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).
