Citrus Springs is platted for 35,000 lots with about 32,000 set aside for residential use and developed lots are served by a central water system. Other zoning includes commercial, churches, hospital and medical, and parks and recreation. The population here should eventually rise to about 100,000 people. The current population is estimated at about 7,000+. Citrus Springs would be considered a mixed demographic middle class community. While it was started with retirees, there are now many families here. We have two elementary schools and a middle school, and future plans for a high school to be constructed on a site that Citrus County has selected right near the middle school. Each school has about a thousand pupils. Among its amenities, Citrus Springs has a Memorial Library, two 18 hole golf courses - nationally acclaimed El Diablo Golf Course and Citrus Springs Golf & Country Club (fees apply - membership not required), public tennis Courts, baseball field, parks, playgrounds, a 2 million dollar Community Center, numerous clubs and activities, and the Withalacoochee State Trail - start of 46 mile paved trail for walking, jogging and biking.

The Sunny Hills Community was platted in 1971 and 1972 as a community for about 60,000 residents on 24,301 residential lots. Its land area is about 28 square miles (17,743 acres) and is almost 5% of the land area in Washington County. With 220 miles of roads, it has 55% of all the paved roads in the county. Currently there are 619 homes in the Community and about 1,200 people. In the master plan there are 3,829 acres of greenbelts and natural preserves, about 400 acres for commercial development, as well as provisions for churches, schools, and parks. Currently, the Sunny Hills Golf & Country Club operates an 18-hole highly acclaimed golf course.
Sunny Hills Community is the largest platted subdivision in Florida's Great Northwest, and we believe it has a great future considering the economic development occurring just to the south with the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, the commencement of expanded airline connections into major hubs by Southwest Airlines to Houston, Orlando, Baltimore, and Nashville, in addition to the existing connections to Atlanta, Dallas, and Memphis by Delta Airlines. You can be anywhere in the U.S. within 1-day of travel.
