How the Streets Got Their Names McNab Road: Pompano pioneers William “Harry” McNab (1878 – 1956) and Robert A. McNab (1882 – 1958), arrived in Pompano around the turn of the twentieth century and were active in the agricultural, commercial and civic life of the By Dan Hobby, Sample-McDougald House Executive Director

community. The two yellow brick homes located in the 1700 block of East Atlantic Boulevard were built by the brothers in the mid-1920s. What is today known as McNab Road began

A significant amount of Pompano Beach’s history is found in the names of thoroughfares that crisscross the city. Several originated as farm roads and when they became part of the city’s street system they retained the names of the farmers who had first established them. Others represent geographical features or even the entity that funded construction. Below are the origins of some of Pompano Beach’s major roads:

as an access road to reach their farmlands south of Pompano. There is also a school and a park in Pompano Beach that takes the name McNab.

Atlantic Boulevard: Obviously this thoroughfare takes its name from the body of water at its eastern terminus, but before it was Atlantic Boulevard its name was Ocean Drive. Why was the name changed? It seems that the impetus was an increasing amount of confusion between Ocean Drive and Ocean Boulevard (A1A). This hadn’t been much of a problem when the town was small, but by the early 1950s many visitors and new residents were finding it difficult to make the distinction – even the City Directory mixed up the two roadways – and Ocean Drive became Atlantic Boulevard.


11000010100111010000 Copans Road: The name of this road remains somewhat 01100000100011100010 of a mystery. Supposedly there once existed a rock pit west 10000110100100110111 of town, near where the Forest Lawn Cemetery is today that was owned by a man with the name of Copans. It has been claimed that this Mr. Copans lived in the area that is now Leisureville. Unfortunately, as yet I have not been able to find any documents to verify these stories.

Sample Road: Albert Neal Sample (1865 – 1941) followed his younger brother John to the Pompano area in the early years of the twentieth century. When John left to join other members of the Sample family in Ft. Pierce, Neal stayed and continued the farming first started by his brother. In 1916, he constructed what is now known as the SampleMcDougald House on Dixie Highway, north of town. The road he built to access his field would later be expanded and named Sample Road. 1969 Aerial Photograph of Atlantic Boulevard

Green Road: West of Pompano Beach Highlands, 48 th Street becomes Green Road which is named for another of Pompano Beach’s farmers, in this case, Virgil D. Green

held in 1915 to promote the roadway, the moniker was changed to Dixie Highway to honor “Fifty Years of Peace” between North and South. Less than a year-and-a-half later, Fisher led a caravan on the Dixie Highway from Indianapolis to Miami. In the years that followed, tens of thousands of new residents and visitors took the same route to Florida.

Cypress Road: Today’s Cypress Road, running from Atlantic Boulevard south to the Pompano Beach city limits and serving as the city’s east-west dividing line below Atlantic Boulevard, was originally known as Cypress Creek Farm Road. In its early days, the road did not bridge the Pompano Canal (and so did not connect to Atlantic Boulevard) and had its southern terminus at today’s McNab Road, just north of the then natural-flowing Cypress Creek. For the most part, the roadway passed though farmland and wilderness — up until the 1950s, very few people lived in what is today south Pompano Beach.

Federal Highway: The name of this major north-south roadway is obvious: much of the funding to configure and improve the thoroughfare was provided by the United States government during the Great Depression. Federal Highway was originally designated State Road 4 by the Florida Legislature in 1923. At that time it was largely a collection of local road connected together. So as to standardize numbering across state lines, in 1926 the federal government authorized the numbering of highways on a national basis, leading to State Road 4 becoming U.S. 1.

Pompano Beach Social Services Resource Connection Event. The Pompano Beach Social Services Resource Connection Event was held in September at the E. Pat Larkins Community Center. Over 50 federal, state, county and local social service agencies and resources were on hand to provide every possible resource available to those who need help but do not know who to turn to for assistance. The idea for the event was initiated by Pompano Beach Commissioner Ed Phillips whose vision was to bring local, county, state and federal social service organizations directly to the community to help simplify the process for those in need. In the photo above, Commissioner Ed Phillips poses with participants from the social service resource connection event.

he Broward Sheriff’s Office has a new Homeless Outreach Team

(HOT) whose main objective is to provide direct outreach services to the homeless in order to reduce the prevalence and duration of homelessness in Pompano Beach. The HOT deputies are able to connect with people experiencing homelessness and provide and inform them of the services available to them. They provide a continuum of care that will allow a person to break the homeless cycle. The services that are offered include shelter, health care, detox facilities, housing, and reunification to family members.

