Community Redevelopment Agencies Created by Cities Need

to Stay in the Hands of Cities By Carol Westmoreland, Florida League of Cities

Community Redevelopment Agencies (CRA) are incredibly successful tools for breathing new life into areas that have been forgotten- the “ghost towns” in the centers of our cities. They uniquely gather all the participants in the urban revitalization “room” to provide a sustainable and comprehensive plan to make it happen. They are doing what no one else will do, which is to focus on - and give to - areas where but for the CRA, no one will invest. How is this done? Funding is key - the money used by CRA’S are current (not additional) tax dollars, and must be spent in the local area being revitalized. All over the state, intergovernmental

T

he City of Pompano Beach’s July 4 th celebration this year will begin at 7:00 p.m. with music

and culminate with fireworks off the Fishing Pier at 9:00 p.m.

Pier Redevelopment and 4th of July Festivities

Construction for the exciting redevelopment in and around the Pier will be underway in July, which will close the pier parking lot to make way for a new parking garage, restaurants and retail boutiques. At the same time, a new one-of-a-kind Pier will be built and the entire area will be a pedestrian-oriented destination with lots of green space anchored by our beautiful beach. This construction will significantly reduce parking availability, so the 4 th of July daytime activities have been curtailed this year while the beautification efforts are under way. In addition to the Pier and parking garage, a new street known as Pier Street connecting Pompano Beach Boulevard and A1A will be designed to have onstreet parking, wide sidewalks, landscaped pedestrian areas and a signalized intersection and cross-walk on A1A. Pier Street will connect the Pier property with the Oceanside Park on the west side of A1A and the small park on the Intracoastal, west of Riverside Drive. Landscaping and tree canopies will be added along the newly designed street, to improve the vicinity around the Intracoastal Waterway. Culminating this pedestrian-inviting area will be a new water taxi station geared to allow vessels to pick up and drop off passengers coming to enjoy our new destination. If you plan to attend the fireworks festivities, please use public transportation (Broward County Transit buses, City of Pompano Beach Community buses), bicycles, or share a ride as parking will be at a premium.

By Jason Soldini, Animal Control Office

Lost Pet Searching Goes High Tech Finding a lost pet usually requires a lot of determination and relentless effort. The City of Pompano Beach Animal Control Division receives a lot of calls from owners reporting their lost pet. Many of these pets are never found. The best chance for recovering a lost pet is preparing for that situation in advance. Everyone knows their pet should always wear a visible tag and many have a microchip as backup. Fortunately, there are new high tech tools to add to the arsenal for recovering a lost pet.

Microchips are a great way to identify a pet and due to the permanent nature, they can’t fall off or be easily removed. Most people are aware of this cost effective method of identification. However, many people do not realize that registration is not automatic. The chip must be registered and pet owners should update the registration when they move or change phone numbers. Registration has traditionally had a cost involved but recently a free microchip registration database has been established at www.foundanimals.org . Broward County Animal Care and Adoption implants microchips for only $25. Each December, the City of Pompano Beach hosts the County Shelter’s vaccination, tag and microchip clinic at the Canine Corner Dog Park. This past December, 192 pets were vaccinated and tagged. As a final point, always involve Animal Control in the effort to find or reunite a found pet. Some people fear that contacting Animal Control will result in them taking the found pet. Animal Control will assist in finding the owner however if no one comes forward after reporting the found pet properly, the finder can hold it or even keep the pet. Remember, proper reporting is essential. City ordinance requires the finder of a pet to report it to Animal Control and advertise it in a local publication such as a newspaper or online bulletin board such as Craigslist. After reporting, the pet should be checked for a microchip by bringing him/her to a veterinarian or shelter that will scan it for free. If needed, Pompano Beach Animal Control will even come out and scan the pet for a microchip. All these high tech devices just go to show how important pets are to their

P

et Facial recognition apps are available for download to your smartphone. Users, whether an owner or finder of a pet, can use the smartphone app to take and load a photo into a database that uses facial recognition software for comparison to see if a match is found. Some shelters are now using it to aid in reunifying lost pets. A pet owner can load a photo of their pets into the database as a precaution in case the pet ever goes missing or after it has gone missing. Then if a finder uploads a photo and there’s a match, the app alerts both the owner and finder. Two companies that offer free facial recognition software: findingrover.com | petrecognition.com

Emergencies happen. Natural and man-made disasters occur. Are you, your family and your business prepared? One of the best things you can do to prepare for day-to-day emergencies or large disaster, such as a hurricane, is to take the city’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. CERT is a FEMA initiated training program sponsored by your Pompano Beach Fire Department that educates and prepares citizens for potential hazards that may impact our community. You will be trained in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. Mark your calendar for the April 16th and September 17th CERT class which are held every Thursday for eight consecutive weeks from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m at the Fire Training Facility.

