Victoria Park Civic Association - Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Victoria Park Civic Association

Nestled in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale, we're a vibrant community that's evolving into the future while still retaining the charm of Old Florida.  Located between the Isles of Las Olas / Intracoastal Waterway / Middle River and Federal Highway, stretching from Broward to Sunrise Boulevards, we're home to more than 10,000 diverse residents who enjoy living near the amenities of Downtown, the shopping and fine dining of Las Olas, and sun, sand and surf of the world famous Fort Lauderdale Strip -- all while enjoying a cozy residential neighborhood.  If real estate is all about "location, location, location" -- we have it, have it, have it!  And if community is all about people, we have a diverse and tolerant population pulling together to make our corner of paradise even better.

There's a lot going on in our neighborhood -- and our Association is busy too.  So check out what's happening. If you are already a member, thank you!  If not, consider joining your neighbors in improving Victoria Park -- sign up here

Traffic Plan Updates

A draft copy of updates to the traffic components of our Master Plan are available for review. Traffic Plan draft. The plan addresses all modes of transportation (pedestrians, bicyclists, automobiles and shared transportation options) and other issues affecting our streetscapes such as drainage and landscaping.

The updated plan follows the county's new Complete Street guidelines -- click here for a summary of those guidelines and how they affect Victoria Park  Complete Street in Victoria Park.

The proposals in this plan are the result of a series of workshops and traffic meetings over the past couple of years.  An up-to-date, comprehensive master plan will help us obtain funding for traffic projects throughout the neighborhood.  We'll be discussing this draft proposal and voting on its adoption this fall.  If you have any questions or comments, please direct them to traffic@vpca.org

Protect Your Plants

Victoria Park has always been a neighborhood which is proud of our trees and lush landscaping.  But occasionally, pest infestations put our plants on high alert -- you can thank our wonderfully-warm winters, in part, as we don't get those killing freezes which wipe out (or at least reduce the population of) pests in northern climes.

There's LOTS more information where that came from: use this link to answer any plant or pest questions.

See how YOUR yard measures up to the "Florida Friendly" landscaping strategies in this brochure.
