At the intersection of Old Hillsborough Avenue and Running Horse Road in Seffner, Florida.
In 1988 the HHSDTD was formed by an adopting ordnance. There was a need for a body of people to manage the maintenance of the common areas. Today, this same organization exists and although the names of the Trustees have changed, they have the same goals and community spirit.
HHSDTD is a government agency with Trustees who are elected officials serving a 4 year term. A Trustee serves in a responsible position with regulations and guidelines they must abide by. Anyone who lives in Hickory Hill and is a registered voter can put themselves forward at election time, to serve on a seat due to be vacated. If a seat becomes vacant between elections, interested residents can present themselves at a board meeting and be voted onto the board by the other Trustees.
Trustees meet on a monthly basis, (more if required), and make decisions about the common areas of Hickory Hill.
Who pays for all this?
The simple answer is you do. The tax is listed in the Non-Ad-Valorem Assessments section of your tax statement. Currently you pay $108.00 a year, no matter the value of your property. The tax dollars collected then go back to HHSDTD and they use it to maintain the common areas.
To make the Hickory Hill community a desirable place for home ownership by beautifying and protecting the community's common areas, while being responsible stewards of our constituent's tax dollars.

September 10, 2019 - Property Owner's will be receiving a letter from the District soon. It is about the District submitting an "unaudited" financial statement for the FY19 year. The reason for the letter is in January, the District was notified by the accounting firm that has been doing the audit for some years; raised the price from $1,300 to $2,000. Hillsborough County ordinance and Florida statutes allows any district with current year revenues less than $50,000 is not required to have its financial statement audited, but is encouraged to have the statement audited. At the Regular Monthly Meeting of January 8, 2019, the Trustees voted to submit an unaudited financial statement, i.e. "a compilation". When doing so, the District is required to notify the property owners. This letter is part of the requirements for submitting the compilation. The District revenue in FY19 is $12,960. The District has secured the assistance of a CPA to guide us through the compilation process.
The FY 20 Public Budget Hearing took place on June 11, 2019 at 6:30 PM. The proposed budget was modified and approved by the board of Trustees. If our budget is approved by Hillsborough County, the 2019 Assessment will be $108.00 per residential property (181).