in the county (actually a nine-foot wide gravel road), connecting Miami to Lantana wasn’t constructed until 1892. It was the arrival of the Florida East Coast Railway into Palm Beach in 1894 and its subsequent extension to Miami in 1896 that ended the area’s isolation. The railroad allowed people to travel to South Florida, but just as important it provided a means for the region’s agricultural goods to be shipped to northern markets. Soon farming settlements and towns were established alongside the tracks, including Pompano. Problems began to arise within Dade County as the com-

such as Pompano sought to solve these issues by incorporating, thus allowing local government to address local problems. On a larger scale, citizens in northern Dade County were urging the Florida Legislature to allow them to form their own county. The first attempt to create the new county took place in 1907, and although the incorporation bill passed the Florida Senate, it failed in the House of Representatives. When the delegation returned to Tallahassee in 1909 (at that time the Legislature met biennially), the bill was approved and Palm Beach became the state’s 47th county on July 1st of that year. It had a population of approximately 5,300 people and stretched from the St. Lucie Inlet in the north to Pompano, its southernmost town. Within a few years, though, serious talk began about the creation of a new county out of portions of Dade and Palm Beach. It seemed to be a given that the Hillsboro canal would form the northern border of the new county, which would remove Pompano from Palm Beach One of the factors in the effort to create Broward County was the issue of alcohol. In a referendum on the issue of allowing the sale and consumption of liquor, the northern part of Dade County had voted “dry” by an overwhelming majority. This led

Originally, local residents wanted to name their new county Everglades, but in a somewhat ironic move it was decided to honor the individual who had sought to drain the “River of Grass” – Napoleon Bonaparte Broward.

Elected gover-

nor of Florida in 1904, Broward had championed Everglades drainage and initiated the digging of canals that would divert the flow of water into the ocean. Even though the drainage canals did not produce what was promised, some lands were drained and new farmlands emerged from the muck. On October 1, 1915, Broward County became Florida’s 51st county. The new county was 24 miles north to south and 48 miles east to west, but its population of 4,700 people was concentrated almost exclusively within a mile or two of the coastline. It had only three incorporated municipalities: Dania, Pompano and Fort Lauderdale. On the day Broward became a county, Pompano residents, along with others from throughout the new county, celebrated with festivities in the new county seat, Fort Lauderdale. The day included picnic lunches, a parade, concert and speeches from newly elected County Commissioners, one of whom was Isaac I. Hardy of Pompano.

PARK RANGERS

Your Park Resources The City of Pompano Beach has an outstanding offering of recreation parks, facilities, programs and services for its citizens. The newest addition to the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department are Park Rangers. One of the earliest uses of the term ranger was on badges with the title “Forest Reserve Ranger” which were used from 1898 to 1906 by the U.S. Department of the Interior. These badges were probably issued to the rangers working in the national parks as well as those in the national forests, since both were known as Forest Rangers at

You may have already spotted one of the City’s eight part-time Park Rangers informing the park patrons about the City’s parks and amenities, enforcing the ordinances and ensuring the safety of our residents and visitors. Since the start of the program in November 2014, the Park Rangers have already traveled 4,090 miles around the City, patrolled over the City’s 52 parks and facilities including inspections of pavilions, athletic field rentals and assisting in special events. Currently, the Park Rangers have made

Flood Damage This article is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (F.E.M.A.) to satisfy provisions in the Community Rating System (C.R.S.) for reduced costs for flood insurance. The following is offered to Pompano Beach residents to help prevent and minimize the impact on lives and property caused by floodwaters.

Flood Hazard Map

The City’s Engineering Department has enhanced FEMA’s Flood Criteria Map identifying flood zones for all properties in the city. The FEMA Flood Hazard Areas found within the City limits include Zone X, Zone AE, Zone AH, and Zone VE. The map depicts the flood hazard associated with any parcel in the City. A Summarized flood zones map is located in the Building Inspec- tions Division at City Hall and is available in electronic GIS format.

Flood Risk

Although we have been relatively fortunate for many years, the recent flooding on Halloween 2011 reminds us of the possibility of a flooding event without a major storm or hurricane. The risk of flooding within the City of Pompano Beach can increase by the presence of higher water levels within the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway due to storm surge In general, property located east of State Road A1A within the City has been designated as a coastal zone which encounters greater flooding risk due to waves and storm surge during a significant storm event.

