Miramar's History 

Founding the City
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%0A%2D%2D%3E
The City of Miramar was incorporated May 26, 1955. At the time of incorporation, the City had a population of less than 200 people. With approximately 2.9 square miles land area, Miramar's original city boundaries were: Southwest 64th Avenue on the east, University Drive on the west the Dade County Line on the south, and Pembroke Road on the north. Most cities have their beginnings when either 1 man, or group of men, venture out to "start anew" and develop their own community. Some new communities use as a basis for expansion existing rail lines, roadways, or waterways. Although Miramar was founded by 1 person, A.L. Mailman, its basis for development was not transportation oriented, but rather to serve as a "bedroom" community for Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

Home Development

Mr. Mailman bought the original property he was to develop from H.D. Perry, Sr. in 1953. He built 56 homes on the property. These were inexpensive homes of concrete and flat roofs. These homes sold quickly because of the low cost of both the homes and the land, and the City of Miramar came into being.

As a point of information, Mr. H.D. Perry Sr.'s part in Miramar's history did not cease with selling of the land to Mr. Mailman for development. He is recognized as one of the foremost pioneers in the history of Miramar. His character and civic-activities influenced not only the lives of early residents, but continues to the present-day, as evidenced by the schools and parks in the City which bear his family's name. Many long-time residents fondly recall the community barbecues hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Perry during those early years. Others are grateful to Mr. Perry for the lessons in animal husbandry, which he conducted for the benefit of Miramar's youth so that they could learn something of farm life.

Road Development
The only major roads of note when Miramar was developed were U.S. 441 (a 2-laned road at that time), Hallandale Beach Boulevard to 66th Terrace and Pembroke Road (which was a dirt road) to University Drive. With these exceptions, there were no transportation routes of any kind supplying access to the new community.



Land Use

Although erratic expansion is common in new towns, Miramar's early City fathers advocated the philosophy of planned and controlled growth. Miramar is considered a leader in South Florida in development of effective land use controls, having adopted a Comprehensive Land Use Plan in 1972 before cities and counties were mandated to do so. Miramar's 1972 Comprehensive Land Use Plan and subsequent update provide the framework for the orderly development of future growth. A fact not widely known is that the residential City of Miramar is one of the largest cities in size in the State of Florida. With two-thirds of our land not yet developed, the decision to guide and control Miramar's growth remains a wise one.

Preserving the Good Life

The present Administration is dedicated to preserving the character of Miramar by enhancing the quality of life in promoting and attracting development that will enrich this community without detracting from its culture and dedication to good family living. This positive meld between business and government in their mutual concern for positive development and growth in our City is producing one of the finest cities in South Florida.

From the time of its founding Miramar has been and continues to be a family-oriented community. The city's professional recreational staff plans year-round activities geared to this strong family orientation with something for everyone, from "tiny tots" to senior citizens.

Redevelopment
Redevelopment is concentrated in the eastern quarter of the city, which has been largely built out since the mid-1960s. It includes several public and private projects, including redevelopment of the old city Hall into a Multi-Service Complex, infrastructure (water, sewer and drainage) improvements, the Miramar Parkway Streetscape program (new sidewalks, landscaping and pedestrian lighting), and the commercial rehabilitation program that leverages the city's Community Development Block grant funds for upgrades to existing commercial building facades.

City of Convenience
There are many reasons Miramar has become a preferred locale for major corporations and Fortune 500 companies to call home. The city is centrally located between the Miami and Fort Lauderdale metro areas and less than 30 minutes to the Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports and seaports. Interstate 75, and the Florida Turnpike are located within Miramar and 1-95 and the Sawgrass Expressway are minutes away. Miramar was named among the top 100 of "America's Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine in 2006 and again in 2008; offers the largest commerce park in the region which includes a foreign trade zone; and has a highly skilled and professional workforce.

Miramar is in a unique position relative to attracting corporate relocation, small and mid-sized businesses and development. The city government is committed to ensuring the quality of life currently enjoyed by its residents and providing the opportunity for sound and managed growth. The city also enjoys top flight medical treatment with Memorial Regional located within the city limits as well.
