PRV SIGN 225x225




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.

Community Meeting: AIDS Healthcare Foundation Housing - 12/3/18 @ 6 PM at Fort Lauderdale City Hall 

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) launched the Healthy Housing Foundation by AHF which seeks to provide housing units at an affordable cost. AHF is interested in a residential development at 409 SE 8th Street that would provide affordable micro-unit housing that addresses the affordable housing crises. The project would be available for low-income housing (below 50% of the average median income).

Follow this link for the full application to the DRC.  AHF App

 Please come to hear more about this proposal and to ask questions of AHF representatives and City leaders.

For those who may wish to make their opposition to this project known, a petition has been circulated by residents . The RVCA is providing this link for informational purposes only, we are not responsible for any of the content or responses to the petition.  Petition
