City of Tamarac- A Hidden Gem!

Real Estate Agent with


City of Tamarac is a Hidden Gem. Most people think of Tamarac as an Active Adult Community, they don't realize how peaceful and relaxing city it can be. I have been living in Tamarac now for 11 years and absoultly love it!!!

History Lesson

July 25, 2008 marks the 45th Anniversary of the incorpartion of the City of Tamarac. It was back in July 1963 that Kenneth E. Behring, the originial developer of the City, along with his attorney William Morse( who became our first Mayor), obtained the articles of incorporation for the new City from the Florida Secretary of State. Originally envisioned as an active retirement community of reasonably priced homes offering a maintance free lifestyle, the City has grown in one of the most sought  after  locations for the retirees, empty nesters, families and young people alike in Broward County and South Florida. Tamarac's first development wasa East of the Turnpike off of what is now Commerical Boulevard- The Mainlands. The popularity of the location and amenities offered helped fuel the expansion westward. This expansion explains the unique shape of the City's current boundaries. Today, Tamarac is as exciting and vibrant a City as ever! Just a few short years ago the average age of residents was in the low to mid 60's. today, the lastest census shows the the City's average resident's age is 45 and that our diversity is changing just as rapidly. The City boasts a population that includes hispanic, creole, and other nationalities- more than ever before. Development contunues within the City as evidenced by our contuned growth, the revitalization of existing properites, and the enthusiasm for the future of the proposed new mised use corridor which will include a live/work environment.

What a nice post. I especially like the covered play areas for the kids. (We should implement something like that in North Carolina! It's just waaaay too hot here, in my opinion, for the kids to play outside this time of the year.)

No mention of the rising crime rate, the lack of accountability of elected officials, and the upcoming raise in the millage rate.
