History & History Related Items

Southwest Ranches history:

When Pembroke Pines attempted to annex the area in the fall of 1996, the residents here desired to preserve their rural life. Eventually, a vote was taken in March, 2000 when area voters chose from three plans - annex to Pembroke Pines, annex to Davie or become a new city. Area residents didn't wait for the vote to begin plans for a new town. They had a contest in October 1999 to name the new town and the winner over 122 different names was Southwest Ranches. The Southwest Ranches Homeowners Association voted to begin the incorporation process early and the legislature approved the bill to allow this. Finally on 14 March, 2000, the vote was taken and the residents declared they wanted a new town, Southwest Ranches. By July, 2000, most problems were ironed out and the new council was elected.
