City Manager Robert Baldwin has implemented Dania Beach Oasis - Rebuilding Neighborhoods, an innovative community project that is improving the city one street at a time.
"Disorder in a neighborhood leads to crime. So we try to create a better area, a safer environment and crime will be reduced. By beautifying a street, the residents see the improvements and start improving their own properties. That's why we call it the Oasis Program because it grows. We plant seeds and the residents actually react to that by improving their own properties. We really think that this is having such a good effect on Dania Beach." ~ Robert Baldwin, City Manager, City of Dania Beach
