The Village Community Development District No. 15 (the "District") is considering the issuance of approximately $140 million* of tax-exempt fixed-rate Special Assessment Revenue Bonds, Series 2023 (the "Bonds").
The Bonds are preliminarily expected to be priced and be sold during the week of June 19, 2023* with Jefferies LLC serving as the senior managing underwriter and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. serving as co-manager.
If issued, proceeds of the Bonds will be used to (i) pay a portion of the costs of constructing and/or acquiring certain public infrastructure and other public improvements associated with the first phase ("Phase I") of the residential development planned for within the boundaries of the District; (ii) pay capitalized interest on the Bonds through May 1, 2024*; (iii) fund the Series 2023 Reserve Account of the Reserve Fund for the Bonds in an amount equal to the initial Series 2023 Reserve Requirement; and (iv) pay costs of issuance of the Bonds.
The authorization of the Bonds is subject to approval by the Board of Supervisors of the District (the "Board") on April 13, 2023*. The sale of the Bonds is also subject to approval by the Chairman and the District Manager, pursuant to authority delegated to them by the Board. Closing of the transaction is also subject to market conditions at the time of issuance.
The payment of principal of and interest on the Bonds will be secured primarily by a pledge of, and lien on, the revenues derived by the District from the special assessments levied on certain assessable residential units in Phase I of the portion of The Villages development within the District. The size, timing and structure of the anticipated transaction are subject to market conditions. The District reserves the right to change the timing and size of the sale or not to issue the Bonds, if to do so would serve the interests of the District.
