Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale Florida) received unanimous approval on its 20-Year Master Plan Update from Broward County Board of County Commissioners. The Master Plan (updated from 2014) is a comprehensive blueprint for 5-10-20 years of capital improvements and development.
Every 2-5 years, Port Everglades updates its Master Plan in order to consider new technologies, market trends, environmental initiatives, community development.
For the past 21 months, Port Everglades staff has been working with a consultant team from Bermello Ajamil & Partners and has held over 40 outreach meetings to update the Plan with business intelligence from Port clients, market research, and insight from the residential and environmental communities.
The Port's Master Plan is a roadmap that has steered the Port to become the world's 3rd largest cruise port, one of the nation’s biggest containerized cargo ports and the main hub of South Florida for jet fuel and gasoline.
The Master Plan identifies ~50 projects, of which ~50% will be underway or completed in the next 5-10 years.