Flood Warning System

The City of Pompano Beach, in coordination with Broward County, has a warning system to notify residents of impending flood danger. Warnings will be transmitted on public address systems such as the City’s website, CODE RED, television channel 78, telephone, and on a door-to-door basis. Listen for instructions during times of flood risk.

Flood Safety

These are precautionary steps to consider before possible flooding: • Listen to radio or television for warnings. • Obey warning and evacuation instructions from disaster officials. • Know your evacuation zone and route. • Take your own essentials (food, toiletries, clothes, blankets, etc.). • Turn off the electricity and gas before leaving your home. • Bring a battery-operated flashlight. • Be careful at all times, particularly at night, and try to remain calm. • Do not drive through flooded roadways • Do not walk through flowing waters • Stay away from electrical wires

Flood Insurance

Most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover property losses due to flood waters. To

{Protect Your Home and Property}

insure your property for flood damage, you need a flood insurance policy. If you do not have valid flood insurance, contact an agent immediately. Property owners can insure property; renters can insure possessions. The City of Pompano Beach participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (N.F.I.P.) to provide city residents with the initial qualification to purchase flood insurance. Flood insurance typically covers the building structure but not the contents so verify your coverage for contents under your homeowner’s insurance. Please note that there is a 30-day waiting period after purchase before NFIP flood insurance coverage takes effect. We applied to F.E.M.A. for participation in the C.R.S. program to enable our residents to qualify for lower flood insurance premiums.

Property Protection

There are ways to minimize property losses from flood damage, including: • Move furniture and other household valu ables to rooms or spaces in the upper story of a two-story dwelling or a location higher than the regular floor elevation in a single story home. • Place sandbags in strategic places around your property prior to flood status. When sand- bags are placed correctly at proper locations, they can slow up and divert flood waters. • Upgrading your property can include regarding your property to provide for on site storage of stormwater runoff, installing an earthen berm along the perimeter, ret rofitting the existing structure to be flood proofed, or elevating the existing structure to raise the finish floor elevation.

Development Permits

All development (new construction, additions, renovations, alterations to properties, etc.) in the City of Pompano Beach require a construction permit. The N.F.I.P. and the Florida Building Code require the entire building to conform to the requirements for a new building when building repairs or alterations exceed 50 percent of the building’s market value. All applicable building permit applications must conform to this requirement when submitted to the Building Inspections Division. The requirement may also apply if a building is substantially damaged. Before building on, altering, regarding, or replacing fill on your property, always check with the Building Division on any permit requirements. A permit may be required to ensure that the construction does not negatively impact adjacent properties. If an ongoing construction project within a City does not have a posted permit sign, please contact the City’s Building Division to report the possible violation.

Stormwater Management

Stormwater is managed through a system of pipes and drainage canals maintained regularly by our Public Works and Utilities Departments. The Broward County Office of Environmental Services and South Florida Water Management District. Constant water flow through these canals, especially during heavy storms, is essential to flood prevention in the City. City and state laws prohibit dumping trash in waterways. Report violators to Public Works Department at 954.786.4060.

Natural Habitat

Natural areas of the City provide a beneficial function by the reducing the potential severity of flooding. These natural areas typically the collect and retain stormwater runoff during rainfall events and allow for the infiltration of stormwater into the natural ground surface, which can reduce the flooding levels within the developed areas of the City. These natural areas also enhance the water quality of stormwater runoff by allowing suspended sediments and nutrients to settle during the retention period. State regulations protect those natural areas that help to reduce the risks associated with flooding. Along the beach, no new structures are permitted seaward of the Coastal Construction Line without permission. Other restrictions protect some wetland areas from development.

Rate Reductions

On June 11th, 1993, F.E.M.A. awarded the City with a Class 9 rating in the C.R.S. This rating earned Pompano Beach residents a five percent discount on flood insurance premiums. In September 1994, the City received official notification that Pompano Beach residents are eligible for an additional five percent discount, or ten percent total, on flood insurance based on the City complying with the requirements for a Class 8 rating in the C.R.S. In July 2012, F.E.M.A. awarded the City a class 7 rating so flood insurance policy holders in special flood hazard areas in the City now receive a 15% discount on their insurance premiums.

Additional Information

We urge City residents to contact or visit the Building Inspections Division to determine the flood zone and flood elevation for their property. Pompano Beach City Hall is at 100 W. Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach, Florida. The Pompano Beach Branch of the Broward County Library, located at 1213 East Atlantic Boulevard, has information on flood insurance, flood protection and flood plain management. For More Information email floodzoneinfo@copbfl.com or contact Paola West, City of Pompano Beach CRS Coordinator at 954.454.7780 or Michael Rada, City of Pompano Beach Floodplain Manager at 954.786.4062.
