Tuscawilla is a 3500 acre Planned Unit Development community located in Winter Springs, Florida. It is one of the oldest and largest planned communities in Seminole County. Originating in 1969 the community is home to more than 11,000 residents and 28 different communities from condos, villas, and townhomes, as well as small to large single family and estate homes all of which comprise the Tuscawilla Country Club Community.
Tuscawilla is a diverse and family-friendly community with two parks, the Bear Creek Nature Trail, the Cross Seminole Trail, a full-service Country Club and A-rated schools! Downtown Orlando is a convenient twenty minutes away by the Greeneway (State Road 417), a high-speed toll road with entrances adjacent to Tuscawilla.
In 1977 the Tuscawilla Homeowners Association (THOA) was incorporated to maintain and improve the 3500 acre community. The THOA represents the residents regarding issues which transcend the individual HOAs.
The THOA spearheaded the Tuscawilla Beautification District. This effort resulted in the following:
· An expanded grand entrance with fountains at the intersection of Winter Springs Boulevard and Tuskawilla Road.
· Upgraded streetlights and signage along Winter Springs Boulevard and the Northern Way Circle.
· Enhanced entrance signs at the other gateways to the PUD.
· Trees, foliage and ground covers in the median along Winter Springs Boulevard.
This work was/is paid for by a special property tax supplement for Tuscawilla residents. Allresidents of Tuscawilla are eligible to become members of the THOA. A yearly membership fee is required.
The THOA also publishes a periodical that presents topics of interest to the community.
