Who owns the retention areas in the City of Apopka?

The vast majority of retention ponds that are found within developments are owned and their upkeep and maintenance are the responsibility of the Home Owners Association (HOA).  There are a few where the City has the responsibility for the maintenance and this is generally due to the City directly building or widening the roadway.  

In other cases where the HOA has defaulted, Neighborhood Improvement Municipal Service Benefit Units (MSBU) are created for the maintenance and upkeep of the retention pond, street lighting and upkeep of other properties that the HOA would have been responsible to maintain based on their development documents.
