The County Commission is considering a change to its Historic preservation ordinance which will require cities to obtain Certified Local Government (CLG) status with the state of Florida. Designation as a Certified Local government makes historic preservation a public policy through passage of a historic preservation ordinance. The proposed ordinance establishes a historic preservation Board to develop and oversee the functions of its historic preservation program. Should the City chose not to become a CLG, designation and oversight of Historic Structures and districts within the City will be determined by the County Commission upon recommendation by County Historic Preservation Board. As many of the buildings in the city have just reached fifty years old within the last few years, an inventory of potential historic structures needs to be conducted. Master Site Files need to be created for potential historic structures, which includes research of builders, architects of records, historically significant events, architectural
styles, etc. This research and creation of Master Site files will need to be conducted by a consultant with expertise in the area of historic preservation. Historic Preservation Design Guidelines will need to
be developed and a Historic preservation Ordinance will need to be created and adopted in order to establish the program requirements within the City. The County’s proposed amendments were deferred
by the Broward County Planning Council in April, 2019. The County Commission’s consideration is expected this summer. The City staff will engage in an historic preservation expert to begin site files should
the amendment move forward.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this initiative has been placed on hold.  Staff will continue to monitor any changes at the County level, with plans to revive this initiative within the next year.
