ABOUT THE COUNCIL OF FORT LAUDERDALE CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS
“The Council of Fort Lauderdale Civic Associations” was formed in 1980. According to our Bylaws, the purpose of the Council is to “focus on the issues relating to preservation of the present and future welfare of the City of Fort Lauderdale and its neighborhoods and citizens, be proactive and reactive to those issues, communicate any recommendations to the proper authorities, strive to every improve communication and create a stronger partnership between City Government and the neighborhoods.”
CFLCA is a coalition primarily of Civic and Homeowner Associations recognized by the City of Fort Lauderdale. Each member Association sends a representative to participate on the Council. Meetings are held monthly at City Hall every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings
CFLCA seeks to proactively address the concerns of our Members. We provide informative speakers on current topics. We facilitate communication between our members and with the City so that we can all participate in the many activities and volunteer projects that make our City so special. Members participate in committees that tackle the pressing issues facing our City. Recommendations are brought to the City Commission and City Manager so that we may work together in ways that ensure the preservation and enhancement of our neighborhoods and the development of our City.
CFLCA is a member of the Citizen’s Committee of Recognition. Often times the City Commission will call upon CFLCA to represent the neighborhoods when making decisions such as participating on the City Manager Search Committee, the Reapportionment Committee and the Centennial Committee. Many of our members are volunteers on the various City Advisory Boards and Committees.
If you are concerned about a local problem in your neighborhood or a City wide issue that you think needs attention you can find information and support at our meetings. Working together allows us to accomplish almost any task.
