As we are constantly protected by the beam of the famed Hillsboro Lighthouse which has stood guard over the Hillsboro Inlet since 1906, Lighthouse Point has become its own beacon of stability in a sea of economic turmoil. In a climate of falling property values throughout South Florida, our city posted increased property values. While many cities in Broward County have raised taxes or cut services to make ends meet, Lighthouse Point actually cut tax millage and has maintained all its high quality services. While committed to preserving our community’s interests at all levels, our City Commissioners, Boards, and Employees are doing all they can to promote a positive business environment that encourages businesses to grow and prosper.
We are proud of the special relationships developed over the years with our business community that continually supports and develops stronger bonds between our residents and our business owners. A common theme has always been to “Shop Local”. We need to plant the seeds of economic recovery in our own backyard. Every dollar spent in our City is re-spent many more times before depleting its economic value.
We have a wondrous collection of fabulous restaurants and businesses vying for services in troubling times. Why not next time we’re looking for somewhere to eat, somewhere to shop, or professional services, do it locally. Local businesses create character and prosperity in our own community and local business owners re-invest in our community.
We are especially thankful for all donations made to support City activities from the Lighthouse Point Chamber of Commerce. Improvements to our Library, Emergency Medical Services and recreational programs have all been made possible by generous grants from the Chamber.
I’d like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and commit to a long and mutually prosperous relationship
with our own Lighthouse Point Chamber of Commerce.
