dedicated to the conduct of activities that benefit everyone living in the community. On behalf of the residents, the Association:

  • Promotes the maintenance of the desirable features of a residential community
  • Enhances the health, welfare, security, and other community services through information and voluntary activities
  • Monitors water, phone and electric utilities for rates and service compliance
  • Represents the community's interests before the Board of County Commissioners
  • Observes zoning proposals and construction activity in the general area
  • Works with legislators and other state officials to enact beneficial legislation
  • Sponsors Community Outreach Program meetings each month to enhance the knowledge and involvement of our residents in the community and Citrus County
  • Publishes Newsletters, E-mail Bulletins and the annual Sugarmill Woods Telephone Directory to keep residents informed.
