Hollywood Beach Vision 2027
It's 2027 and Hollywood Beach has evolved into a world-class coastal destination without losing its funky Florida beach town character. Our beautiful beach and historic Broadwalk are still the main attraction, and there are many fun and convenient ways to enjoy Hollywood's tropical maritime environment. A wide range of lodging options allows visitors to choose between small boutique hotels and larger resorts. Hollywood Beach is more pedestrian-friendly than ever and a catalog of green transportation choices make it easy and safe to get around. Hollywood Beach's preserved natural resources have become a significant eco-tourism draw and have distinguished it from more built-out neighboring cities. Marine research and education has also grown into an important industry. The Intracoastal Waterway has matured into its own unique boating, dockside dining and recreational corridor. The historic Hollywood Beach Resort has been spectacularly restored to its original glory and the ramp system at A1A and Hollywood Boulevard has been redesigned to liberate the property's original grounds and provide easy access to the complex. A1A itself is newly reconstructed and functioning as the main street of the beach with wider sidewalks, buffered from traffic by landscaping which has been accommodated by undergrounding the overhead transmission lines. Hollywood Beach has resumed its historic role as the city's most iconic tourism district and its most important economic engine.
Downtown Hollywood Vision 2025
It's 2025 and historic Downtown Hollywood has retained and cultivated its authentic village identity within South Florida's rapidly changing urban environment. It has become a clean, safe and compelling place to live, work and play. The area's charming layout, walkable scale and ease of access have differentiated it from neighboring shopping malls and generic village-themed developments. This vibrant arts district has emerged as a successful international and regional destination for shopping, dining, entertainment, arts and culture. An eclectic mix of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind retailers has invigorated the area as a shopping hot spot. The Downtown dining scene has continued to grow and the main streets have evolved into bustling restaurant rows. Music and cultural events are a key regional draw to the ArtsPark and the surrounding entertainment district, and many creative class businesses with robust employee rosters now call Downtown Hollywood home. Residents and guests also benefit from ample wellness activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. Downtown Hollywood is now recognized as a classic American downtown with an international accent.
