On September 11, 2012 the Broward County Board of County Commissioners adopted Resolution No. 2012-512, establishing the Central County Community Advisory Board (CCCAB). The general purpose of the CCCAB is to relay to the Commission the proposals and concerns of the four Broward Municipal Services District's Central County neighborhoods:
- Boulevard Gardens

The Board shall consist of eight (8) members who shall be appointed by the Board of County Commissioners ("Commission"). There shall be two (2) members from each of the neighborhoods of Boulevard Gardens, Franklin Park, Roosevelt Gardens, and Washington Park, consisting of the current president of the recognized neighborhood association and one (1) resident from each neighborhood, appointed by the Commission from a list of neighborhood residents wishing to serve on the Board. The Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and Professional Standards, or its successor agency, shall maintain a list of neighborhood residents wishing to serve on the Board for each neighborhood.
All members of the Board shall reside in the applicable community. A member serving on the Board in the capacity as president of the recognized neighborhood association shall serve for the duration of his or her term as president, unless removed from the Board by the Commission. In the event a neighborhood association president is unable or unwilling to serve on the Board, or is removed from the Board by the Commission, the vice-president of the neighborhood association shall serve on the Board. If neither is willing or able to serve on the Board, or both are removed from the Board by the Commission, the Commission shall appoint a resident from the applicable community from the list of neighborhood residents wishing to serve on the Board. Board members shall serve subject to the provisions of Section 1-233 of the Broward County Code of Ordinances.
Any member of the Board may be removed from the Board without cause by a majority vote of the Commission. The Board may recommend to the Commission removal of a member of the Board. The Board must give the board member reasonable notice and an opportunity to be heard before making its recommendation. The Commission may consider removal of a member of the Board upon its own initiative.
