Broward County turns 100 in October 2015, but the celebration has already begun!
“Broward 100 - Celebrating the Art of Community” will be a yearlong, community-wide
celebration with events and activities that utilize the arts to strengthen communities
and build unity. Cornerstones of the celebration include: Inside Out, a visual arts
project featuring dramatic, oversized images of residents pasted in outdoor venues;
VisualEYES, a public art project featuring outdoor murals in each of Broward’s commission
districts; a comprehensive online Broward 100 Calendar of sanctioned events; and
a culminating grand finale event October 2-4, 2015 – a celebration of our community’s
diverse talent and the foundation for a recurring, annual signature event of global
renown. To find out how you or your organization can join in, as a sponsor or participant,

Broward County Government
The County Administrator is the chief executive officer of Broward County Government and directs the day-to-day functions of County government under the auspices of the Broward County Board of County Commissioners.
The nine-member elected Board of County Commissioners
is the legislative branch of Broward County Government. A separation between the
legislative and administrative functions of County Government is provided for in
the Broward County Charter, which was established in 1975.
As a regional provider of programs and services to its
residents and visitors, Broward County employs more than 5,200 employees in 50 different
agencies in the areas of transportation, human services, planning and recreation.
Broward County's regional services include one of the nation's fastest growing airports,
a bustling international seaport, an award-winning library system, an ever-growing
transit network, an expanding park system and a variety of community services.
While the diversity of Broward's population of 1.7 million
creates unique challenges in delivering services and providing information, that
diversity also contributes to a dynamic cultural environment that makes Broward
County one of the most interesting and robust places in the world to live and work.
