The Avelar Creek Community Development District has a Board-Manager form of government with the Board formulating public policy and the Manager carrying it out. The Board is bound by law to hire a District Manager and District Counsel to serve the operational duties of the Board. The Board consists of five members called Supervisors. The Board serves as the governing body of the district and sets public policies implemented by staff. Commencing six years after the initial appointment of Supervisors and once the District attains a minimum of two hundred and fifty qualified electors, the ‘qualified electoral’ status is transferred from landowner to district resident who must be a U.S Citizen. After their terms expire, all Board of Supervisor members must be qualified electors and will be elected by qualified electors to serve a four year term.
