Plans & Maps

The City of Lauderhill and the Lauderhill Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) have developed a bold, comprehensive plan to reverse decades of slow decline in the State Road 7 corridor and to transform it into a showcase of diversity, style, and function in Broward County. The plan, already in progress, features infrastructure improvements that are not only aesthetically pleasing but which also, taken as a whole, create a sense of place that reflects the diversity of cultures in Lauderhill, defines the City and contributes to its moniker as an All-America City.

The plan leverages a new Broward County Regional Park and Cricket field as a magnet for international tourism and housing development. Finally, the plan calls for active public involvement in the redevelopment process through land acquisition and zoning changes that allow for partnerships with private developers that share the same vision of the plan.
