In recent years, Broward County has faced another development boom, but one that is quite different. While most growing areas in the country develop by sprawling outward, Broward County is building inward. The desire to move to Broward from Europe, the Caribbean, South America and the rest of the United States has never been greater. That demand has spurred Broward to rebuild itself in order to accommodate more and more people. And because of that, North Lauderdale, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale has seen one exciting project after another open its doors, making the city a more and more attractive place to live. The City may be a cozy five square miles, but its current growth spurt is just getting started.
The City wrapped it's 50th Anniversary year of celebration Dec. 31, 2013 by burying a time capsule on the front lawn of City Hall. The capsule contained numerous items, including copies of the local newspaper, notes from the elected officials, credit cards, etc., all reflecting operations at City Hall today.
