The Protect Rio Vista program utilizes your subscription funds to hire off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers to patrol in the neighborhood.  The officers are in uniform when on duty and have full authority to take official action action should a crime take place while on patrol.  The officers patrol in a marked car leased by the civic association and will be dispatched by FLPD for any 911 call recieved from the neighborhood.  Members also recieve a cell phone number by which they may contact the patrol officers directly while they are on duty.  Members also recieve the opportunity to request a vacation check of their home when they are out of town.

The Planned Development District (PDD) zoning ordinance is derived from the former Planned Unit Development (PUD) and Innovative Development (ID) zoning ordinances. On June 21, 2022, the City Commission directed staff to conduct public outreach regarding amending the current PDD ordinance to allow for increased building height from 300 feet to 500 feet. The existing regulations state that building height for a proposed PDD development may be increased by an additional amount equivalent to one hundred and twenty-five (125) percent of the existing height identified in the underlying zoning district, but in no case shall height exceed three hundred (300) feet.

Below are links to two documents, one which summarizes the ordinance and the full text of the ordinance.
