                                              Broward Vice Mayor’s Message

                                              Dear Community Members,

                                                       ello April and a special greeting to all the new District 4 residents! It is with
                                                       great excitement that I welcome residents of the Harbor Beach community to
                                              HDistrict 4. Due to redistricting, District 4 gained many new communities and
                                              associations in the City of Fort Lauderdale. I look forward to working with you as we
                                              continue to move our community forward. Here are several updates the Broward County
                                              Commission and employees have been working on.

                                              Convention Center Project and Bypass Road Update
                                              As you may be aware, the County Commission undertook this major project of
                                              expanding the Broward County Convention Center and adding a new headquarters
                                              hotel in 2016. I’m proud to say the project has been moving forward accordingly and
                                              the Commission took the right steps to make sure the project continued even through the
                                              difficulty and height of the pandemic. The vertical construction for the Hotel and East
                                              Expansion commenced in the past couple weeks. Bonds were issued in December for
                                              the East Expansion and will be issued for the Hotel in April.
