The Protect Rio Vista program 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.

According to Ft. Lauderdale City Attorney on Nov. 5, 2020 the Circuit Court has today issued a final order denying AHF’s Petition for Writ of Certiorari, on the merits, which sought to overturn the Board of Adjustment’s decision upholding the City’s interpretation that the proposed project at issue was a Level 5 SSRF.  Also note that the U.S. District Court has recently opined that if the Circuit Court denied the Petition, AHF’s federal claims in U.S. District Court would not proceed.  Although AHF has appellate recourses, those have a significantly more onerous burdens.


See the following two documents regarding this petition.  They have received the required number of signatures and it expected to be on the commission agenda in October.  We will also be discussing this at the general meeting of the RVCA on Monday 9/21.
