The City of Tamarac is a full-service City offering residents a variety of services and programs. Located in central Broward County, Tamarac is ideally located with easy access to major highways, shopping, entertainment, and leisure activities.
The City was incorporated in 1963 by developer Kenneth E. Behring, and has grown from an active retirement community to a City that now boasts an average resident age of 45 and greater diversity than ever before.
As the City’s tag line states, Tamarac is “The City for Your Life” — not only is it your City from the moment you are born, it also provides the quality and type of life you deserve throughout your lifetime.
There are many ways you can get involved in your community, whether in our homeowner’s association or through one of the city’s many sports leagues or community service organizations. Here is information on how to get involved through one of the City’s Boards & Committees.
