ABOUT THE COUNCIL

The Council of Fort Lauderdale Civic Associations is a strong organization made up of dues paying qualified civic and homeowners associations in our City. Each Member Association sends a representative to participate on the Council. Meetings are held monthly at City Hall every second Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Commission Conference Room. Everyone is welcome.

CFLCA addresses the issues and concerns of the Membership, as well as provides informative speakers on important City and County topics. Members participate on committees that tackle the pressing issues facing our City. Recommendations are brought to the City Commission and the City Manager with the hope of directing them in ways that ensure the needs, prosperity and health of all our Member Associations. Won't you please join us at our upcoming meeting?

Proposed Ordinance for Medical Marijuana Dispensories

As mentioned at the April Council Meeting this week, we are posting the full text of the proposed ordinance regulating medical marijuana dispensories.

What you will see in the draft ordinance is that it looks pretty much like what we discussed  at the March Council Meeting—so, no surprises.  

It goes to P&Z next week and then off to Commission in early May.  Of course, it could be amended a bit by the time it gets through Commission.

We’ll be watching it closely.

Attached you will find the draft of the proposed Medical Cannabis Dispensing Facility Ordinance for the City of Fort Lauderdale along with the corresponding GIS map. This item is set to appear in front of the Planning and Zoning Board on Tuesday April 18th in the City Commission Chambers at 100 N Andrews Avenue. The meeting begins at 6:30 PM and will be heard as soon as the other planning items are completed. A copy of the April PZB agenda is also attached.

There will also be another open house at the Sustainable Development Department on Monday April 24th from 4 PM to 6 PM to discuss the recommendations. It is anticipated that the item will be heard by the City Commission at the May 5th and May 16th meeting dates.
