The Rio VIsta Civic Association is a voluntary civic association created to preserve the value and desirability of Rio Vista. We also strive to enrich the quality of life in Rio Vista through community projects and representation of its residents to other organizations. Membership is limited to residents of Rio Vista, owners and tenants. Renewing your membership will ensure your right to vote at general meetings on issues of importance to the neighborhood.
One of the key programs under RVCA is the Protect Rio Vista program which utilizes your subscription funds to hire off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers to patrol in the neighborhood. The officers are in uniform when on duty and have full authority to take official action action should a crime take place while on patrol. The officers patrol in a marked car leased by the civic association and will be dispatched by FLPD for any 911 call recieved from the neighborhood. Members also recieve a cell phone number by which they may contact the patrol officers directly while they are on duty. Members also recieve the opportunity to request a vacation check of their home when they are out of town.
