We've heard you - you want more live-work-play opportunities right here in our City. Help us develop an economic growth strategy that's right for Tamarac!
The City applied for and received a grant from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, which will fund the creation of Tamarac’s Economic Development Strategic Plan. As part of this process, we’ve retained a consultant to study the Tamarac market.
Why do we need this study? We want to build on what’s great about Tamarac and make it even better! We want to attract commercial development and redevelopment that is consistent with who we are as a community. We’re looking to identify new industries that will generate employment and entrepreneurship opportunities and provide the shopping, dining, and entertainment options that you are looking for.
That’s where you come in…
- We’d like to learn what our residents see as Tamarac’s main strengths compared to the surrounding communities.
- Where do you like to shop or enjoy your time with friends and family in our City?
- What places to do you frequent outside of Tamarac?
- What do you see as Tamarac’s best shot at diversifying and growing its economy?
