Welcome to the official website for the Summit at Fern Hill Community Development District (CDD). This site is funded on behalf of the Community Development District in an effort to help educate the general public about the services provided by the District and to highlight the other agencies involved in the day-to-day Operations of the community.

Update on Community Pool

The current guidelines from the CDD insurance company in accordance with the CDC guidelines include:

  • Limited capacity up to 50%
  • Onsite staff must be present during hours of operation
  • Cleaning must occur every 2-3 hours
  • All social distancing guidelines must be followed
  • Proper signage concerning Covid-19 should be posted

As everyone is aware the current pandemic was unforeseen, and therefore items concerning the reopening of the pool were not included in this year’s budget. As soon as there is a change to current guidelines and an update is available, it will be posted to the website.

Amenity Center/Recreational Facilities Are Closed

In an effort to minimize the risk of contracting the virus and consistent with federal, state, and local guidelines, the District has made the decision to close all recreational facilities and suspend all recreational programs effective immediately and until further notice. The District will notify you of any change to operations on the District website and will continue to make decisions based on governmental recommendations, which may and have changed rapidly.

While we recognize the disruption is less than ideal, the health and safety of District residents, guests, and on-site staff is of utmost importance. Please continue to monitor the District’s website for further updates. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we all work together in this unprecedented time.

Meritus Office Update

Due to the impact of the coronavirus, Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties have issued a stay at home order. This means that our offices will be closed to the public during this period. We will still be providing services remotely so you can still reach us by phone or email, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Please understand that this order will affect vendors and suppliers as well and certain services may either be delayed or unavailable. Meritus will do everything in our power to keep providing services to your community and we are here with you during this difficult time. We look forward to getting through this safe and healthy and wish you and your loved ones the best.
