Welcome to The Broadview Park Civic Association’s official website. We are the voice of our community, located just west of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
NEXT MEETING – The next regular meeting of the Broadview Park Civic Association will be on Tuesday, April 7, 2015, at Sunview Park, 7:30 PM. We’ll hear from BSO and other county departments and learn what’s going on in our community.
COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP – Join us on Saturday, April 11th, for our community clean-up. Report to Sunview at 8:30. The county provides safety vests, gloves, and trash bags and also has a t-shirt and other fun prizes for volunteers. Small teams will be assigned to areas to pick up litter from 9-12. Return to Sunview at noon for pizza and drinks. A dumpster will be set up on 18th Street on the south side of the park so residents can bring bulk and hazardous items and a clam truck will tour the area. All ages welcome. Kids, earn community service hours.
IMPORTANT – When calling 911, identify your home address as UNINCORPORATED FORT LAUDERDALE. This will help the operator identify your location under Fort Lauderdale numbering. There are other areas of the county, such as Pembroke Park, that have the same street numbers and addresses.
FREE HELP WITH TAX RETURNS – Do you need help preparing and submitting your tax return? Volunteers are available at Sunview Park on Wednesdays from 6 to 8 PM and Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM from now until April 11th. Bring identification, social security numbers and birthdates or taxpayer ID numbers for yourself and your dependents, and other information. Go to www.irs.gov and type VITA in the search box. Click on “Free tax return preparation for you by volunteers” for more details.
IT’S TIME TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP: The Christmas food drive made a big dent in our treasury as we bought turkeys for 83 families – more than twice as many families as last year. We need your dues of $10 per family for the year 2015 to support our projects. Make checks payable to the Broadview Park Civic Association and mail to Nancy Walton, 4224 SW 20th Street, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33317.
