The City of Lauderdale Lakes was incorporated on June 22, 1961. The City comprises an area of approximately four square miles in the 'heart' of Broward County, with its center at the crossroads of State Road 7/ US 441 and Oakland Park Boulevard.
At the time of incorporation, there were approximately 300 residents in the area. The physical appearance of the City was vastly different than it is today. State Road 7, then a two-lane undivided road, was the main thoroughfare through the City. The community was basically rural, with most of the land used for farming and grazing. In the early days, the City's only fire truck was staffed by five volunteers, and the 'fire station' was nothing more than a parking lot on State Road 7. The first City Hall was located in a construction trailer on a development site.
Through the 1960s and 1970s, the City grew into a vibrant community boasting a diverse population, economic vitality and beautiful neighborhoods surrounded by sparkling lakes. Since then, new construction, new residents and an expanding business base have created a thriving suburban environment ideal for living, working and playing. As countywide development has spread westward, Lauderdale Lakes has become not only conveniently central, but also highly desirable.
Today, with a population of nearly 32,000, the original staff of two has grown to approximately 100 full-time employees and more than 40 part-time employees, augmented by a team of 107 Broward Sheriff's Office personnel. In addition to the two original departments, the City has grown to serve the needs of our community with dedicated departments including Parks and Human Services, Public Works and Development Services, Financial Services, and Human Resources and Risk Management.