The Homeless Outreach Team consists of two deputies that work in this capacity on a full time basis allowing them to build trust, rapport and empathy within the homeless community. This trust allows the HOT deputies to gather information on street crimes, as well as direct people towards ser-

the homeless. This brings understanding of the needs and problems associated

Pier Development Project Breaks Ground In the last year, the City of Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency has made a lot of new and exciting changes to the Barrier Island in Pompano Beach.

The Pier Parking Garage will be the first public parking garage in Pompano Beach and will feature iconic architecture, five levels of enclosed parking with 663 spaces, 6,200 square feet of retail space and a new tourism and welcome center. The garage is the first development to break ground as part of the overall Pier Development Project that will include 40,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and two new pedestrian friendly streets connecting the Pier to the Intracoastal. A groundbreaking ceremony for the garage was held in June.

The Pier Development Project will also include oceanic fine dining restaurants to enhance the beachfront experience and will break ground in the coming months.

Fire Station 11 Ribbon Cutting & Dedication

The City of Pompano Beach celebrated the grand opening of the new Fire Station 11, known as the beach fire station, with a ribbon cutting and dedication. The new fire station, located on Ocean Boulevard, replaces the original beach fire station which was built in 1957. This new two-story 13,000 square foot building has been designed to provide a safe and efficient fire station built to withstand a category five hurricane. The new fire station has three 80 foot apparatus bays among other features. It is ADA compliant and LEED Silver certified and will meet the emergency fire and rescue needs of Pompano Beach residents. This ergonomically designed station also houses the EMS cart used for responses on the beach, a rescue boat and a reserve fire engine. Fire Station 11 has been dedicated to Pompano Beach Fire-Rescue Lt. William Fay. Bill Fay was a well-respected and dedicated 23-year veteran of the Fire Department who passed away while still

Beach Library is now Open The City of Pompano Beach celebrated the grand opening of the new Beach Branch Library located at the SE corner of NE 2 nd Street and Riverside Drive. The Grand Opening event included an official ribbon cutting ceremony with the City of Pompano Beach and Broward County Commissioners. The 5,400 square foot library, within steps from the beach, features a 1,000 square foot meeting room and a veranda with outdoor seating overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. The old beach library building, which used to be located in the Pompano Fishing Pier Parking Lot, had to be demolished ahead of the new pier development. The City’s Community Redevelopment Agency has been working hand-in-hand with Broward County library staff to achieve the transition to the new library site.

731 Building Grand Opening The Pompano Beach Community Redevelopment Agency has done an outstanding job improving the streetscape of the MLK corridor including the landscape, road work and most distinctively the construction of a building which is the first to be established on the boulevard in fifty years. The 731 Building now houses a number of merchants that bring something unique to the building that enhances the feel of the street and is sure to bring in more economy and foot traffic to Pompano Beach. This building is the epitome of a full service piazza. Spend the day primping before shining at your photo shoot and round out the day with some soul food before heading home or out for the night.

Fish Out of

Water

P O M PA N O B E A C H he City of Pompano Beach has started installing the twelve painted pompano fish sculptures for the two-year outdoor exhibition called “The Painted Pompano Series.” The unveiling of the giant fish sculptures took place earlier this year and they were on display along with their human artists and City officials in front of BaCA, which is the restored historic Bailey building. BaCA is the City’s new art destination offering art and performances, gallery space and eight independent artist studios. Some of the artists used BaCA studios to paint the fish. Twelve artists were chosen to paint the five foot tall fish sculptures which are painted in various mediums, styles and techniques. The sculptures are being placed at locations throughout the City. The design of the fish is an enlarged and stylized pompano fish jumping out of the ground or water. The Painted Pompano Series is the first project to be unveiled as part of the City’s Public Art Program. The Public Art Committee is currently finalizing a ten year Master Plan. Keep your eyes on the street for the Painted Pompano and for many new public art projects that will be rolled out in the upcoming years!

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 Division 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 Inspections 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 high 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.
