Richmond Place is a residential, deed-restricted community of moderately priced homes, with two associated apartment/condominium complexes. We are located in North-east Tampa/Hillsborough County near the Pasco County line. The area is popularly referred to as “New Tampa” and is adjacent to the communities of Tampa Palms and Wesley Chapel. We’re conveniently located within a short driving distance to area Shopping Centers, major and locally-owned Restaurants, Grocery Stores and Markets, as well as major Medical, Research and Educational institutions.
Residents of our community are a culturally diverse group of people representing all the geographical areas of the United States as well as many different parts of the world. The professions, ages and interests of the residents are as diverse as their cultures. All enjoy the advantages of excellent schools, a community park with a pool and playground, picnic areas, barbecue grills, and tennis and basketball courts.
The development of Richmond Place is designed so that the majority of Homes are located overlooking a pond or preservation areas home to a wide range of Florida Wildlife. The community is made up of several subdivisions, Apartment Homes and Condominiums.
[ Our History ]
Since the transition in 2004 of the CDD Board from the developer to the residents, the CDD accomplishments include:
1. Virtually eliminating vandalism in the Community Club area by installation of a state of the art, live monitored security system.
2. Maintaining the Community Center and the entry monuments to a level of excellence that makes them a showplace for the community and enhances property values.
This includes adding new playground equipment, new pool equipment and pool furniture, new water fountain, new signage, new paint on the fencing, constant sand replenishment in volleyball court, and annual holiday lighting.
3. Hiring OLM, a landscape management company, who inspects and evaluates the CDD property monthly to evaluate the performance of the area’s landscaping company relative to its written contract. A detailed checklist of deficiencies is prepared and delivered along with an achievement score. Monthly payment to the landscaper depends on the rating achieved. This system has resulted in major improvements in the quality of the CDD’s landscaping.
4. Maintaining street lighting, ponds and storm runoff.
5. Meeting all auditing and engineering requirements and guidelines.
6. Verifying that all area bonds are paid on time so that they will terminate as planned in 2018.
