Accomplishments

During my term, I fought alongside lawmakers in Tallahassee and Washington and brought back over $5.5 million dollars to fund initiatives in my district. I have been very accessible and visible throughout my tenure as a Commissioner and my residents have acknowledged that I had a great term. Like my mom told me, “One great term, deserves another.”

These are some of the things my colleagues and I have accomplished in my first term as your Commissioner: 

  • Created One Tamarac Multicultural Festival
  • Created “Light Up the East” Holiday Event at Caporella Park
  • Passed an ordinance providing an additional $25,000 tax exemption to our low income Seniors
  • Advocated for buffer walls along Commercial Blvd.
  • Advocated for new entry way signage throughout the District
  • Provided over $1.4 million dollars in First Time Home Buyer and Home Rehabilitation Grants
  • Acquired land adjacent to Caporella Park at Prospect Road to expand the parking capacity and use
  • Budgeted $25 million dollars to fix water infrastructure, pave roads and beautify our community
  • Budgeted $10 million dollars to upgrade parks and build the City’s first community center on the eastside of town
  • Worked with FDOT to beautify Commercial Blvd.
  • Co-advocated the Little Library concept, providing free story and text books for our young residents
  • Provided over $500,000 to Tamarac residents during COVID to save their homes and rebuild their lives and I will advocate for another $2,000,000 to help residents who have not yet received assistance through grants and other sources

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT, COMMUNITY INVESTMENT AND INFASTRUCTURE PLANS

CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT, COMMUNITY INVESTMENT AND INFASTRUCTURE PLANS

These are projects that I have started and will continue.

  • Construction for the new Prospect Road Wall will begin in the spring of 2021 and we are investing approximately $2,917,730 to build it.

  • Worked with Broward County to reduce the speed limit along Prospect Ave.

  • The City invested approximately $734,000 to purchase the parcels of land across the street from Caporella Park so that we can transform it into an “artsy-multipurpose” parking lot – thus allowing Caporella Park the opportunity to serve its full potential!

  • Caporella Park will be renovated to the tune of $4,113,937 – to become one of our city’s most adorable parks that will serve you and your neighbors.

  • The City owned land at Central Parc will be developed into a park at the tune of $10,000,000 to benefit you! The project will begin soon, and community input will be collected in November before the construction begins.

  • More projects, including constructing a wall along NW 31st Ave., have been budgeted and will commence soon. We will be investing almost $635,405 into that project.

  • The construction of a barrier wall along Commercial Blvd., west of Rock Island Road, toward Shaker Village has been budgeted for and will commence soon. We will be investing almost $635,405 into that project.

  • We are now moving forward in the process to connect the eastside water supply to the Westside distribution system. We are investing approximately $10,784,800 for this project. ALL Tamarac communities east of 441 will be included in this project.

  • Repaving of the Mainlands 1-5 and Shaker Village Streets have been budgeted at $3,533,000 combined and the improvements will begin soon.

  • We are awaiting community input and a grant from the State of Florida valued at $2,500,875 to rebuild a community facility/club house at Shaker Village. Once approved, the City will pursue a partnership with Shaker Village and will award the grant.  A partnership with Shaker Village could wipe out all city liens and fines accrued by the association, and most importantly, residents would NOT have to pay the association an assessment.  Subject to a partnership agreement, neither the Association nor the residents would pay the $2,500,875 back since this is a GRANT and NOT A LOAN.
