Strategic Plan

Town Vision Statement

By 2018 Lauderdale-By-The-Sea will have accomplished something rare. While staying authentic and protecting our small town character, we will have given the Town the facelift it needed to stay economically competitive and fiscally sound. Gorgeous beachside plazas will be the heart of the community’s social life.

All the features that residents and visitors love – the relaxed, village atmosphere, the easy walkability of the Town, the many dining choices, retail offerings and traditional festivals – will have been improved and expanded. The hospitality industry will have been reinvigorated and the Town widely known as an amazing shore diving destination and for its distinctive MIMO architecture. In a world where once city looks like another, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea will be uniquely different.
