The Forum was the heart of a Roman city, a place where citizens could gather and share their knowledge and opinions.

The goal of The Fort Lauderdale Forum is to provide a place for reasoned discussion of current issues affecting the lives of citizens in Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.

Our Next Program

Downtown Master Plan -Vision for future of Downtown Ft Lauderdale

Join us on February 26, 2020 from 7:15am to 9:00am at Broward College

Hear presenters from The City of Fort Lauderdale on the Downtown Master Plan and how it will be incorporated into the City’s code to promote positive redevelopment throughout our Downtown and sets forth the City’s vision for the future of Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
The Downtown Master Plan details the Downtown’s potential and provides a blueprint for creating an active urban center with a variety of public spaces and transportation options as well as a mix of uses, including housing, shopping, employment and entertainment opportunities. The focus of this effort is on the quantitative elements that guide the form of buildings and design of streets. In addition, the code changes will address downtown character areas, transition zones, open space provisions, and application of the standards to residential and nonresidential development.
