In the spare time of our Leadership Team, we have begun building a new website. Most of it is in place structurely, but we need to load content and pictures and continue building out ideas that have come in from our active residents. So if you come across a page that is going back to the home page, that means we're not done yet. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
So who are we? The Lake Ridge Civic Association, Inc. (LRCA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale known as Lake Ridge. Our neighborhood is located on the north side of Sunrise BLVD, east side of Flagler RD, southside of NE 13th Street, and west side of Federal HWY. We work with with everyone possible from residents at the street level on up to the Fort Lauderdale Commission and even higher if necessary. We are trying to meet all the public safety needs, the "green" needs, the infrastructure needs and the needs of neighbors by connecting with each other at special events, responding to concerns, proactively seeking out problematic issues, and by building great relationships with each other, our neighborhoods all around us and with those at City Hall. Lake Ridge is a great place to live, work and play. We promote Unity in the Community, and we walk the talk.
