Our service delivery approach at the City of Fort Lauderdale is simple – We Build Community. To fulfill this mission, we streamlined the organization to nine departments and organized the Administration around five core service areas: Infrastructure, Public Places, Neighborhood Enhancement, Business Development and Public Safety.

The Strategic Plan defines the stated goals in the context of the meaning for our neighbors.
