Property Owners Associations
Cypress Village Property Owner Association
Cypress Village of Sugarmill Woods is a Deed Restricted Community within the Sugarmill Woods (SMW) community.

The Cypress Village Board of Directors is responsible for enforcement of deed restrictions, including architectural control. They are also responsible to preserve, protect, and maintain the Greenbelt common areas, provide and supervise nighttime security, and maintain liaison with Citrus County agencies on issues affecting Cypress Village.
A Community Management Company and a Licensed Community Manager (LCAM) with Board oversight run the day-to-day operation of the Association.
Oak Village Property Owner Association
The Oak Village Board of Directors is glad to welcome all current and potential new property owners and homeowners. While there are a number of relatively new areas most of Oak Village is a well-developed community.
Oak Village is a Deed Restricted Community with enough reasonable rules to protect property values, but not so restrictive as to interfere with the rights of its property owners and residents. The annual homeowner fees are $135.00.
The rural feel of Sugarmill Woods has been drawing new residents for many years. The feel of Old Florida with the Natural Springs, Rivers, and Gulf waters are all within a very short drive.

In Citrus County, and especially in Sugarmill Woods, we are very fortunate to have a first class Sheriff’s Office. Besides deputies patrolling Sugarmill Woods, the Sheriff's Office manages and trains uniformed volunteer citizens for the Crime Watch patrol. This watch patrol utilizes marked county vehicles with 2-way communication with Sheriff’s dispatchers. Sugarmill Woods Property Owners Associations provide nightly patrols as an additional safety measure for our neighborhoods. Another feature in the Sugarmill Woods neighborhood is a fulltime career-staffed firehouse providing fire protection and EMS services.
