A Florida firefighter rescued a severely injured puppy that was found abandoned inside crate at her Pompano Beach station. Nicole Velarde, a firefighter and paramedic with Pompano Beach Fire Rescue, was returning from call Sunday when she discovered the crate on the floor of the station's bay. The terrier mix was badly burned all along his back. "I love animals," Velarde said. "I'm a huge animal lover so my first instinct was, 'Who dropped this dog off here?'" Velarde rushed the approximately 5-month-old pooch to a veterinarian who confirmed the puppy, who she named "Scruffy," was suffering from burns that were now infected. Scruffy had to be sedated to be examined because of the extent of his injuries. With record temperatures around the country, it is important to keep your dogs in mind when it comes to keeping cool.

Eastern Pompano Beach has quickly positioned itself to become the next hot spot for development in South Florida. Investors are betting that recent public sector efforts will translate into a thriving community. The growing interest in the once dilapidated area is attributed to the efforts of the city’s Community Redevelopment Agency (“CRA”). The City of Pompano Beach, working with its Chamber of Commerce, has laid the foundation to attract private investment to the city.Over the last year the CRA has prepared a long-term finance plan to guide the redevelopment of the East and Northwest Redevelopment districts, hired professional staff to implement streetscape plans and incentive programs and positioned the Agency to engage in public-private partnerships to attract private investment. The underlying message is that the City of Pompano Beach is open for business!Redevelopment Plan Paying DividendsThe CRA’s long-range plan appears to be paying off with … [Read more...] about Eastern Pompano Beach (South Florida) is Open for Business

Wednesday, a Boca Raton developer served the city a lawsuit after it rejected plans to build up to 2,500 apartments and condos off Military Trail near the Town Center mall.On the same day, Pompano Beach gave initial approval to a 354-foot luxury high-rise next to the beach, which will be the city’s tallest building.And all of that comes after Fort Lauderdale voters swept a new city commission into power in March elections that takes a dim view of overdevelopment, potentially putting the brakes on years of widespread growth, up to and including a major condo development on public property at Bahia Mar that new Mayor Dean Trantalis voted against as a city commissioner.It’s easy to see why politicians have readily approved major condo developments in the past — the property taxes taken in from a high-rise condominium are considerably more than a couple of single-family homes on the same property. And with no state income tax, the great ponzi scheme that is Florida only … [Read more...] about A major high rise in Pompano, a major lawsuit in Boca — when is new development too much?
