The Toscana Isles Community Development District is a local, special-purpose government entity authorized by Chapter 190 of the Florida Statutes as amended, and established on December 10, 2013 by the City Council of the City of Venice, Florida, Ordinance No.2013-38, as an alternative method for managing and financing public infrastructure within master- planned community developments.

The Toscana Isles CDD encompasses an area of approximately 417.7 acres of land located entirely within the municipal boundaries of the City of Venice, Florida. The land within the District is generally located east of the Knights Trail Road, west of the Venetian Golf and River Club, north of Laurel Road and south of Gene Green Road. The public improvements of the District include clearing and earthwork, storm sewer, sanitary sewer, water mains, irrigation, entry, walls, buffers and landscape.

A Community Development District (CDD) provides the 'solution' to Florida's need to provide valuable community infrastructure generated by growth, ultimately without overburdening other governments and their taxpaying residents. CDDs represent a major advancement in Florida's effort to manage its growth effectively and efficiently. This allows a community to establish higher construction standards, meanwhile providing a long-term solution to the operation and maintenance of the community's facilities.
