During the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, the young city grew rapidly, adding over 35,000 residents each decade.

The city government's effective fiscal management has maintained high bond ratings, and the city has won accolades for its overall livability, its low crime rate, and its family-friendly orientation.

History

Coral Springs is a planned community. Prior to its incorporation as a city in July 1963, the area which is now Coral Springs was part of 20,000 acres (80 km²) of marshy lands bought by Henry Lyons between 1911 and 1939. After several floods in 1947, Florida created the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District (now the South Florida Water Management District). Canals and levees drained much of the area upon which Coral Springs was built. After the land was drained and cleared, most of the area was used as a bean farm. Lyons died in 1952 and his heirs moved from beans to cattle.[7] A New town or planned community or planned city is a city, town, or community that was designed from scratch, and grew up more or less following the plan. ... The 1947 Atlantic hurricane season was an ongoing event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. ...


A post-World War II real estate boom in South Florida attracted the interest of developers. Coral Ridge Properties, which already had several developments in Broward County, bought 3,869 acres (16 km²) of land from the Lyons family on December 14, 1961 for $1 million.[5] The City of Coral Springs was chartered on July 10, 1963. Other names that were considered for the new city included "Curran Village", "Pompano Springs" and "Quartermore". By 1964, the company had developed a master plan for a city of 50,000 residents. On July 22, 1964 the first sale of 536 building lots netted $1.6 million. The landmark covered bridge was built that same year to promote the town. In 1965, Coral Ridge Properties bought an additional 6,000 acres (24 km²) from the Lyons family; the total land area of Coral Springs increased to 16 square miles (41 km²). The first city government elections were held in 1967.

The city added nineteen public schools, a regional mall, shopping centers and parks during the last three decades of the twentieth century in response to rapid population growth. The construction of the Sawgrass Expressway in 1986 brought even more growth. A museum and a theater opened in the 1990s. The city reached residential build-out in 2003[8] and is very close to a commercial build-out.[9] The Sawgrass Expressway, also designated Florida State Road 869, is a 24-mile-long toll bypass of Broward County, Florida, extending westward from US 1 (SR 5) in Deerfield Beach as a surface street, then becoming a toll expressway as it passes Floridas Turnpike (although there is no westbound...

The city's historically low crime rate was marred in the early 1990s, when teen gang violence made headlines, with fights and murders reported. The violence subsided and the city returned to its previously peaceful state in 1995.[10] [11] [12] [13] [14]

Coral Springs City Hall
Coral Springs City Hall

Coral Springs uses the council-manager form of municipal government, with all governmental powers resting in a legislative body called a commission. Coral Springs' commission is composed of five elected commissioners, one of whom is the mayor of the city and another of whom is the vice-mayor.[35] The mayor and vice-mayor serve a two-year term; the commissioners serve four year terms. The offices are non-partisan; no candidate is allowed to declare a party affiliation. The role of the commission is to pass ordinances and resolutions, adopt regulations, and appoint city officials, including the city manager. While the mayor serves as a presiding officer of the commission, the city manager is the administrative head of the municipal government, and is responsible for the administration of all departments. The city commission holds its regular meetings biweekly.[36] As of 2007, the Mayor is Scott J. Brook. The Vice-Mayor is Roy Gold; the other commissioners are Vince Boccard, Ted Mena and Claudette Bruck. The City manager is Michael S. Levinson.

Coral Springs has two designated Florida Heritage sites.[68] The Covered Bridge was the first structure built in the city, in 1964. The steel bridge, 40 feet (12 m) in length, is the only covered bridge in Florida in the public right-of-way. The American Snuff Company provided two historical designs for the bridge sides, to make the structure appear aged. The Covered Bridge is depicted in Coral Springs' seal. The Museum of Coral Springs History started as a real estate office. Built outside the City limits, the single-room wooden structure was moved to Coral Springs and became its first administration building. Later it was used as the first police station, and as a Jaycees clubhouse; it was moved to the city dump in 1976, where it was used as a fire department training site for smoke drills. After it was inadvertently set on fire, public outcry prompted the building's relocation to Mullins Park for restoration. Since 1978, it has housed the city's history museum. The exhibits in the museum are historic items and city models.[69] An easement is the right to do something or the right to prevent something over the real property of another. ...

Origination and History of Balanced Measures Approach (1101 words)
As Coral Springs applied and was being reviewed for the Sterling Award, Florida’s equivalent to Baldrige Award, they realized that their performance measurement was too heavily weighted towards customer "perceptions" and not enough on results.
While Coral Springs continues to track feedback from citizens through a community wide survey, as well as transactional surveys of service satisfaction, they have worked over the past three years to develop a balanced set of "key intended outcomes" (or KIOs) for each of their strategic priorities.
Coral Springs has invested significantly in sharing their performance results with internal and external stakeholders.
