About Lighthouse Point
Lighthouse Point is a small, albeit unique and very special city, and prime location for a yacht club. It’s also a prime location to live, raise a family, retire, start a business, and own waterfront property close to Hillsboro Inlet. That being said, why not give the City of Lighthouse Point a well-deserved epicenter for luxury living, together with a gathering place in which the city, residents, members, and the community-at-large can be proud of? When the Lighthouse Point Yacht Club was built in 1961, it was the jewel of Lighthouse Point. Over the years this jewel became weathered and worn, both literally and figuratively, to the point where it cannot be restored to its original glory with a simple spit and shine. It is necessary, at this point, to build a new Clubhouse. A Clubhouse that will catapult Lighthouse Point real estate to be comparable in value to that of neighborhoods, such as Las Olas Isles, Rio Vista and Royal Palm. The Clubhouse will be sustainable through the better part of the next century, and one that doesn’t quiver against the threat of hurricane force winds. The Clubhouse will house a Member-Only Club that supports the notion that the City of Lighthouse Point is the preferred place to live, if you desire a lifestyle that boasts the amenities of a larger city, without the traffic and congestion that comes with city living.
The city of Lighthouse Point has a small-town, leisurely feel. The comfortable, laid-back lifestyle of the community is set in a series of attractive neighborhoods tucked away between Boca Raton & Ft Lauderdale in a quiet, tree shaded environment. Most residences are single-family homes, and many sit on the front of the 18 miles of Lighthouse Point’s waterways.
The east side of the community opens up to the Intracoastal Waterway, which sits under the beam of the famous Hillsboro Lighthouse. The city has about 20 acres of public parks and 13 miles of paths. The winding streets are kept clean and feature many cul-de-sacs, making Lighthouse Point ideal for families.
The city also owns and operates its own public library, has excellent police and fire protection, and recreation centers such as tennis and other environmental parks for residents to remain active.
In an area of mangrove swamps and fertile farmland, Miss Juliette Becker built the first home in 1947 on the SE corner of Sample Road and NE 21st Avenue. Four years later, in 1951, the first acreage was acquired for development by R. E. Batemen. In 1951 the first home in a new subdivision called Hillsboro Isles was completed. On December 23, 1953, the first baby, Cynthia Ann Wright, was born to “Lighthouse Point” parents. From these beginnings the future City of Lighthouse Point began to emerge.
A civic association was formed in October 1953. By early 1954 residents of the new community met to decide whether to remain status quo, to be annexed by the City of Pompano Beach, or to incorporate as a separate entity. Our farsighted first settlers chose to incorporate.
On June 13, 1956, the Town of Lighthouse Point came into being when 107 of about 600 people living here voted to incorporate. City Hall operated from a store front at 1811 NE 24th Street. Fire protection was provided by Pompano Beach Highlands volunteers. Court was held on Saturday mornings when necessary. Town meetings were held every second week. In June 1957, Lighthouse Point received its state charter and officially became a City.
A City Hall building was completed at 22nd Avenue and 38th Street in 1959 and by 1963, the City was able to employ a fire chief and ten reserve firefighters. In 1965 a police building was constructed across from City Hall to accommodate both police and fire departments. The two shared space until a new fire station was built later on.
The subdivisions of Venetian Isles, Lighthouse Manor and Wooler Heights were added between 1957 and 1969. In 1970, after approval from Tallahassee and referendum of the people, the Coral Key and Pompano Waterway Estates areas officially became part of Lighthouse Point, increasing its land area to 2.36 sq. miles and population to nearly 9,500.
Officials then focused on supplying services to an expanded population and continuing to qualify as a full-service community. These efforts gave rise to several beautiful parks and mini-parks, including Dan Witt Park, Nature Park (renamed DeGroff Park in 1982) and Lake Placid Park (renamed Frank McDonough Park in 1983). A professional paid fire department started on October 1, 1972. Also in 1972 a modest City library department was created, a full-time librarian hired and a Library Advisory Board appointed. The facility was located in the Venetian Isles Shopping Center. In 1973 a Public Works maintenance building was built at the north end of Dan Witt Park. Cable TV came to us also in 1973. In 1974 the fire station was constructed just south of the Police Building.
In 1990 Cap’s Place was officially listed in the Florida National Register of Historic Places and in 1991 the City designated it as an historic structure. In 1996 the city celebrated its 40th birthday with a City-wide party at which many of its pioneers and benefactors were honored.
Rooted in the unique dynamic history, Lighthouse Point continues to improve as it ages due to significant community leadership, generous involvement and true compassion and innovation from its residents.
The leisurely South Florida boating lifestyle appeals to the local residents its residents and they have no need to be concerned about future expansion. Tucked in among many other communities, with miles of canals Lighthouse Point feels like a quite escape from the hustle and bustle of the neighboring cities. Any worry about the threat of amalgamation into a larger entity is being diminished by preserving city certification.
Approximately 20 acres of parks and mini-parks and 13 miles of sidewalks and bike paths symbolize the importance nature of community life in Lighthouse Point.
