The City will embrace growth while maintaining its small-town welcoming feeling and atmosphere. The MainStreet project will include shopping, dining, and cultural activities and will be a destination location, serving as a central gathering place for the community. The City will support a vibrant and healthy business economy with a mix of commercial businesses that are unique and diverse. The housing mix will have options for multi-generational buyers and renters.

Smart Growth means:

  • Equitable access to City services, amenities, and information for all neighborhoods
  • Encouraging an inclusive, equitable community that embraces diversity
  • Preserving character-defining features that make Coconut Creek unique
  • Reducing the impacts of our built environment on the natural environment
  • Encouraging the development of quality and affordable housing options for residents of all income levels
  • Maintaining our unique character and sense of place
  • Requiring adequate public facilities and infrastructure to serve existing development and new growth
  • Thriving and growing local, unique, and creative businesses
  • Connecting and developing qualified workers with employers by aligning education and workforce resources to create opportunities for upward career and wage mobility
  • Maintaining the City’s position as a strong regional center with cultural, natural and community amenities
  • Encouraging investment and innovation to enable local businesses to start, sustain and renew through the use of technology
